CNN Just Discovered Captain's Quarters

Hey, folks, guess what I just received in my e-mail?

Many blogs have taken Mr. Jordan's remarks out of context. Eason Jordan does not believe the U.S. military is trying to kill journalists. Mr. Jordan simply pointed out the facts: While the majority of journalists killed in Iraq have been slain at the hands of insurgents, the Pentagon has also noted that the U.S. military on occasion has killed people who turned out to be journalists. The Pentagon has apologized for those actions.

Mr. Jordan was responding to an assertion by Cong. Frank that all 63 journalist victims had been the result of "collateral damage."

I posted this earlier, as TKS had received it after sending CNN a complaint by e-mail. However, I never did send CNN an e-mail -- and this message was e-mailed to me specifically, with my address in the To: field.

Do you think someone at CNN might be a tad worried?

UPDATE 6:11 PM CT: Still no evidence of any response at CNN's website.

UPDATE II: I'll be on Hugh Hewitt around 6:45 PM CT to discuss the story.
