Eason Jordan: a Left Blog/Right Blog Issue?

If, as Rebecca MacKinnon and Howard Kurtz have asserted, the Eason Jordan scandal has only infuriated right-wing blogs, then the leftists' abject moral bankruptcy and propensity for convenient lies is once again confirmed.

From Howard Kurtz:
This triggered widespread denunciations of Jordan by conservative bloggers, who have also criticized the mainstream media for not reporting the remarks.
From Rebecca MacKinnon:
So far, most of the activity is on the right-hand side of the political spectrum, with center and left blogs plus non-rightwing MSM largely silent.
How many liberal bloggers profess support for the troops? Of those, how many have written to condemn Eason Jordan's allegations against the troops? If a blogger claims to support the troops, yet remains silent when a CNN executive slanders them and the MSM stonewall the story, that blogger is a liar.
