Update: I still want to see that videotape. I suspect that the top brass at CNN have seen it, and that's the reason for this shockingly sudden resignation. As for tarnishing CNN, why didn't Jordan feel compelled to resign after his admission that he had suppressed stories earlier to keep CNN's Baghdad bureau open (The News We Kept to Ourselves)? This was too easy. Something else is up.
