Fox Blasts Eason Jordan

From the FoxNews Political Grapevine by Brit Hume
Despite his denials, a growing number of witnesses are saying CNN executive Eason Jordan did indeed suggest that American troops deliberately targeted journalists in Iraq. Democratic Congressman Barney Frank, who first brought Jordan's comments to light, says he was "agog" at the accusation and that he still doesn't accept Jordan's explanation. Democratic Senator Christopher Dodd says he was in the audience, and that he was "outraged."

And David Gergen, who was moderating the panel discussion, says he "gasped" when he heard Jordan's remarks. Gergen says that Jordan later "walked back" the comments, but other witnesses disagree.
Sheesh, took long enough.
