UPDATE: Easongate

The Globe has set it all straight apparently getting a hold of all the people who were mentioned by the right hemisphere.
Still, a statement released yesterday by a spokesman for Senator Christopher Dodd, Democrat of Connecticut, said the senator, who was in the audience for the discussion, was ''outraged by the comments."

Representative Barney Frank, who was on the panel, told The Boston Globe yesterday that attendees ''perked up" after Jordan made remarks that ''sounded like accusing the military of deliberate targeting." Frank said Jordan then backed off a bit, saying he wasn't indicating that such targeting represented US military policy.

The discussion moderator, David Gergen, director of the Center for Public Leadership at Harvard's John F. Kennedy School of Government, said yesterday that Jordan seemed ''deeply concerned about the dangers to his own team" in Iraq.

BRACE YOURSELVES! The Right Hemisphere is going to pull out all the stops on this and sure enough Hannity and O'Reilly will opine on this today and in the comming days. They will try to defrock Jordan.

This in no way shape or form makes the media liberal, nor does it mean that CNN is the most "liberal name in news."

It just means that Eason Jordan had a Freudian slip. He said somethings he didn't mean and he appologized for them. He didn't "pull a Rather" and stick to his guns, he immediately retracted his comment. If we all had microphones on us at times and said things we may not have wanted to be public we would...

Well, we would be President:
August 5, 2004 - Referring to the country's enemies, Bush said, "They never stop thinking about new ways to harm our country and our people, and neither do we."
