Howard Kurtz has finally -- finally, goddammit!! -- covered the Eason Jordan scandal. If you don't know what the "Eason Jordan scandal" is, you are either a stonewalling tribalist, a willing executor of the nefarious "Unwritten Blacklist", a possible-sedition enabler, or a victim thereof. Thankfully, while you slept, Michelle Malkin, Hugh Hewitt, and the patriots at (surprise!) EasonGate continue to keep the Republic safe from hyperbolic accusations made (and then quickly retracted) by powerful news executives at possibly off-the-record discussions in Switzerland. (Pre-emptive disclosure -- I think Jordan is a booby-head, I look forward to his next four weeks of public squirming, and I cherish the freedoms that allow people to convince each other that journalists are shying away from EasonGate because it would hurt "their chances for other lucrative job offers, for advancement, and for invitations to all the right parties in New York, Washington, and the Hamptons.")
