The second casualty 

Jeremy Scahill's take on the Eason controversy at "The Nation": "Shooting the Messenger". Writes Scahill:
"[Eason's] comments quickly ignited a firestorm on the Internet, fueled by right-wing bloggers, that led to Jordan's recanting, apologizing and ultimately resigning after twenty-three years at the network... But the real controversy here should not be over Jordan's comments. The controversy ought to be over the unconscionable silence in the United States about the military's repeated killing of journalists in Iraq."
Is Scahill really saying that right-wing bloggers are not only professionally killing media executives, they are actually targeting them?

Somebody release the Scahill tape!
