Wanted: "I Support the Troops" Quote by Eason Jordan
I offer a reward:
THE PRIZE: The Word Unheard will place you at the top of the Blogroll indefinitely and in addition is offering the choice of the following 3 :
A.) The Word Unheard will thoroughly research and write at length on the topic of your choosing;
B.) The Word Unheard will post a glorious and glowing review of your own blog, post it and shamelessly beg all bloggers known to post a link to it;
or, for those so inclined...
C.) The Word Unheard will refrain from blogging or commenting at all for 2 full weeks (please don't pick that one).
THE CHALLENGE: Be the first kid on your block to e-mail me or e-mail any of the Core Bloggers administrators of Easongate one or more linkable quotes from Eason Jordan where he states on behalf of himself, CNN or journalists in general:
"I/WE SUPPORT THE TROOPS"
If Eason Jordan has ever uttered those words, I want that quote framed in my office next to his conniving mug and I will pay for it in kind.
Search Tip: Do you remember the big flap about certain networks not wanting their anchors to wear American flag lapel pins on air, lest that network be percieved as pro-American and biased? (Of all things, they do not want to be biased, of course.) Surely the head of CNN News had something to say and felt the need to soften the edge of his remarks with tossing a cheap and disingenuous '....but we support the troops...' qualifier. Can anyone find such a quote? Maybe he never said such a thing, but that must be regarded as highly unlikely considering his high-profile position and the litany of bias charges regarding Iraq War coverage.
