CNN accusing Pentagon of proproganda?

[Media Source*]

(via Power Line Blog) Excuse me! Wasn't it CNN a while ago accusing (through their mis-information minister Eason Jordan) the pentagon for "targeting their journalists" with a body count of 12 dead (later on reduced to three)? Now they are claiming that the Pentagon can not even defend itself "net wise" because that would be some kind of breach of the "Bush Order."
Pentagon officials say the goal is to counter "misinformation" about the United States in overseas media.

At first glance, the Web pages appear to be independent news sites. To find out who is actually behind the content, a visitor would have to click on a small link -- at the bottom of the page -- to a disclaimer, which says, in part, that the site is "sponsored by" the U.S. Department of Defense.

What else do you think the Pentagon should do when journalists make false claims that can be pretty damaging? And you wonder why Fox News is ahead? Ironically though, many of the major networks are not covering the issue? None at all? Where is Bill O'Reilly? (the "Teleblogger" as I call him) Are their any hero's out there? I think I am going to email him about this outrage and hope that he somehow deals with it!

Here is what Captain's Quarters had to say about the issue:
What about CNN's competitors? MS-NBC gives us a goose egg. Ditto for CBS News, although that may well be a case of professional courtesy. ABC News gives Eason a pass. Even Fox carries nothing on the controversy.

Here we have the man running a major news organization who has accused the US military, on at least two separate occasions in the last three months, of atrocities specifically aimed at journalists -- and the news media remains completely silent about it? Does that make any sense to you, other than a deliberate media blackout? Hell, even Eason Jordan responded, if completely inadequately -- doesn't that make the newspaper or the web sites?

I think a Blog Swarm is in Action here...Eason Jordan should start taking notes from Dan Rather. Selah.
