I'm accustomed to the speed....

....that news travels in the blogosphere, but this is amazing. Eason Jordan has resigned his position at CNN. Rathergate took weeks. The "independent investigation" took months — and Rather is still employed. This took about one week. What's next? Newsman commits faux pas — resignation at 11? I'm stunned.

If ever there was confirmation that the blogosphere has arrived, this is it.

UPDATE: Ed has extensive coverage and links to many blogs that are covering the story.

UPDATE2: Chrenkoff points out that Jordan is not the only or even the first to claim that the US military targets journalists.
