Foer's revenge. Franklin Foer, who was attacked by CNN last fall after writing a piece for the New Republic on how the network toadied to Saddam Hussein, responds today on to CNN news chief Eason Jordan's shocking admissions in last Friday's New York Times.

Jordan described covering up his knowledge of terrible human-rights abuses in order to protect his own people in Iraq and to guarantee continued access.

As Foer observes, "Leaving ... might have been preferable to staying under these conditions." Those are words worth contemplating as Jordan and his superiors contemplate his future at CNN as well.
