Eason Jordan: “Aggressive & Passionate About Making Life Safer” For Journos

We shouldn’t forget that Eason Jordan was, as the NY Times says, “aggressive and passionate about making life safer for journalists working in Iraq.” “Fifty-seven news media staffers have been killed there in the past 19 months,” he told me in November. He spent countless hours keeping his colleagues alive.

We should not forget his larger point at the Davos conference. At least nine journalists have died as a result of American fire. “From our standpoint, journalists are not being targeted by the U.S. military in Iraq,” Ann Cooper, executive director for the Committee to Protect Journalists, told the Times. “But there certainly are cases where an atmosphere of what, at best, you can call indifference has led to deaths and other problems for journalists.”
