Eason Jordan update
: A BBC exec who as at the Davos panel where Jordan spoke tells Jay Rosen that Jordan was misinterpreted. He says what I took away from Jordan’s own responses: He’s saying that journalists were shot by snipers so they were not “collateral damage” — the phrase that started the discussion — but were targeted, though he’s not saying they were targeted as journalists. It’s still all rather muddled and it could stand a reporter doing a good story to clear this up. That, after all, is supposed to be what reporters do.
