The Times is now (finally) entering the fray on the takedown of Eason Jordan, rightly choosing to focus on the guy who started the deluge of self-righteous ire directed at MSM (mainsteam media, Dear Reader, remember?). What’s cute about the article is to study CNN’s hopeless attempt at spin control. No, guys, the “out of context” defense only works if you’re either Scott McClellan or if anybody’s afraid they won’t get access to your boss; nobody’s afraid of a flack from Atlanta. The only known net effect of this whole thing?

Rony, your 15-minute clock is starting…now.
