Just got off the phone with Howard Kurtz. It's confirmed. Eason Jordan resigned today about an hour ago
This is the statement CNN put out:
After 23 years at CNN, I have decided to resign in an effort to prevent CNN from being unfairly tarnished by the controversy over conflicting accounts of my recent remarks regarding the alarming number of journalists killed in Iraq.
I listened to Senator Dodd on Imus say that he thought he heard Jordan imply that U.S. troops were targeting journalists at the conference. I think Davos should release the tapes.
