News Hour with Jim Lehrer

David was the moderator at the now famous Davos meeting.

Gergen: I thought he blundered, he went too far, but he also walked it back and that's why I believe sometimes it's terribly sad that he resigned over... and I think the punishment far exceeds the offense.

I finally found some video of someone who was there. It's a good round table discussion on the topic. Gergen clearly is someone who didn't believe that he should have been fired. There was talk of bloggers wanting to take down Eason Jordan. The effect bloggers had on the story itself. Questions about the why the tape hasn't been released. Where was the MSM on the story.
