Elise Jordan on her late husband Michael Hastings: "He always had at least five hot stories going"

Roughly six weeks since journalist Michael Hastings lost his life in an automobile accident, on Monday evening his widow Elise Jordan joined Piers Morgan for her first national interview since his death:

"I was blessed to have the time with him that I had," she told the "Piers Morgan Live" host. "So I feel very lucky for that, and [I am] taking it day by day."

An outspoken critic of war in the Middle East, it was Hastings' "Rolling Stone" article entitled "The Runaway General" that led to the firing, and soon thereafter, retirement of US Army general Stanley McChrystal.

Since Hastings' death, various conspiracy theories have suggested that his car accident may be related to one of the author's typically intense investigations:

"I have no doubt that he was pursuing a hot story. He always had at least five hot stories going. That was Michael," Hastings' widow explained. "Right now the LAPD still has an active investigation ... my gut here is that it was just a really tragic accident and I'm unlucky in the world, the world was very unlucky."

Watch the clip for more of Morgan's interview with Elise Jordan, including Jordan's detailing her recent request for a retraction from the "New York Times," and for the next edition of "Piers Morgan Live," watch CNN every night at 9.

    "...Jordan's detailing her recent request for a retraction from the "New York Times..."

    Elise Jordan, objected to the “blatant mischaracterization” in his obituary” and wrote the NYT's asking them to make corrections: “If a reporter at the Times actually would read and properly analyze the Pentagon report, they would find exactly the opposite [ of an inaccurate story] … the mischaracterization in the obituary reflects a longstanding – and ongoing – misrepresentation of the facts in and surrounding this story by the Times … I personally transcribed and have all the tape recordings of Michael’s interviews during his time with [Gen. Stanley] McChrystal and his staff. I can personally verify that some of the most damning comments were made by McChrystal himself, and many others made by his aides in his presence were greeted with his enthusiastic approval.”

    However, the NYT obituaries editor refused to make corrections to Hasting’s obituary. He claimed that “it’s not The Times that is questioning the article’s accuracy; it was the Defense Department. We're simply reporting what it publicly said” … [“as we must, if we’re going to write an honest obit about him.”] Really? His response brings to mind a quote from the film “V for Vendetta” in which a TV broadcaster said, "our job is to report the news, not fabricate it; that's the government's job.”

    For details, see the post (updated yesterday), "More Lies Borne Out By Facts, If Not the Truth" - The New York Time’s Disingenuous Obituary of Michael Hastings & Their Whitewash of Gen. Stanley McChrystal’s Role in “Le’Affair Rolling Stan” & “The Pat Tillman Story,” at the Feral Firefighter blog. It begins with tribute quotes about MH.

    Why the personality change? Doesn't appear to be a woman in mourning. Did she hit the jackpot? Or did someone get to her and threatened her? Offered her something to keep quiet. Sure hope Biggs and info wars follow through with there own investigation. Justice. It was no accident.

A small number of my blog visitors have complained about my website not operating correctly in Explorer but looks great in Opera. Do you have any recommendations to help fix this problem?|

    Hello this is somewhat of off topic but I was wanting to know if blogs use WYSIWYG editors or if you have to manually code with HTML.

    I'm starting a blog soon but have no coding knowledge so I wanted to get guidance from someone with experience.
    Any help would be enormously appreciated!

    I made a few songs and I want to know how to alter the copyright content on an MP3 file so I can share it online? I want to add (p) Swagers Studios (2009) to the copyright content and was wondering if it was possible. Any help is greatly appreciated.. It's still not letting me edit the copyright content. Ive noticed that some MP3's I downloaded off the net have unofficial copyrights like ZOMG company. If you can't help it's okay.

    Local Law 196 is a NYC DOB law that requires workers and supervisors at most NYC construction sites to obtain a SST card by completing specific courses through a NYC DOB approved training provider. Able Safety offers multiple packages to complete this training at great low prices. All our SST classes can be completed entirely online from any device (phone, tablet, pc/mac). The NYC DOB’s SST compliance deadline was originally set for September 1st 2020. The deadline has since been extended to March 1st 2021. By this date you will need the following to be allowed to work on most construction sites in NYC.

    This piece of writing here seems like an awesome, seriously excellent article. very appreciate for printing and allowing me to read your journey. Recently the publishing music services is all deep self-involved, it's very hard to get somewhere. That's why we need to support the newbie singers, watch their Youtube and Instagram feeds, help with fan support, share on twitter. Only with help of collective labors can we achive easy music access on Earth.
