Coverage

I thought I would check to see what stories they are each covering. What they choose to cover and how the headlines are worded can be indicative of some type of bias. At 5 pm November 20, 2004, I checked and found that CNN did not have a story on the House resolution praising the Boy Scouts and condeming legal efforts to cut federal ties to the organization. On an intelligence story, CNN puts "GOP lawmakers block intelligence overhaul" in the headline. Fox's headline was "Congress Fails to Pass Intelligence Overhaul." The story talks of republican blocks but does not put that in the headline.
