National Forest Rules

CNN ran an AP story on the White House’s new national forest rules. Fox News ran their own story. CNN’s AP article was longer at 718 words with Fox at 423. CNN’s headline is more neutral with “White House issues new national forest rules.” Fox’s headline was “White House proposes forest rules upheaval.”

Both talk about the new rules and give opposing views. CNN has 222 words about opposing views from environmentalists, 31% of the article. Fox News has 93 words about opposing views, 22% of its article.
