Social Security

CNN and Fox covered Bush’s statements on social security at a White House economic conference. CNN was an AP story while Fox had its own but notes at the end that AP contributed to the report. The headlines are similar, as are the articles. Both talk about Bush’s proposal as well as criticism of the proposal. They provide similar quotes but Fox adds an opposing viewpoint from democrats Pelosi and Reid. CNN’s AP article was 759 words with Fox’s being longer at 1097 words. Fox’s added material included a Fox News/Opinion Dynamic poll that indicated most are in favor of Bush’s idea concerning personal investment.
