Sudan Crisis

In addition to comparing CNN and Fox News articles on the same event, I occasionally look at what articles they cover. I noticed in my “2004: Top ten stories” post below that CNN had listed the Sudan crisis as number 9 but Fox did not list it at all. Today I did a search of both sites using “Sudan” as the search term. The following headlines, specifically about the Sudan crisis (this excludes articles such as the Pope’s Christmas message that mentions Sudan, among other things), were listed for the last 10 days:
