Iraq--Election Begins

The elections in Iraq have started. I have noted how CNN, Fox, and others are headlining the event on their respective web sites. Fox's headline stands out as emphasizing democracy in Iraq. CNN is neutral. As might be expected, Aljazeera emphasizes violence as the polls open. Here are the headlines at this time:

Fox: First step to joining the free world
BBC: President launches Iraq election
CNN: Iraqis begin voting
Associated Press: Iraqis begin historic vote amid attacks
MSNBC: Violent start to vote
Reuters: Iraq election begins, insurgent attacks kill 2
Aljazeera: Several bomb attacks as polls open
