Marriage

On January 20th, CNN and Fox ran AP stories on recent rulings on same-sex marriage. The main story was that a judge had upheld a federal law that allows states to ban same-sex marriages. The AP stories were a little different but the headlines may indicate biases:

CNN: Same-sex marriage proponents vow legal fight.

Fox: Judge throws out same-sex marriage suit.

CNN’s headline is more from the proponents viewpoint whereas Fox’s headline is from the administration’s viewpoint. Fox mentions conservative groups reactions in the second sentence; CNN does not mention opponents until the 10th sentence. Fox ran two stories whereas CNN ran one.
