Palestinian Leader Mahmoud Abbas

As I have noted in recent posts, there is sometimes quite a bit of difference in the amount of emphasis given to certain stories over time . Here is another example. I searched each site using “Abbas” as the search term. Here is a list of the December 2004 headlines, for both Fox News and CNN, that include reference to Palestinian leader Mahmoud Abbas in the headline.

Quite a difference. The differences go both ways as you can see by my post for the Sudan crisis with little coverage by Fox News but covered extensively by CNN.
