Vice President Cheney's Radio Interview

Vice President Cheney was interviewed Thursday on Don Imus’ radio show. CNN and Fox News reported very differently on the interview. Both ran AP articles. CNN focuses on an admitted mistake by Cheney and then mentions his comments on Iran. Fox avoids the mention of any mistakes and focuses more on Iran.

CNN’s headline is “Cheney blames ‘miscalculation’ for slow Iraq recovery.” The first part of the article focuses on Cheney being “asked to name his mistakes in planning the war in Iraq.” The second part of the article is about Cheney’s statement about Iran topping “the list of ‘the world's potential trouble spots.’”

On the other hand, Fox’s article is headlined “Iran in spotlight at start of Bush’s second term.” This article is more about Iran but includes quotes from the same Cheney radio interview. The “miscalculation” is not mentioned.
