Bush and Chirac -- photos

To continue on with what I mentioned in my last post, I again noticed differences in the AP photos that CNN and Fox chose for their articles on Bush's visit to Europe. This time the articles are about Bush's meeting with Chirac. As you can see below, Fox's choice of an AP photo shows a smiling Bush and Chirac while they clasp hands. CNN's photo does not show them clasping hands and both mouths are downturned. Subtle but telling of biases.
