President Bush -- pictures

OK, I might be stretching this a bit, but I wonder. Both CNN and FOX have AP pictures accompanying stories on Bush speaking in Brussels. Both had, I assume, opportunities to pick from a collection of AP photos. Below, I show CNN's chosen picture on the left with Fox's on the right. I believe that Fox's image of Bush shows a perhaps stronger president. CNN's picture shows a less animated Bush who is looking off to who knows where. Fox's picture makes the president look engaged. CNN's shows Bush's mouth as downturned whereas his mouth is slightly upturned in Fox's picture. Again bias is shown, by either news source, in their choices of pictures.
