Story Coverage

Everyone should know not to get their news from just one source. Yesterday, I had a post on how CNN had four recent articles on debt relief for Africa and Fox had none. I also noticed over the last few days other stories that CNN or Fox covered but were not covered by the other. So, I decided to list some of those articles. This is not a complete list but I find it interesting.

If you just read Fox, you would not have seen these CNN articles:
Pentagon sites: Journalism or propaganda? (02.05.2005)
The U.S. Department of Defense plans to add more sites on the Internet to provide information to a global audience -- but critics question whether the Pentagon is violating President Bush's pledge not to pay journalists to promote his policies. [CNN]
Iran: Bush shouldn't point fingers on terror (02.06.2005)
President Bush has no authority to accuse Iran of sponsoring terrorism while the U.S. supports "Zionist terrorists" and runs military prisons that use "torture," Tehran's Foreign Ministry spokesman said on Sunday. [CNN]
Cheney: 'I will not run' for president (02.07.2005)
Vice President Dick Cheney Sunday categorically ruled out a run for the White House in 2008, even if asked by the Republican president who recruited him back into government. [Reuters]
