Condi Rice -- Photos (2)

I hope I am not being too picky here but I often wonder about the decision-making that goes into picking a picture to go with an article. CNN and Fox often use the same or comparable pictures. But, here is an example (as I have noted before) where Bush administration officials are shown in a slightly different light by CNN and Fox, even though both are using AP photos. In the example shown below, Secretary Condi Rice is shown discussing a State Department Human Rights report. CNN uses a close-up where Rice has a strange look to her face and she is not particularly pleasant looking. Fox, on the other hand uses a much more complimentary photo where she is smiling, animated, and looking confident, with the whole world behind her. [For another example with Rice see this post: http://cnnvsfox.blogspot.com/2005/01/condi-rices-confirmation-hearing.html]
