More on Terri Schiavo: Coverage

This post goes along with my most recent post on Terri Schiavo. Fox has clearly kept the situation more in the forefront this month. Searching both of their sites for stories this from March 1st through March 15th, shows two articles on CNN’s site compared with seven for Fox. I am not counting the recent media frenzy of the last few days but am just looking at how important the story was to either based on the frequency of coverage earlier in the month. Here are the headlines and links:

CNN:
