Terri Schiavo: coverage

Here are some search results from both CNN and Fox News sites on articles today related to the Terri Schiavo case. I have only included what I would call “hard news” stories and have not included opinion pieces or transcripts from their cable news shows. CNN had more reports today but I think you can scan the list and get a sense for the different biases. [Note: Here is a caveat. Some of the CNN stories may be run by Fox tomorrow. Sometimes I have noticed a one or two-day difference between the timing of the publishing of the articles.]

Spouse as next of kin has deep roots (03.29.2005)
