Republican National Committee Fundraising

This is another case of identical AP stories with different headlines, headlines that show potential bias. The story is about the amount of money that the Republican National Committee has raised during the first quarter of this year. CNN says “Republicans raise more than $32 million.” Fox, however, adds some meaning to the amount by saying “RNC Hits New Fund-Raising Record.” CNN’s is just an amount that is hard for most to relate to. Fox identifies the amount as a record which certainly says more about how the RNC is really doing.

Incidentally, I could click on this article from Fox’s “Politics” section page but I could not find a link on CNN’s “Inside Politics” page even though it has the older story about the Dems slamming Schwarzenegger. I was able to find it through CNN’s search feature.
