U.S. Leaders' Reactions to Pope's Death

Both CNN and Fox had two articles each on U.S. reaction to the Pope’s death. I compared which leaders they each quoted and found many that were the same. But, they each had unique quotes as well. Its no surprise that Pat Robertson was on Fox only but by and large it was pretty balanced overall. I’ve listed them below in case you are interested:

President Bush

Nancy Reagan

Rabbi Eric Yoffie, president of the Union for Reform Judaism

The Rev. Billy Graham

President Bill Clinton
