For the first couple of weeks in 2010 I am publishing a quick thought each day on conservatives vs. liberals. As usual, I will try to stay as neutral as possible.

Different Approaches to a Bolton Update
Both CNN and Fox News ran updates on the progress, or lack thereof, on Bush’s nomination of Bolton to the U.N. post.The articles are almost mirror images of each other with Fox again being more favorable to Bolton than CNN (or, if you prefer, CNN is more negative towards Bolton than Fox).Fox leads its story with the fact that former British Prime Minister Margaret Thatcher gave her support to Bolton.One sentence is given later to Senator Biden hinting “that he might seek another delay in the panel's vote on Bolton if the State Department fails to honor both sides' requests.”By contrast CNN uses Biden in its headline and in the majority of its article closing with a statement about Thatcher’s support at the end.
I have enabled the "comment moderation" feature. This is because I had been receiving a lot of spam comments. Rest assured, if you keep it clean and relevant, I will publish the comment (even if you disagree with me).
