Oil-for-food Scandal: update on coverage by Fox and CNN

A week ago I noted that Fox News was paying a lot of attention to the U.N.’s oil-for-food scandal and CNN practically no attention. In that post (http://cnnvsfox.blogspot.com/2005/05/oil-for-food-scandal-coverage-by-fox.html) I noted that Fox had eight articles in the previous five days to none for CNN. It is a week later and CNN still has no articles while Fox has 12. Here are the links:
