Senate Energy Bill

With the Senate considering an energy bill, CNN and Fox today have published very different views on global warming despite similar headlines for their articles. Here are the opening sentences from both. Note that Fox’s article comes from a column entitled “Junk Science” and, below, uses the term “radical eco-activist movement.” Note CNN’s “major challenge to President Bush.”

CNN: Environmentalists, industry increase push on Congress (06.21.2005)
Industry groups and environmentalists lobbied hard to sway lawmakers' votes Monday as the Senate prepared for a major challenge to President Bush's global warming policy.

FOX: Global Warming Heats Up in Senate - Tuesday, June 21, 2005 - Global warming is a hot issue in Congress right now, but not just because of pressure from the usual suspects in the radical eco-activist movement. Instead, a few businesses are leading the charge — which happens to be calculated to fill their coffers at the public's expense.
