Illegal Immigration

I have noted this before but Fox News pays more attention to the issue of illegal immigration. I searched the term “immigration” at both the CNN and Fox News web sites for the past three weeks, October 1st through today the 22nd. The results were dramatically different with two articles for CNN and ten for Fox News. Here are the results:

CNN:
