Senate Bickering

One indication of bias is the number of words quoted from each side of an issue. In this mornings postings on the Democrats forcing a rare closed session, I counted the words of direct quotes of Democrats vs. Republicans. Here are the results:

CNN: Democrats-184 words to Republicans-98.

FOX: Democrats-404 words to Republicans-405.

Fox's article was longer with balanced quotes while CNN had twice as many words of Democratic direct quotes.
