Condi Rice in Europe: Half Full or Half Empty?

Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice finished a visit to Europe. CNN and Fox News however give different treatment to her success, or lack thereof. This can easily be seen from the headlines and the opening sentences of their respective articles:

CNN: Europe fears linger on U.S. torture

U.S. Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice eased European ministers' worries with reassuring denials of allegations of torture by American forces, but many across the continent remained unconvinced as she wound up a European visit Friday.

FOX: Rice Europe Trip a Success by Most Counts

Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice is getting mostly high marks from European leaders after a trip there viewed by some observers as a test of her ability to convince allies that the United States remains committed to the human rights of terrorism detainees.
