Howard Dean on Iraq

I’ll see how this story continues to be handled but the initial coverage of Democratic National Committee Chairman Howard Dean’s speech Monday was quite different by CNN and Fox News. CNN ran a 380-word story with a picture of Howard Dean. Fox News ran an AP story that was uncharacteristically short at only 152 words. Its story did not have a picture of Dean but rather a picture of Secretary Rumsfeld. Fox also ran a story Monday on comments by Rumsfeld with the headline, “Rumsfeld: Americans Should Be Optimistic About Iraq.” CNN did not run that story.
