Fact Check: State of the Union

Both CNN and Fox ran articles that checked some of the facts in President Bush’s State-of-the-Union speech. To my surprise, Fox’s AP story actually addressed more problems than did CNN. Here is a breakdown of the areas in which they each took issue:

CNN:

ABORTION RATE AT 30-YEAR LOW

FEWER TEENAGE MOTHERS

LESS VIOLENT CRIME

CONGRESSIONAL LEADERS KNEW OF DOMESTIC SPY PROGRAM

SELECTIVE VETO POWER

Fox:

ENERGY

HEALTH CARE

SOCIAL SECURITY

IRAQ

KATRINA

HOMELAND SECURITY (spy program)

EDUCATION

SPENDING
