CNN vs. Fox: War is lost? is jumping all over Senator Reid's sound bite of the "war is lost." At this time of day (8:00pm MDT) you can not find any reference to Senator Reid on CNN's home page or on its "Politics" page. You have to do a serach to find an AP article about President Bush meeting with Senator Reid and other lawmakers. I suspect that CNN may have more to say tomorrow. However, Fox highlights Reid as one its main stories on its home page and includes a video clip in its "Politics" section. I don't like the repeated use of sound bites because it tends to take things out of context as it does in this case. On the other hand, it was a pretty outrageuous thing for Reid to say.
