Democratic Debate in Sout Carolina

Eight Democratic hopefuls participated in a debate in South Carolina. CNN’s AP article was more anti-Bush; or you could say Fox’s was more Bush-friendly. CNN’s headline was “Democratic candidates batter Bush during debate.” Fox’s headline merely notes a debate on the war with “Democrats Debate Iraq War Policy During South Carolina Debate.”

CNN’s opening sentence was very anti-war and noted the “heaping” of criticism on Bush:

Democratic presidential hopefuls flashed their anti-war credentials Thursday night, heaping criticism on President Bush's Iraq policy in the first debate of the 2008 campaign.

Fox’s opening sentence noted that half of the candidates agreed that we are fighting a war on terror (this was not noted in CNN’s article):

At the first full-fledged Democratic presidential debate of the campaign season, four of the eight candidates agreed that the United States is in a "global War on Terror."
