Some Careful Pruning Of The "Grapevine"

Reported by Priscilla - May 30, 2008 -

One of the "pickings" on last night's (May 29th) Special Report "Grapevine" was an item about a recent study done by The Project for Excellence in Journalism which showed that, according to Hume, "FOX News did offer more positive than negative assertions about Clinton." But Hume did not include the full quote: "Fox News did offer more positive than negative assertions about Clinton, but less so than the other channels (54% positive versus 70% on CNN and 72% on MSNBC). In particular, Fox News gave more attention to the image of Clinton as unlikable and divisive than either of the other networks, (22% versus 13% on CNN and only 4% on MSNBC)."

But once again, Fox likes to keep it simple.
