FOX Webcrawl vs FOX Big Facts

Reported by Marie Therese - August 17, 2004 -

Big Story with John Gibson, August 16, 2004.

At 5:18 PM EDT the following webcrawl ran at the lower part of the screen:

"Pakistan's military downplays published report describing a 'summit of terrorists' held in March in lawless tribal regions bordering Afghanistan. Officials admit remote areas in recent months have been visited by foreign and local Al Qaeda-linked terrorists to coordinate operations, but say it wasn't a summit and the story is 'fictionalized.'"

At 5:45 PM EDT the following BIG FACTS were aired:

Time: Terror summit took place in Pakistan in March.
Time: Some who attended the Summit have been arrested.
Time: Musharaff said summit exposed Al Qaeda's '2nd string'

We report. You decide.
