October 20

CNN: General in D.C. for security talks
MSNBC: Debt Threat: Thousands of U.S. troops called security risks due to money woes
FoxNews: Bush Summons Abizaid To Discuss Tactics in Iraq

MSNBC highlights the negative in the Iraq issue by casting a segment of the military in a negative light, calling them security risks.

Both CNN and FoxNews headline the discussion with Abizaid on the Iraq situation. But CNN merely says Abizaid is in D.C. for talks, while Fox paints the President as an engaged Commander-in-Chief who "summons" Abizaid.

Also, within the respective articles, FoxNews says that the President made a last-minute change to his schedule to meet with Gen. Abizaid, trying to portray the President as actively taking on the Iraq issue to try and improve the situation.

CNN quotes Tony Snow as saying 'the meetings were scheduled as "part of a regular consultation process,"' implying that the meetings would have taken place anyway as a matter of course and that the President did not take any special action to convene the meeting on Iraq.
