When Greenspan speaks
Post, Times dont even come close to agreeing on what Fed Chairman has to say.
Its rare that The New York Times
ignores a chance to push for tax increases, but it was the case
yesterday. Over at The Washington Post, Federal Reserve Chairman
Alan Greenspans comments before the Senate Budget Committee
yesterday were described that he expects tax increases to be part
of any eventual agreement to reduce the federal budget deficit. The
Times took another approach entirely and focused on Greenspans call
to reduce the deficit.
Sometimes, its easy to see how differently two newspapers look at a story. Just compare how different the two headlines appear:
Greenspan Says He Expects Tax Increases
New York Times
Greenspan Urges Congress to Rein in Federal Benefits
This disparity is common any time Greenspan speaks. Reporters and editors either pick apart the statement to come up with a unique story or sometimes they simply disagree.
For a more involved comparison between the two stories, take a look for yourself:
