Coverage Comparison

There's a new study out comparing how the media covered Sen. Dick Durbin's (search) remarks — about treatment of prisoners — and Karl Rove's (search) speech about the response to the attacks of September 11.

Here's what the Media Research Center found:

On the Rove flap — which broke Wednesday night — ABC and NBC jumped on it, carrying stories Thursday night and Friday morning.

But on the Durbin story, a very different reaction:

ABC and NBC waited seven days — ignoring the entire controversy — until Durbin apologized on the Senate floor.

And CBS never covered the story at all.
