    Here are today's headlines for MSNBC.com and FoxNews.com, the two most partisan media outlets on TV. Try to guess which is which, lol:

    Group 1:

    Obama in good standing as Ramadan begins

    Stocks shoot up on Bernanke’s comments - The Dow Jones industrials close above 9,500 for the first time since Nov. 4...

    Bernanke: Economy on cusp of recovery

    Unemployment dips in 17 states, rises in 26

    Owners given last chance to save home

    _______________________________________________________________________

    Group 2:

    Trillions and Trillions - Obama administration will reportedly increase 10-year budget deficit...

    Bernanke: U.S. Economy on the Verge of Recovery

    Poll Shows Americans Losing Faith in Obama

    Dems Hosting Few Traditional Town Hall Meetings

    Obama Guarantees Health Reform

    FORUM: How Obama Can Avoid Disaster?

    It's like they're from two completely different planets.

    No, it's more like they have two different audiences.

    The headlines are both technically correct.

    I'm not so sure that with a tweak or two such as below, you wouldn't find that first headline on Fox. It would go like this:


    Obama in good standing with Muslims as Ramadan begins

    or


    Obama in good standing with Muslim clerics as Ramadan begins

    See it is all in how you look at things.
