ANALYSIS: Comparing Corporate Media's Berrigan Coverage

When you line the various corporate media up next to each
other you quickly see who's copying what, who writes their
own original content -- most importantly who simply reprints

[note: some of these are non-corporate media so you can begin

the 1st link--washingtonpost.com--required me to input valid personal info in order to procede to article.

the 2nd link--syracuse.com--kept forcing me to an automobile add page; the fix was to quickly copy the original link and paste it in the browser's address field (worked for me). page stuck then.
