Schiavo Scorecard
Topic: The ConWeb
The early summary of ConWeb coverage of Terri Schiavo's autopsy report:

WorldNetDaily -- In keeping with its longstanding biases, its initial article fails to report medical examiner's conclusion that Schiavo was indeed in a persistent vegetative state or significance of finding that her brain was half the weight of a normal brain.

NewsMax -- Article claims that "Although millions of Americans watched Terri Schiavo follow people and objects with her eyes as they moved about her hospital room, the doctor who conducted the autopsy reported that she was blind." Also promoting Michael Schiavo-bashing book by Mark Fuhrman. -- Three stories: a comprehensive, balanced account, a sidebar with more details of the findings, and a sidebar with the conservative spin.

Look for a complete roundup of coverage next week on ConWebWatch.
