Porch Quote 

The medium is the message
"Rice stands by Iraq data"
--Lead, four-line, 72-point (meaning inch-high letters) headline Sept. 29 in The News & Observer over a story about National Security Advisor Condoleeza Rice defending the intelligence on which President Bush based the invasion of Iraq. Compare that to the 9-point type (even smaller than regular) used Sept. 18 on page 3A over a brief in which President Bush acknowledged, "We have no evidence that Saddam Hussein was involved in the Sept. 11 attacks." Some newspapers put that story on the front page.
