However, there were no graphs or pictures present alongside the news item and the entire weight-age of the article rests upon press releases by AIG and government officials. The article did not show bias towards any point of view and gives no personal opinion at any point. The second article that was analyzed for this yardstick report was one found in CBS News. The article on CBS News titled Summers: AIG Bonuses Are “Outrageous” was on the exact same issue but seemed to perceive it from a slightly different stand point. The lens that the CBS News article used was that of a recent broadcasting of a CBS program called Face The Nation. The article was in light of the perspective presented by the Director of the White House National Economic Council, Lawrence Summers. Summers was apparently in a frustrated state of mind when he made his appearance on the show because he has openly classified AIG’s actions to be outright outrageous (Hechtkopf, 2009). The article made extensive use of online footage and an interesting attention grabbing element was the Comments section in the end that was heavily laden with comments by users who had read the article and chosen to express their opinion. In a combined affect, the article had an anti-AIG impact on the reader.
