Mosque gets approval at Ground Zero

I saw a commentary/wrap up on Good Morning America this morning about the decision to allow the building of a mosque at the Ground Zero site in New York City. It was interesting to watch ABC's George Stephanopoulos talking about this issue with a Fox News contributer (announced as such) who focused in the story on the fairness of the brand new mosque being approved when a Greek Orthodox congregation that was destroyed in 2001 has not been allowed to rebuild.

The story has gotten a lot attraction in the blogosphere, both from neutral and less neutral sources, but I thought it was interesting to compare both networks' coverage.

ABC here.

Fox here.
