Pro-religion or Anti-gay? Rhetorical differences in reporting.

Fellow blogger Bellatricksy alerted me to this, and I'm saving it for the next time I teach rhetoric. I captured these images within minutes of each other (26 Feb 2014) and both are reporting on the same veto of the same Arizona bill.

"Arizona Religious Bill Is Vetoed," The Wall Street Journal
"Brewer vetoes bill denying service to gays," The Washington Post

How can we ever agree in this country if we aren't even arguing about the same things?
