CONTAINING LINKS TO 1280 STORIES FROM THE NETWORKS' NIGHTLY NEWSCASTS

And NBC covered a potential Presidential candidate too. Kelly O'Donnell examined the announcement by Fred Thompson, the onetime Republican senator from Tennessee, that he had been diagnosed with a slow-growing lymphoma. O'Donnell played Thompson's soundbite from Fox News Channel's Neil Cavuto Live Your World with Neil Cavuto: "I have had no sickness, no symptoms. I would not know I had it if the doctor had not told me." O'Donnell observed that Thompson "would not have gone public with his cancer if he were not thinking about the White House."
