Liver Mallory Body vs Councilman Body

Can anyone explain the difference between a Mallory body seen in alcoholic liver disease and a Councilman body seen in Viral hepatitis. I know both are eosinophilic, but I cannot understand the difference.

Also, does anyone have any good images of these two to compare?

Thanks!

Not exactly sure, but when I wiki'd it, they show two pictures that look different but then again in both, it says that the hepatocytes undergo apoptosis (Ballooning degeneration). May be the pictures will help -
