"...public opinion deserves to be respected as well as despised" G.W.F. Hegel, 'Philosophy of Right'

Selling the imperial presidency « Previous | |Next »
December 21, 2003

The sell is by the New York Times. The journalism piece attached was positively supportive. It celebrates mission accomplished without a touch of irony.

This is the liberal media in the US.

I know that Fox Television is the unofficial media arm of the Republican Party. But the NYT licking the boots of the imperial presidency?

I thought that the NYT was the bastion of American liberalism that Republicans love to hate.

On the other hand, we can read the image critically. It shows the staged nature of the whole media performance thus disclosing how much of politics is theatre.
