NY Times Honors Reagan New York Times coverage of the unveiling of Ronald Reagan's statue in the Capitol Rotunda on Wednesday reveals not only how myths are perpetuated in the media but also how the omission of critical context distorts history.
In the print version of Thursday's Times report, readers are at least given a terse idea of the man Mr. Reagan's statue was replacing Thomas Starr King, "the 19 century Unitarian minister known as the 'orator who saved the nation' for helping to keep California from seceding as a republic during the Civil War." Yet in the posted a day earlier, and a full 140 words longer than its printed companion, King is described only as "a 19th century Unitarian minister and 'Orator Who Saved the Nation.'" But aside from the appearance of the Times having done nothing more than to cut and paste from the first two sentences of King's Wikipedia entry (for which journalists and news outlets ), the historical significance of supplanting King's statue quanto costa agenda louis vuitton with that of Reagan's seems completely lost on our paper of record. As usual, context is king, but it's in short supply in the print edition and non existent in the online piece. Moreover, quite literally in this case, context is King. And also Reagan. The real Reagan, however, not the cartoonish log splitting and horseback riding grandfather who "won the Cold War" and "made louis vuitton amazon speedy us proud to be Americans." Beyond the bizarrely inscrutable Times description "19th century Unitarian minister and 'Orator Who Saved the Nation'" and even with the additional stingy mention that he happened to save the nation by "helping to keep California louis vuitton neverfull inspired from seceding as a republic during the Civil War," Thomas Starr King was an American hero deemed so for actual virtuous, brave and patriotic deeds while Ronald Reagan's heroic status is almost wholly a. (I say "almost wholly" because Reagan was admittedly a great politician a former actor who did much to convince many Americans to believe this myth; at the time, it wasn't only a media creation. Moreover, the American presidency itself confers certain intrinsic mythic qualities, ready made for such a charismatic figure.) McClatchy Newspapers reporter Rob Hotakainen supplies some of that much needed context about King. Not everyone's pleased that Reagan is being put on a pedestal, particularly the descendants of Starr King, who helped keep California in the Union during the Civil War.'Who was Thomas Starr King?' " said Ginny King Supple, Starr King's great great granddaughter, from Los Angeles. "He never got the public recognition after the fact. He was very well known back in the 1800s and early 1900s. So it is disturbing." She voted for Reagan, but she said: "From a historical perspective, Thomas Starr King had a lot more to do with the state of the state of California, as opposed to President Reagan. I'm not coming down on Ronald Reagan. He was basically a great man in many ways, but the history of California lies with Thomas Starr King.
That's why he was chosen." louis vuitton agenda club [As both versions of the Times article notes, each state in the country gets two statues with which to honor its heroes.].
