Politics, Subliminal Editorial

Rupert’s Wall Street Journal Now Channeling Zap Comix

We always get a kick out of subliminal editorializing in news articles thru the use of photos.

And in this case Rupert Murdoch’s Wall Street Journal really has set a new (low) standard in their coverage of the recent Governors Conference.

It appears to me that the WSJ editorial staff selected this picture of California Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger and New York Gov. David Paterson to make them look like Political Caricatures that were drawn by Robert Crumb for an issue of Zap Comix.

This Picture Was Picked To Convey A Message

Of course the WSJ opposes Gov. Schwarzenegger because he’s a Republican that is willing to work constructively with Democrats. And Gov. Paterson is, well, a Democrat.

What surprised me is why the WSJ didn’t go ahead and just finish what they started.

But Why Not Stretch Things Just A Little More?

  1. Or, in my opinion – Paterson because he is a liberal Democrat and Swarzenegger because he is liberal Republican who gave in to the even more liberal special interest groups in CA. But the picture is hilarious!
