Why the lack of "TR Centennial" coverage by the MSM?
- Will the MSM wait until '08 or '09 to begin discussing/highlighting
TR's merits as president even though we have already passed the
centennial mark on such highwater events in his presidency as the
Treaty of Portsmouth?
Why no in-depth articles on TR's presidency by the NY Times or Time
Magazine? Does his military career and gung-ho Americanism scare off
many of today's MSM editors/writers? TR is embraced/quoted today
by politicians of all stripes and colors, albeit by the cherry
picker approach to his wide-ranging beliefs and background.
However, our MSM seem to have the opposite reaction to him. When he
is mentioned in the NY Times or any other newspaper, he's usually
referred to as "Teddy" (which immediately tells me that the
writer/editors have very little knowledge of TR).
Our only NYC-born president seems to have flown beneath the radar of
such great NY institutions as the Museum of the City of NY, the NY
Historical Society, etc. Five years into his centennial presidency
and no NYC museum has thought to stage a TR exhibit yet? Not even
the Museum of Natural History? For shame.
Has pacifism run amouk so rampantly in the halls of the NY/DC board
rooms and in the living rooms of the Upper West or East Sides of NY
that one of our greatest presidents will not be celebrated (or even
debated) 100 years later?
