This essay and art project investigates the formation of popular mythologies ascribed to President Obama through the rhetorical narratives promoted in broadcast news media.
Bias framing of political news, which in the past decade has become more transparent and ubiquitous.
The 2010 news cycle was selected for its high profile policy battles— Affordable Care Act, Dodd Frank— and the introduction of the TeaParty and there impact on the 2010 Midterm Election; all key in the media framing of the newly elected Obama Administration.
RESULT: Portraits of Obama
A systematic approach to visualizing and illuminating the problem of bias in news media and it’s role as a cultural frame and product.
