Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.

I remember a CNN passage in the heated 2000 ridiculing Gore's and Bush's flag wars... That was fair and balanced, presumably.

Where these uses of symbols become obvious to the audience, they are less effective. The use of subliminal signals such as book shelves lit in such a way that a joint between a shelf and an upright becomes a crucifix, can be more effective.

What is harder to gauge is the effect of media analysis of such use of symbolism.

One thing that is not discussed much, and which creates some confusion in the European mind, is the reversal in the US of the colours red and blue as indicators for socialism and conservatism.
