Umberto Eco, Meet Samuel Kernell

- November 26, 2007

Umberto Eco, 2007: “Media populism means appealing to people directly through media. A politician who can master the media can shape political affairs outside of parliament and even eliminate the mediation of parliament.”

Samuel Kernell, 1986: “I call the approach to presidential leadership that has come into vogue at the White House ‘going public.’ It is a strategy whereby a president promotes himself and his policies in Washington by appealing to the American public for support.”
