“Manifest Destiny” in the Guise of Globalization: The New York Times on American Leadership During the Bush Era

Abstract | Word Stems | Keywords | Association | Citation | Similar Titles



Abstract:

This paper examines the discursive construction of the New York Times (NYT) during the Bush administration on the role of American leadership in the post-Cold War era. America’s world leadership has been renewed in the globalizing context, in succession from the ideology of “manifest destiny” and “American exceptionalism.” We show how the NYT editorially justified the U.S.’s “world responsibility” on moral and a priori grounds. The U.S. and its western allies were contrasted with the “evil other.” Western allies were nevertheless depicted not as courageous or virtuous as the U.S. in defending the world order. The NYT was, however, sharply critical of President Bush for failing to uphold American credibility and leadership. This means that the liberal U.S. media may take the state’s policy to task but do not question the core assumptions of national interest.
