"Praise Jesus!" ©Eric Enright

The cover of today’s New York Post, boldly proclaiming “Praise Jesus!”, was originally in reference to Venezuelan baseball catcher Jesus Montero of the NY Yankees, who hit his first Major League home run the day before.

 

Out of context, however, I found it a very appropriate headline for this conservatively-biased and sensationalistic tabloid. I simply can’t imagine, for example, a context where the Post would run a headline such as “Praise Allah!” This page-dominating headline, in combination with the quotidian American flag banner, sends a clear message as to the true allegiances of the paper and its readership.

 

By eliminating excess content, I attempted to distill the real message being transmitted by today’s front page.
