Putin according to the online media…

Who is Vladimir Putin according to the online media? Ex Prime-Minister? President? Macho? Zar?

A short analysis of the metaphors and other stylistic choices that are used by the online journalists  across languages to refer to Vladimir Vladimirovich Putin – newly elected president of the Russian Federation.  For the analysis I considered only headlines from online news websites in several european languages and Russian before the Presidential Elections on 4 March 2012 and one day after it.  The headlines used for the analysis came from the results of the advanced search(keyword Putin) from the following web-site: http://emm.newsbrief.eu/NewsBrief/clusteredition/en/latest.html


During the first hours after the elections on the 5th of March something has changed. Or is it just me?
