Politics in “Fakt,” a fact in politics
The goal of the article is to depict the implicit and explicit linguistic structures, which the reader of “Fakt” (Polish daily tabloid) uses to reconstruct the world of politics. Among all there are listed rhetorical figures, specifically chosen vocabulary and other linguistic schemes which describe or create the reality. At the same time they deform it. Moreover, the author refers to the term ‘factoid.’ The article is based on press headlines’ analysis. The headlines where published in “Opinion” and “Politics” sections of “Fakt” in September 2005 and October 2007. During those months parliamentary elections were held in Poland.
