Was reading the paper this morning and something that my eyes have probably slid over for years, suddenly jumped out for me.
It was a story about the drug Avastin which had been taken off the market. The first words of the story were “The Obama Administration today revoked . . . “
Until recent years (10? 15? I don’t know), that story would have led with “The Food and Drug Administration today revoked . . . “
I think it makes a difference. An FDA story is by its nature not very political. But use the name of the President in its place, and that story immediately takes on political overtones.
