  1. Similarities between the articles
  2. Time Magazine's article
  3. The Economist's article

Ernesto "Che" Guevara's fortieth death anniversary was celebrated in October in various ways around the planet. This mythic twentieth century revolutionary figure is increasingly criticized, as the Cuban regime which protected its memory is weakening. Most newspapers notice this evolution but not all try and account for it. I have chosen, for this discussion, two articles from quality weekly newspapers, one from each side of the Atlantic. The first one was published in the American Time Magazine, in the October 9th issue. It is entitled "40 yrs. after, Che lives on". The other one, "A modern saint and sinner" is from the British magazine ?The Economist' issue of October 11th. An in-depth analysis of two articles treating the same subject is especially interesting since the difference in editorial line and information treatment appear more radically than ever.
