The news discourse generates meaning at two levels: 1. The micro level: the occurrence is constituted as event (conceptualized and narrativized). 2. The macro level: the present results from the totality of events. The present's cohesion depends on its being intelligible, which in turn depends on the rhythm (and time) and on the dramatic quality of its representation. We can say that the existence of the present presupposes a certain notion of the present: the present as a dimension essentially changeable, submitted to a rapid transformation.

This happens because underneath this glorification of the signature, instead of the analysis of the discursive device called subject-translator, what is at work in this kind of approach is the myth of "language" (both the one used in the "original" text and the one used for the translation) as a mere vehicle, as an empty form to be filled with contents. The history of translation—where one can see how the very concept of translation is historical—uncovers this myth. Henry Meschonnic has shown how, in European culture and in the Near East, paraphrasing preceded translation.
