There is some confusion, especially in media, among the various qualities in which a constitutionalist can speak: personally, as a politician or expressing his political opinion, and only technically, as a constitutionalist tout court. Although, of course, these categories are not always separated. A journalist needs to have knowledge of constitutional law in order to deconstruct: finding eventual personal or political ideas disguised under a technical discourse. The same filter should be used, "mutatis mutandis", to other "technical actors" on the stage of media.
