Hillary Clinton in the News: Lessons Learned

(p.176) Conclusion
Hillary Clinton in the News

Shawn J. Parry-Giles

University of Illinois Press

This concluding chapter assesses what the verbal and visual news coverage of Hillary Clinton tells us about the gendered nation, political authenticity and character, and news framing of U.S. political women at the turn of the twenty-first century. Those who become routine fixtures in news stories can function as didactic character models to be admired and emulated, as well as chastised and even despised. Journalists (along with the aid of news writers and news producers) serve as some of the nation's most powerful biographers, contributing stories and pictures that make up the chapters of a political leader's life. Moreover, conceptions of authentic womanhood and authentic manhood in particular bring together ideological forces that can empower yet also bind the nation's political leaders, offering a gender baseline that fuses with other markers of political authenticity to define an individual leader.

Keywords:   gendered nation, political authenticity, news framing, U.S. political women, authentic womanhood, authentic manhood, gender baseline, political authenticity
