Abstract

Because of the unique character of the Hill-Thomas hearings, journalists were left without a stock political plot to render the proceedingsin familiar terms. Using narrative and rheotorical analyses, the study examines how newspaper journalists turned to so-called women's entertainment genres such as soap opera and melodrama to dramatize and ultimately depoliticize the hearings. The study identifies four recurring rheotorical themes - melodrama, eroticization, agon, and privatization- that served to frame Hill's allegations of sexual harassment against Thomas not in terms of social and political debate but in terms of drama.
