Media constructs

Interesting quote from the Democrats Senator Natasha Stott Despoja in this week's Australian Story on ABC TV:
I think a lot of people saw her shaped very early in this media construct. I know that from personal experience that once people determine a particular image for you, and the media determines that’s how you’re to be portrayed, not a lot of people, particularly early entrants to politics, have the power to influence or change that.

It plays interestingly in the context of my book and the behaviour of Australian journalists.
