The first major study of mock-documentary - one of a number of screen forms that play with the assumed boundaries between 'fact' and 'fiction'. Examines mock-documentary through the specific relationship which the form has with documentary. Part of a wider discussion of the increasingly fragile association between factual codes and conventions and the discourses which underpin the documentary genre. Opens out this relatively new media form and by doing so throws light on the status of the documentary itself.

Smith described the results of a variety of tests showing that listeners perceived speakers to be less authentic when they were told that the speakers were repeating themselves. When that assumption is revealed to be false, we penalize the speaker. This is true, the authors found, even in contexts where it makes no sense to expect speakers not to repeat themselves, such as listening to a tour guide or a stand-up comic.

This finding helps make sense of the Obama-Trump paradox.

Obama and Trump both have an uncommon ability to avoid that pitfall—even if they do so in very different ways. As a candidate and as president, Obama had the gift of seeming unrehearsed.

Despite her obvious qualifications, she was hamstrung as a presidential candidate by an inability to sound like a normal person when addressing large audiences. Her performances in the major televised contexts in which most Americans saw her in were generally robotic and awkward—filled with strange pauses and painfully delivered jokes, drained of spontaneity.

That, as much as anything, explains why voters were so primed to entertain questions about her authenticity and trustworthiness. Clinton, to be sure, was also held to unfair standards because of her sex.

Authenticity Just Means Faking It Well

But her problem was a variation of the same one that male candidates such as Al Gore and John Kerry faced before her. Trump achieves authenticity in a more unusual way. First, of course, he brazenly violates all kinds of taboos—against racism, sexism, authoritarianism, and so on.
