Restoring Sanity Through Comic Relief: Parody Television Viewers and Political Outlook

Abstract | Word Stems | Keywords | Association | Citation | Similar Titles



Abstract:

The Daily Show and The Colbert Report regale viewers with satirical, witty, and humorous exposes` of the political world and news coverage. But they have also been criticized for creating cynicism and political disengagement. This study found parody news viewers are more politically knowledgeable, interested, active, and self-efficacious than viewers of CNN, Fox News Channel, MSNBC, or broadcast television news. Additionally, reliance on parody news shows does not lead to polarization or government distrust.
