In a time when increasing numbers of people are tuning out the nightly news and media consumption is falling, the late-night comedians have become some of the most important newscasters in the country. From Cronkite to Colbertexplains why. It examines an historical path that begins at the height of the network age with Walter Cronkite and Edward R. Murrow, when the evening news was considered the authoritative record of the day's events and forged our assumptions about what 'the news' is, or should be. The book then winds its way through the breakdown of that paradigm of 'real' news and into its reinvention in the unlikely form of such popularized shows as The Daily Showand The Colbert Report. From Cronkite to Colbertmakes the case that rather than 'fake news,' those shows should be understood as a new kind of journalism, one that has the potential to save the news and reinvigorate the conversation of democracy in today's society.

Satirical TV has become mandatory viewing for citizens wishing to make sense of the bizarre contemporary state of political life. Shifts in industry economics and audience tastes have re-made television comedy, once considered a wasteland of escapist humor, into what is arguably the most popular source of political critique. From fake news and pundit shows to animated sitcoms and mash-up videos, satire has become an important avenue for processing politics in informative and entertaining ways, and satire TV is now its own thriving, viable television genre. Satire TV examines what happens when comedy becomes political, and politics become funny. A series of original essays focus on a range of programs, from The Daily Show to South Park, Da Ali G Show to The Colbert Report, The Boondocks to Saturday Night Live, Lil’ Bush to Chappelle’s Show, along with Internet D.I.Y. satire and essays on British and Canadian satire. They all offer insights into what today’s class of satire tells us about the current state of politics, of television, of citizenship, all the while suggesting what satire adds to the political realm that news and documentaries cannot.

Is the comedy of Stephen Colbert simply fun or is it powerful political satire? Does it entertain viewers or does it empower them? Or does it teach us that in today's media-saturated world those binaries make no sense? Colbert's America claims that Colbert's satire fosters critical thinking about social issues, encourages active citizenship, and entertains the viewer - all at the same time. The first book to cover the various themes and features of The Colbert Report, Colbert's America offers readers insight into the powerful ways that Colbert's comedy challenges the cult of ignorance that has threatened meaningful public debate and social dialogue since 9/11.

Waren politische Akteure früher primär das Objekt kritischer Spitzen in Satire und Komik, so sind sie gegenwärtig zunehmend als aktive Subjekte daran beteiligt. In den USA ist das schon länger der Fall und der Präsidentschaftswahlkampf 2016 zeigte, dass satirische Interviews dort zum festen Bestandteil der kommunikativen Infrastruktur geworden sind. In Deutschland agiert man noch etwas zurückhaltender, wobei der Bundestagswahlkampf 2013 einen ersten Höhepunkt der Beteiligung bildete. Politische Akteure suchen vor allem die Chance, in komischer Modulation das positive Image eines humorvollen Menschen aufzubauen, der unterhaltsam ist und über sich selbst lachen kann. Gleichzeitig setzen sie sich dabei jedoch einem hohen Risiko aus. Sie treten in Interaktion mit erfahrenen und oft kritisch ausgerichteten Medienakteuren, deren Komikgebrauch einer eigenen Unterhaltungslogik folgt. Dies birgt für Politiker die Gefahr von Unberechenbarkeit, im Fall ungeschickten Agierens sogar die Gefahr, albern, lächerlich und unseriös zu wirken. Der Band präsentiert die Ergebnisse eines empirischen Forschungsprojektes, das den Einsatz von Komik durch politische und mediale Akteure vor der Kamera thematisiert. Ein Schwerpunkt der Untersuchung gilt auch der Aneignung solcher Präsentationen durch die Fernsehzuschauer: Haben die Auftritte tatsächlich einen Einfluss auf die Wähler?

Media Research Methods: Understanding Metric and Interpretive Approaches brings the insights of a senior theorist, methodologist, and critic to the classroom. Departing from the methods recipe approach, the text explains the reasons behind the methods and makes the connections to theory and knowledge production. Written in a conversational style, the book engages students and appeals to them as media consumers and users of research. The book takes the reader through each step of the research process, outlining the procedures, differences, strengths and limitations of metric, interpretive and the newer hybrid approaches. The text lays down a strong foundation in empirical research and problem solving, addressing metric topics of hypotheses, sampling, statistics, survey and experimental protocols and interpretive topics of textual analysis, coding, critical engagement and ethnography. A special chapter at the end of the book is a helpful guide for those readers who aspire to a research and analysis career.

In recent years, the US fake news program The Daily Show with Jon Stewart has become a surprisingly important source of information, conversation, and commentary about public affairs. Perhaps more surprisingly, so-called 'fake news' is now a truly global phenomenon, with various forms of news parody and political satire programming appearing throughout the world. This collection of innovative chapters takes a close and critical look at global news parody from a wide range of countries including the USA and the UK, Italy and France, Hungary and Romania, Israel and Palestine, Iran and India, Australia, Germany, and Denmark. Traversing a range of national cultures, political systems, and programming forms, News Parody and Political Satire Across the Globe offers insight into the central and perhaps controversial role that news parody has come to play in the world, and explores the multiple forces that enable and constrain its performance. It will help readers to better understand the intersections of journalism, politics, and comedy as they take shape across the globe in a variety of political and media systems. This book was originally published as a special issue of the journal Popular Communication.

H. G. Wells schuf 1898 mit dem ›Krieg der Welten‹ den ersten Roman einer interplanetarischen Invasion, der das Vorbild zahlloser Marsmenschen-Märchen wurde. Orson Welles produzierte 1938 nach diesem SF-Klassiker das berühmteste Hörspiel aller Zeiten: obwohl als Hörspiel angekündigt, brach Panik aus, die Menschen verließen fluchtartig die Städte, weinten, beteten und glaubten an das Ende der Welt.

Humor, both ubiquitous and contextual, is a very specific and thus fragile element of the expression of human thought. In this volume, Peter L. Berger examines the nature of the comical and its relationship to other human experiences. Initially published in 1997, the second edition includes a new preface, including observations by Berger about the relationship between modernity and humor.
