TALK – It’s fun but is it effective: Learning from, appreciation of, agenda setting with, and persuasion by political satire.

Political satire is an increasingly popular media format and many questions rose about whether and how this can affect public opinion. This research talk presents work on the format of political satire and looks at several effects it may have. It first looks at the information function of political satire investigated through a panel survey. Then it presents the findings of an experimental study that looked into the appreciation of and persuasion by political satire. Finally, one example of political and public agenda setting is presented. Altogether, the presentation thus covers several aspects of the consequences that political satire may have.
