9780230104662: America According to Colbert: Satire as Public Pedagogy (Education, Politics and Public Life)

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? America According to Colbert: Satire as Public Pedagogy 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, America According to Colbert 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.

Product Description:

America According to Colbert: Satire as Public Pedagogy post 9/11 argues that, in contrast to the anti-intellectualism, the sensationalism, and the punditry that tend to govern most mass media today, Stephen Colbert's program offers his audience the opportunity to understand the context through which most news is reported and to be critical of it.

About the Author:
