Hubster Mel is completing a thesis examining ‘The Political Impact of “The Daily Show” and “The Colbert Report“‘, and is on the look out for people to participate in a survey as part of her research.
Thesis Statement: I will examine how ‘The Daily Show’ and ‘The Colbert Report’ are crossing the line between satirical observation and political action. Therefore I will analyze the different approaches of Jon Stewart and Stephen Colbert in terms of political coverage, the satirical framework of ‘The Daily Show’ and ‘The Colbert Report’, the evolution of the shows and their political importance. Additionally, I will conduct two case studies: Stephen Colbert’s Super PAC and Jon Stewart’s impact on ‘The 9/11 First Responders Bill’.
Since the audience plays an essential role in the shows’ success, I hope that as many viewers/fans as possible will fill out my survey.
The survey is completely anonymous and will take appox. 3-5 minutes to fill out: [Link]
