I decided to take one the questions from this presentation to blog about.Do you think that the youth of American today has the ability to separate what is fact and what is fantasy from shows such as The Daily Show? I think this is a hard question to answer because The Daily Show or The Colbert Report really gives vital facts but it is in a satirical matter. Obviously the younger the viewer, the harder it may be for the facts and fantasy to be separated. If the viewer is able to separate the fact from fantasy (which I believe many can do) they will be able to gain vital political information. I think a bigger struggle with these programs is being able to understand the satire and to realize that these men are highly opinionated. The satire can easily cause someone to form opinions without identifying what their own opinions are. These programs can definitely sway the youth’s opinions of politics.
