Description: Briefing with Jeff Gottfried, Research Associate, Pew Research Center and Martha Grove, Archivist, U.S. National Archives and Matt Wuerker, Cartoonist, POLITICO at Washington Foreign Press Center on November 17, 2015. A transcript is available at http://fpc.state.gov/249606.htm.nBACKGROUND: This just in: an American satirist did a better job teaching viewers about campaign finance than other new sources – including CNN, Fox and MSNBC. That’s according to a report out of the University of Pennsylvania’s Annenberg Public Policy Center titled “Stephen Colbert’s Civics Lesson: Or, how a TV humorist taught America about campaign finance.” So, if satire can increase public knowledge, can it impact election outcomes, too? Join us as a panel of experts discusses America’s affinity for satire, its role in our politics and its potential impact on the 2016 presidential election.
