Strange Bedfellows: How Late Night Comedy Turns Democracy into a Joke

Strange Bedfellows: How Late-Night Comedy Turns Democracy into a Joke by Russell L. Peterson
PN 1992.8 .C66 P48 2008

“This book takes an insightful look at the increasingly complex media landscape, where “legitimate” cable and network journalists, cable-news pundits, and TV comedians all fall under the same category of “infotainment” and political leaders and celebrities alike are both ridiculed and revered. He also raises the question whether late-night comedians have a moral role to play as individuals who reach a mass audience with their jibes. Especially timely now that the election season is underway.”
