Looking for a viewer’s guide to both cable news and to political satire shows? In this intriguing analysis of political media, Dannagal Goldthwaite Young delves into the strikingly different television content viewed by American liberals and conservatives. Liberals drink from a fountain of satire delivered by Jon Stewart and his descendants, she reports, while conservatives dine on a smorgasbord of outrage from Rush Limbaugh and Fox News. Young delves into the roots of both sides’ tastes, while also sampling scientific research that suggests a distinct brain physiology for each group.
