In Saara Sarma's article, "Collage: An Art Inspired Methodology for Studying Laughter in World Politics" the accidental and comedic representation of world politics is discussed. This author creates artistic collages to "respond to questions of knowledge production on the internet era by bringing forth memes and other internet parody images, which anyone can produce and circulate" (Sarma). Throughout her article she goes on to state that politics today are often represented through anecdotes because of the forms of media that people are using. She talks about the importance of modern media being used effectively in order for the "real" news to be given to society instead of false or comedic versions of stories. She states, " I think that if we want our work to be accessible to a wide audience, we need to work with issues and materials that are familiar in the everyday" (Sarma).
I completely agree with Saarma. In order for people to obtain correct information about what is going on in the world today, this knowledge must be offered to them in ways that they are interested in. Below is a quick video on the history of political satire in TV. Here we can see how popular TV shows throughout generations have altered political news through media.
