Regular price 276,12 kr
This book provides the first comprehensive introduction to satirical fake news with its historical background in satire and the genre's relation to contemporary media image and political debate. With a series of analyzes of, among others, RokokoPosten, Den Korte Radioavis and The Daily Show, the effect and prevalence of the genre in national and international media is shown from rhetorical, narratological as well as fictionality, media and genre theoretical angles.

The book is about fake news in the satirical form, but through this work an understanding is also created of how news is put together and why we so easily believe it. An investigation of satirical fake news thus also becomes an investigation of some of the journalistic tools and mechanisms that enable the creation of the lying form of fake news.
