  • Hi Gabe,

    Your mind-map was well organized and I really liked how you had so many interconnections rather than just the effects of political satire simply “branching out.” It really represented how messy and complicated politicians can get, especially when mixed with satire.

    I agreed with your bubble that said that political satire can blur the line between satire and reality. In this world of fake news and comedians making money off political satire, it can sometimes be hard to find that thin line between what is factual and what is embellished.

    I also really loved your thought about how some people may choose political satire over a reputable news source. It definitely is more entertaining and fun to watch, but sometimes this can misinform people– just like you mentioned. I would like to see you explain a bit more in depth how it can also engage people. I was a bit curious about that, are they engaged because they want to find the truth or is there another reason?

    Overall, nicely done on this mind-map! Have fun on your first retreat this weekend!
