Abstract

This study addresses the effectiveness of television satire in reflecting political life. It looks at the subject in a new way: the general public and those involved in politics have different perceptions about the ability of a Polònia parody to produce both emotional feelings and changes of opinion. Three methodological tools (a random survey, a focus group and interviews) were used to obtain data. It was concluded that those involved with politics feel that the programme's portrayal of political life is accurate. However, members of the general public do not feel that it increases their interest in politics or that it can provoke a change in their opinion.
