How many times have you read a science-themed article from The Onion or watched a science-themed segment on The Daily Show (TDS) or The Colbert Report (CR) and remarked at how “spot on” they are? News satirists have the ability to break rules of typical reporting to reveal the truth about situations, and possibly contribute to a wider consumption of science because the humor of science-themed segments in particular make science accessible and enjoyable.
