About the Lecture:
A 2014 study by the Brookings Institution noted that – as a news source – Americans trust The Daily Show more than MSNBC.
With the rise of satirical news both in print and on screen, journalists like Gustavo Arellano have made successful careers out of mocking the powerful, establishing a brand of news reporting buoyed by the public’s taste for satire. Is ironic, humorous, snarky and sarcastic now the best way to get your audience’s attention while covering serious subjects, or are newspapers like Arellano’s OC Weekly, Seattle’s The Stranger and France’s Charlie Hebdo going too far?
Gustavo Arellano is the editor of OC Weekly, an alternative newspaper in Orange County, California, author ofOrange County: A Personal History and Taco USA: How Mexican Food Conquered America, lecturer with the Chicana and Chicano Studies department at California State University, Fullerton, and a consulting producer on FOX’s animated show, Bordertown.
He writes “¡Ask a Mexican!,” a nationally syndicated column in which he answers any and all questions about America’s largest minority.
Gustavo is the recipient of awards ranging from the Association of Alternative Newsweeklies to the Los Angeles Press Club President’s Award to an Impacto Award from the National Hispanic Media Coalition, and was recognized by the California Latino Legislative Caucus with a 2008 Spirit Award for his “exceptional vision, creativity, and work ethic.” Gustavo is a lifelong resident of Orange County and is the proud son of two Mexican immigrants, one whom was illegal.
