Mark Boukes examines if and how soft news and infotainment play a role in shaping public opinion. He investigates the effects on political attitude formation of the three most prominent entertainment-oriented styles of political television coverage: human interest framing that is used to make news coverage more personal; opinionated news that explicitly includes the opinions of the reporting journalists; and political satire, the most prominent entertainment genre that adopted politics.
