Joanna Doona and Tommy Bruhn explores political controversy and satire

Our colleagues Joanna Doona of Media and communication studies and Tommy Bruhn from Rhetoric has a new journal article out, in open access, in Javnost.
The article presents a case study on Swedish news satire show "Svenska nyheter" and the controversy it stirred after launching the web tool Skolko in 2018; looking both at the launch and the reactions it stirred among various interested parties - how does participation work when humour and "seriousness" clash?
