In an age of riot and revolution the cynical observers’ growing dissatisfaction with the government and media manifests itself through many forms in everyday life. We see political satire and activism dispersed through various internet platforms, in print, on the streets, and even in mainstream media. Political satire is a necessary time-honored tradition that inherently abandons formality and censorship. USA Today explores a captivating slice of this fluctuating medium, showcasing sarcastic social commentary in contemporary art.
