Is it me, or did this seem a little thin on actually answering its titular premise? Most of the article was spent comparing how British and American satire attempts are different, rather than providing any interesting cultural commentary or case studies attempting to explain why.
Edit: Kind of just me, I missed a couple of key paragraphs in the middle whilst scrolling on my phone. My bad. I still believe it could've sought to be more insightful and informative than it was. It was a bit trite overall.
