Journalists have insisted that John Oliver has inspired a new kind of journalism. They
argue that Oliver's show Last Week Tonight with John Oliver has inspired real-world action, a
phenomenon journalists have called the "John Oliver effect." Oliver, a comedian, refuses these
claims. This thesis is the result of in-depth research into journalists' claims through the lens of
agenda-setting. By conducting a qualitative content analysis, I evaluated the message
characteristics of framing devices used on Oliver's show, then compared those message
characteristics to the message characteristics and framing devices employed by legacy media.
Here’s what’s next.
