Interview: Mo Rocca speaks at UVM

Print More

When seniors at the University of Vermont were asked to choose a guest for their third annual Speakers Series on Friday evening, they picked a former senior political correspondent from a well-known news organization. So they’re in for a very funny evening.

That’s because the former senior political correspondent is Mo Rocca, and the well-known news organization he hails from is the Daily Show, a fake news program on cable TV’s Comedy Central that does cover real current events, but refuses to do so seriously. Mo Rocca is also a frequent panelist on NPR’s weekend quiz show “Wait, Wait Don’t tell Me.” Mitch Wertlieb talks with Rocca about fake news coverage and art the of satire.
