The Washington Post Features Trevor Potter's Colbert Report Appearances

June 3, 2014, The Washington Post

The Washington Post features Trevor Potter in relation to a study done by researchers at Annenberg Public Policy Center of the University of Pennsylvania.  The study found that viewers of The Colbert Report were far more knowledgeable about America's changing campaign finance law than those who didn't.  The article links to several of Mr. Potter's appearances on the show explaining campaign finance law and Super PACs.  Furthermore, it states that "watching The Colbert Report had a more significant effect than all other forms of news consumption. This effect was unique to campaign finance -- watching The Colbert Report did not seem to make viewers much smarter about politics writ large, just with money in politics."  For the full story, please visit The Washington Post's website.
