Satire is a complex genre to pin down, but it is generally thought of as the use of irony or sarcasm in order to pour scorn on something or another, often politics.

Satire breaks down the walls of serious events or people in the media and humiliates them through sarcasm and wit. It is basically a form of high brow bullying.
