It’s like conservative Always Sunny fans.

It’s like conservatives with [insert 99% of media they consume, excluding Fox “news”]

They thought Colbert wasn’t playing an absurd caricature of a right wing pundit when he was doing the Report

It is worth noting that the rapist Bill O'Reilly knew, because it was so blindly obviously a parody of him, and whatever else you might say of him he isn't outright stupid.

The interesting bit is Ol Rapey Bill has quotes about Jan 6th saying his Fox would never have downplayed or enabled it, and yet, he's now supporting Trump in 2024.

It's almost like the actual truth doesn't matter to them. Like they just want a comfortable lie that benefits them personally, some kind of "Truthiness" perhaps.

Any echo chamber can produce illusory truth effect. Repeated exposure to misinformation can result in a person failing to identify it as a lie, and begin to register it as fact and the lie gets amplified.

Except the only real echo chamber is the one between their ears.

It's like he's writing trumps speeches for him there!

They view the show as a documentary, not a comedy.

IASP is a pretty funny show. Even the most recent season was gold, covering inflation during covid.
