    The problem is that conservatives probably think the fake interview is genuine.

    The upside is, this humorist is now much more widely known.

    Embarrassed NY Times editors, promoted conservative humorist.

    Win, win, win.

    I get what you mean, but I don't think changing guard, policy, law and all is worth someone's cheap thrill. FWIW

One thing from your like I found as funny was that I only saw them expressing concern that righties would be fooled. I guess lefties know better.

    Like in construction- it's called " leave your feelings at the door " because you are there to do a job, if you do it, silent and quick to complete, no on will say a word. Mess up, talk to much, complain, and you may get an ear full.
    Thanks from MaryAnne

    The issue wasn't the video, so much as the fact that it was posted with no indication that it was satire. When Stephen Colbert puts together a fake interview, it's funny - because he broadcasts it on his satirical show, or posts it under the name of his satirical show.

    This video was posted by Conservative Review. They're not a satire page; they present themselves as serious purveyors of conservative news. That's why CNN, MSNBC, ... even Fox News don't post fake interviews.

    They wisely leave the satire to the satirists.
    Thanks from Friday13, Chief and MaryAnne
