Response to RainCaster (Reply #10)

26. No, you don't. I have relatives well short of retirement who disprove that theory.

There's a kind of dark charisma to the idea that "we know the real deal, unlike those dopes who just go along with what they're told".

That can be very attractive to people who think "things just don't add up" by presenting things in a way that, on first encounter, does seem to explain things. If it stokes their biases and they don't have an inclination to gnaw on it for a while until they notice "that doesn't add up either", they're liable to swallow it whole.

Not exclusive to FOX, but it is the FOX business model.
