they are political gods in comparison to the right wing political commentators we find on Fox etc.. Pandering to an easy audience? Left wing people? Again, when surrounded by right wing bullshit people will enjoy a left perspective.
But if people want a liberal perspective then they can watch literally any new program other than fox news. People always bitch that Fox is right wing but what’s wrong with that if the left has NBC, CBS, ABC, Cnn, Msnbc, Cnbc? My problem is that these comedy shows ignore facts and context purely for shock and laughs.
