And Facebook "satire" sites.

The article unsurprisingly focuses on liberal confirmation bias. But it's a universal phenomenon.

Internet satire sites in general. A friend who had recently turned religious, back in the day, thought that an Onion article about Harry Potter stories leading children into Satan worship was factual, and wouldn't hear a word otherwise.

This also reminds me of stories about people thinking that satire statements from SNL were directly from Sarah Palin.
