I get the porn comparison. I've been saying for years that you can specifically tell how fucked up the minds of Fox's audience are by the fact that Fox is what they get off on.
And then the addiction comparison: When Fox's lies become just a mellow buzz that doesn't jolt the dopamine production in their hind-brains any more, then it's off to the stronger poisons of Breitbart and the newly mainstreamed Alex Jones for a truly thrilling hit of something that will scramble the workings of logic and perception and give them that old sensation of transgression they used to love so much before it became impolite to say nigger in public.
I only know one guy who watches that crap, and he's on some serious hard drugs, so the rest of the people who know him just kinda figure it must be a side effect of the meth...

Thanks again for the podcast, and I hope your Thanksgiving was good.

The porn addicts around my holiday table are all solidly middle-/upper-middle class, white, college educated, working professional/securely retired living in culturally/socially homogenous affluent suburbs/exburbs of the Midwest.

They sound just like, sometimes worse, than any hypothetical double-wide dweller from Sisterfuck, Arkansas.

That is why for me, it is very important we remember the Trumpshirts are wealthier and more educated than the monumental dumb stupid Republican talking points/FoxNews would naturally leads one to conclude.

And, in my opinion, the media, and Bothsider shills, are specifically designed to protect and comfort this very slice of the Republican base that sits around me on Thanksgiving.
