Did you know he was joking?

According to a study many Conservatives didn't know Stephen Colbert is joking and portraying a character on his show The Colbert Report.

I realized that many must not know he is joking when he was featured at the White House Correspondants dinner.

Did you know? Why do you think Conservatives were more likely to believe he only pretends to be joking and actually means what he says?

  • Akin, the story has a link to a university study. I don't usually read HuffPo but a friend showed me the article and I thought it was funny.
