Analyzing the FAIL of 'Conservative' Political Satire

This is probably the best analysis of humor and why there is no conservative version of The Daily Show. Waiting for the Conservative Jon Stewart: A unified theory of why political satire is biased toward, and talk radio is biased against, liberals in America by Oliver Morrison is truly a worthwhile read. It explores theories of humor and the differences in the kinds off storytelling that work for liberals and conservatives. If you're a marketer and you tell stories, it's probably worth reading it for that reason alone.
