People who believe the Big Lie are not victims

Saying they have been victimized by Fox is nonsense. They weren’t strapped in a chair and forced to watch it. They could find out the truth if they wanted to.

My reaction to this from CNN’s Reliable Sources newsletter:

Donie writes: “I think some on the left might take comfort in watching an interview like that. Some might feel a sense of superiority. But I think our colleague Pamela Brown put it best this weekend when we rolled tape of that interview and she said that the Wards were ‘victims of misinformation.’ Yes, there are many biases and prejudices and all sorts of reasons that contribute to people wanting to believe the Big Lie. But the reality is a lot of people ARE victims, so to speak, of a poisoned info-universe.
