Analysis / Bias
In review, IMAO typically uses a real news story and interjects humor and sarcasm into it. Most times this humor is at the expense of the left. A story example is as follows: Shocking New Study Shows That the Cure for Racism Is Global Warming. This humorous story sources the fictitious Seth Brundle from the movie, The Fly.
