Dunning-Kruger effect: The Flipside with Michael Loftus

You might have head that the Dunning-Kruger effect was “stupid people aren’t smart enough to realize that they are stupid”. But in fact, the paper was titled Unskilled and Unaware of it: How difficulties in recognizing one’s own incompetence lead to inflated self assessments.

The first example was …humor. The clueless amateurs thought that they were just as funny as established comedians.

I was reminded of that when I saw a clip of a right wing attempt to mimic The Daily Show. The attempt is called The Flipside with Michael Loftus. Judge for yourself. :-)
