Sometimes, the Narrative Is Satirical
Some narratives are already tragicomedies, at which point we might ask what's the point of satire. Recent examples include The Onion's most honest article yet, and the fact that the so-called "Brights" fell for a post on a parody site which paints the Vatican in a bad light. See, this latter matches the narrative which the supposed "Brights" desire, so it must be true. All that is gold does not glitter, nor apparently does all which is bright actually offer light.
