MSM Factchecking SNL's Comedy Skit?!
This weekend "Saturday Night Live" opened with Fred Armisen as President Obama, delivering an address from the Oval Office. Noting up front that he'd failed to secure the 2016 Olympic Games for Chicago, Armisen's Obama said it was just further proof that his detractors' fears are unfounded: How could he transform the country into something resembling the former Soviet Union or Nazi Germany when he's failed to accomplish anything at all? "When you look at my record," he said, "it's very clear what I've done so far, and that is nothing."
But are SNL's accusations of Obama being a do-nothing president accurate? Let's run down the list of the nine promises SNL lampooned President Obama for doing "nothing" on to see where he actually stands.
Bookworm factchecks this yahoo's "fact"check. The SNL skit is pretty spot-on; but more importantly: IT'S A COMEDY SKIT!!!! HELLO?!?!
As Curt asks,
Did they fact check the Palin skits?
Have they fact checked ANY snl skits?
But when they attack their messiah they suddenly decide to fact check a comedy show.
CNN covering this is simply disgraceful and embarrassing. Especially in light of never giving such attention to all the latenight comedy regarding President Bush, and whether or not the comedy had any veracity to stand on. Just amazing how clueless media elites are at failing to see themselves in the mirror.
