Totally weak: CNN reduced to fact-checking SNL

Can there be any more doubt about bias in the mainstream media? Wolf Blitzer and CNN devote an entire segment fretting about the factual accuracy of an SNL sketch and also manage to work in an unrelated and unflattering clip of Tina Fey’s impersonation of Sarah Palin. It’s pathetically hilarious to watch objective journalists struggle to come to the defense of the President against a single late-night comedy sketch. I wonder if any journalists had any concerns over Will Ferrell’s rendition of W (Hint: no).

I haven’t watched Saturday Night Live in a long time. Some things, like fine wine, get better with age. Other things, like room temperature hamburger, get worse. SNL is the latter. And by the way, Fred Armisen’s impersonation of Obama is just awful. Heads up from Hot Air on this one (They have the original sketch too).
