Blogs > In The Mix

Reporter Shaun Byron and Video Editor Andrew DuPont sound-off on whatever is on their minds, from politics to pop-culture, from movies to the main stream media. Local, national, world-wide? If it's in the media mix, these two are sure to have an opinion on it.

CNN is now fact-checking satire?

It must be hard to fill 24 hours of programming, but CNN is now dedicating their time to fact-checking.... Saturday Night Live?

Normally, I get the impression that conservatives are the ones that can't take a joke, but in this case, CNN has really made liberals seem like thin-skinned whiners. Come on guys, I know SNL isn't funny most of the time, but you have to realize they are still in the business of satire. You didn't see fact-checks on Tina Fey's Palin impressions or any of Will Ferrell's Bush spoofs, so why start now? If CNN was trying to dissuade anyone of the persistent liberal media rumors... this didn't help.

There just has to be something more important they can be doing with their time...

...okay, maybe not.

I think this is ridiculous.

The headline for this one should have been: "CNN Fact Checks SNL on Slow News Day"

Making fun of America's president is a time honored tradition of SNL. If America can't count on her president she can at least count on SNL to make fun of him for it.

And if this statement is really true: "Saturday Night Live is a very important factor in how people get information about American politics," where was CNN to fact check THIS sketch?

Was Enron REALLY part of his Axis of evil? AND the economy? And Dick Cheney?
