While much of the media has been pretty clearly "in the tank" for Obama (I've documented several instances), Saturday Night Live has been a show that has occasionally bucked the trend.
During the Hillary/Obama fight in the primary, SNL was the first to land any kind of hit on Obama, by doing a skit about a Hillary and Obama debate, in which Hillary was asked obscure foreign policy questions and Obama was asked if he wanted a pillow. This struck something for people, and may have resulted in, the next week, the first time the press actually tried to question Obama about something difficult to prove SNL wrong -- his Tony Rezko connection, which caused Obama to flee a press conference:
After this, Obama refused to meet with the press for nine days.
I wanted to link to the SNL skit that started all that...but it's gone. Can't find it on YouTube or NBC's site (if you can, let me know!)
This week, SNL did a skit including the Democrats involvement in the Fannie/Freddie stuff...and it's been pulled from YouTube and NBC's site.
However, you can see it here.
If that video is pulled, Michelle Malkin has the transcript and screenshots here (you don't know how much it pains me to link to her...Malkin is someone I try to avoid, but in this case she's got the info, so...)
I don't know why these videos have been pulled. Plenty of other SNL videos are available, especially on NBC's site (no doubt you've seen the Tina Fey as Hillary skits that manage to remain available (I particularly like the Hillary portrayal in that one...)
Whatever the reason, check em out.
