State-Controlled Media Cries Foul Over SNL Skit

CNN, a division of the State-Controlled media, is crying foul over SNL’s recent skit making fun of Obama for doing “Jack” and “Squat” in the first 9 months of his Presidency.  CNN’s report questioned whether the satire was “fair” and “accurate”, challenging some of the assertions made in the sketch, and going so far as to say the sketch was “not fair” and “not true”, They also expressed concern that people would become misinformed because some people get their news from SNL.  They then compared the sketch to a more “dead-on” satire of…you guessed it, Tina Fey’s Sarah Palin (did anyone fact-check the “I can see Russia from my house” line, or Bush’s use of the word “strategery”?)

This proves two things.  First, the state-controlled media is so in the tank for Obama that they are fact-checking a comedy show that has a history of satirizing Presidents.  Can someone tell me which Presidential portrayal by SNL in the last 35 years was completely fair and accurate?  Second, the Obama Administration (as evinced by their propaganda wing in the State-Controlled media) and liberals in general have absolutely no sense of humor.  I enjoyed Tina Fey’s Palin skits, and Will Ferrell’s Bush skits as much as anyone.  Sometimes they were over the top, but in general they were funny, picked up on some character traits or perceived character traits and accentuated them, but always making for good comedy.  The SNL impersonations are not meant to be accurate portrayals, but rather caricature.  The skit was funny and resonated, which is probably why the White House has unleashed the State-Run media to rush to dear leader’s defense.

Update: Yahoo! News has also run a fact check.  How long before the other news/media outlets chime in?
