Giving credit where credit is due, SNL actually managed to make a funny political sketch that has a dog show up a roomful of Leftists. Let’s just say that, in this particular sketch, the humans do not come off looking very good (and that’s not just because their acting is pretty much what you’d expect from a high school’s 10th grade comedy night).
We tend to forget, but the big networks get to come to our TVs because they rent airwaves from the federal government. In other words, “we the People” are the landlords and the networks are the tenants.
Do you think this video violates the lease? (Serious content warning — I’d consider this not just defamatory, but semi-pornographic.)
Options if you think it does violate the public trust:
- Contact the FCC
- Contact NBC
- Contact your local NBC affiliate
- Boycott SNL advertisers
(And it really is amazing how much Jon Hamm looks like Brown in this sketch.)
