“The 1998 Robert Smigel animated short film “Conspiracy Theory Rock”, part of a March 1998 “TV Funhouse” segment, has been removed from all subsequent airings of the Saturday Night Live episode where it originally appeared. Michaels claimed the edit was done because it “wasn’t funny”. The film is a scathing critique of corporate media ownership, including NBC’s ownership by General Electric/Westinghouse.”
It’s a rather well done piece of anti-propaganda that tells the truth about the consolidation of media, media censorship, war profiteering and election-engineering. It even mentions the JFK assassination… who believes the official story about that?

Here's a shot at a transcription:
It's a media-opoly.
The whole media's controlled by a few corporations thanks to de-regulation by the FCC.
You mean Disney, Fox, Westinghouse and good 'ol GE?
They own networks from CBS to CNBC.
They can use 'em to say whatever they please and put down the opinions of anyone who disagrees.
But what about PCBs (PCBs?) They come from electric powerplants built by Westinghouse and GE.
They can give you lots of cancer that will hurt your body!
But on network TV you rarely hear anything bad about the nuclear industry.
Like when Westinghouse was sued for fraud? Which time?
GE made defective bolts it was an unreported crime--and were boycotted for operating nuclear bomb plants just to squeeze a dime.
That's a footnote by the way. A footnote protects you from those who doubt what you say.
Now maybe the voices in my head will go away.
But the bigshots don't care, they're all sitting pretty thanks to corporate welfare.
They get billions in subsidies from the government. It's supposed to create jobs but that's not how its spent.
They use PAC's and soft money to support congressmen who will vote for weapons programs again and again.
And let them dump toxic waste where the young kids play
GE even made the bullets that shot JFK.
You contribute to this chain every time you buy a product sponsored on this show
That's what GE doesn't want you to know. So the next time...
Please stand by, please stand by, the reason is technical difficulty...supposedly...so if you see the "Please Stand By" you'll know its a part of GE's big lie.
Why'd they take Norm MacDonald away? 'Cause he made too many jokes about OJ.
Would Lorne Michael overrule? Now don't be cruel, he and Marion Barry went to the same high school!
