The reason it only aired once is because GE owned NBC.

"Well, that was awkward".....muttered Joseph Goebbels and Mr Murdoch et al.

That was very creative who ever was responsible for putting that together.

Robert Smigel mainly. The puppeteer behind Triumph the Insult Comic Dog, and general comedic mastermind.

Re-read my response to your comment here on page 3 and let's not go through this again - we shall agree to disagree.

Did ya miss all the stuff going on in Iraq ?

ISIS,China, and all that ?

The US pretty much got 'kicked' out.

Oh yeah one more thing BP.


True we aren't going to agree.

The whole media's controlled by a few corporations thanks to de-regulation by the FCC.

Actually, the regulations made the mega corps in the first place, blaming deregulation is naïve. Deregulation is always different regulation, like free trade agreements always have thousands of rules.

Quick fix socialistic pandering, or maybe personal taste passed off as logic.

Reinforces government monopoly as the only conceivable solution.

The point of that newspaper front page was to say, using well known oil and gas company logos, that we're heading to Iraq and surrounding area to make money from oil.
It was a clever dig, using said logos.

It was printed it Jan '03.

I didnt think it was very funny either and I wold probably have cenceled it too, If I was producer at SNL.
Just cause something is true dont make it funny, I mean african babies die in the dirt each day just cause their moms are too ho**y to say no to sex and no to abortion, and decides to have the baby then just discard it into the gutter? this literally happens all over the continent in the poorest of the poorest of villages. (Which is of course all men have a natural instinct to both hate and love women - their inability to say no to sex, and then their inability to say to no to abortion - and rather let the baby crawl and in the dirt and die there instead. Yay! way to go woman!) I mean every day say that they arent ready to be a dad, right? Happens all the time. And what to we get? booo:ed. But when women then of course are very ready, yeah suure, and we see what happens.. kids either grow up robbing and murdering people cause the mom indeed wasnt ready, or worse, in some places of africa, babys actually die in the dirt.
Why? cause women must be right, men cant be right can they? when they say "listen we are not ready to have a baby" and women go all mad, when WE ARE RIGHT.
Every man who sais they arent ready - dont have the freakin baby ! every dad who DOESNt say that - look what happens. Great families, great upbringing, born freedom fighters.
darn women, no wonder the world is in such a up and down society

its not that funy tbh, neither is this.
Dont quite understand why they had to make something "funny" about such things.
By the way, everything said in this little cartoon is true, public knowledge, and everyone knows who owns who already.
Its just not funny.
I dont think there is anyone out there who doesnt know that the top 1% owns the 99% of the worlds wealth, and the top 1% of the top 1% control the entire world.
I mean, its been common knowledge since 1776.

Here we go again of another ,, What does this Remind's me of ..

This Commercial is all truth .. it Aired only from a few Stations
that dared to Broadcast it ..


then the Commercial was Banned afterward .
then It was Aired the Reason it was Banned.

Networks ban W.R. Grace's Deficit Trials (1986)

Yet 2 Decades Later in the Same Vision, same Atmosphere
a Attempt putting out the same kind of warning ...

Chinese Professor : Citizens Against Government Waste

Here from CBS ..

here is a Link although it seem there a bit of a Problem showing the article I wonder why ?


Getting Your Ad Banned to Bring the

A Rhetorical Analysis of an
Ad on the US National Debt

The “Chinese Professor” ad, which features a chilling
look at one potential future scenario if America continues
on its current destructive fiscal trajectory, is a 2010
homage to “The Deficit Trials,” a 1986 ad that was
produced by W.R. Grace & Co. For those who were able
to view it, the ad caused a sensation; it was considered so
controversial at the time that the networks refused to run
J. Peter Grace, CAGW’s co-founder and the
chairman of President Ronald Reagan’s Private Sector
Survey on Cost Control (the Grace Commission), was
alarmed about what the debt would do to future
generations. The national debt was $2 trillion in 1986,
when “The Deficit Trials” ad was denied broadcast time;
today the debt stands at $14 trillion and is projected to
reach 140 percent of GDP in two decades, the time in
which the CAGW ad is set.
Notice how a reference is made to another ad that criticized the
national debt, which dates back to 1986 and which was banned
as well. This may indicate that the CAGW was anticipating that
the ad would be banned, hoping to get a lot of free publicity that
way. Many newspapers reported the banning and many gave
their readers links to the Internet sites where the ad could be
seen. The rhetorical position of the CAGW in the case of a
banning is very comfortable; they can simply say: “See how the
established media do not want to hear the truth”.
Notice also that the CAGW describes the discourse world of
Beijing 2030 as “a potential future scenario”.

Jude, seeing the ending of that cartoon, did you notice the black hole? It goes together with my research on the Jezebel Spirit, the illuminati and the order of the BLACK SUN.

It also connects with cern.

Did you notice the sun being black?

I know this may sound crazy, but if you have an open mind, (and I know you do), you may want to take a look at this documentary.

I know you are constantly looking for new leads. Thought I'd direct you here:

It is long, but it goes hand to hand with what I have been looking into.

Thank you for posting the cartoon.

In a related topic question.

Who was the man (or woman) that created the video? And is he/she still alive?

" 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!"

Polychlorinated biphenyls (PCBs) rising in the steam of a power plant cooling tower?? Gimmie a break. That's beyond kitsch into the realm of the don't-give-a-f*ck-inyerface-stupid. Actually for decades PCBs replaced highly flammable oil in transformers, eliminating a major cause of fires (especially rural lightning strikes transformer wildfires). Both toxicity and fire suppression advantage was known to all including environmentalists and for so-called "confined use", where it was not expected to leak, was considered to be an acceptable trade-off for years. There is nothing inherently corporate or evil about this.

Then along with carbon tetrachloride used by dry cleaners, PCBs were discovered to be more carcinogenic and long lived than previously thought. Rusty drums in the yard behind dry cleaners, and power company transformer yards became EPA toxic sites, and some of the spillage had made its way into ground water. For transformers we're back to using flammable oil, and dry cleaners use different (but generally less effective) solvents. Part of the learning curve. There never was an 'evil' corporate reason to use PCBs unless you are a pyromaniac.

"But on network TV you rarely hear anything bad about the nuclear industry. "

Because in terms of actual risk or incident -- except for the never ending scream of anti-nuke hysteria which is a danger to us all as a modern civilization -- there had been nothing bad to report since Three Mile Island. Even that was a 'win' because despite the damage containment worked and releases were small. Attacking GE/Westinghouse for building the safest and most reliable power plants is, again, don't-give-a-f*ck-inyerface-stupid.

The squid Mickey Mouse was cute and all, but I demand more truthful substance in my conspiracy videos, even the funny ones.

That's a well made cartoon, the singing is awful but effective. But they are right its not funny for SNL, more a commentary. I know that 30 rock use to take the mickey out of NBC and GE who they worked for in they scripts. They never got censured for it.
