The fact that people treat SNL and The Daily Show as news pretty much sums up where the general direction of the country is....swirling down the toilet bowl.
And note that they said "SNL is an important factor in how many people get their information around the world..." and not about the world. Something that adds a nice extra touch of ignorance to the whole thing implying that either the US is the whole world or that the whole world actually cares or is aware of SNL existence.
Like if the entire world be stupid enough to consider a crappy show like SNL as news source, damn!
And people still wonder why aliens don't make contact...

I say lets end the wars who's with me on that. Even if you like Obama do you still hate war or is war good now if Obama is President.

Obviosuly it's a slow news day at CNN when they're running stories to fact check a comedy/parody. At least with SNL it's masked by being in a show that most people don't find funny enough to watch anymore. I think someone should tell them about The Daily Show. They make presidential jokes all the time and people actually watch that show.

You act as if "spending most of the show attacking Republicans" is merely a political bias and don't, apparently, even consider that it's due to the divisive and destructive politics of Republicans.
Not understanding that is being out of touch with reality. In my opinion

Wow. I really hate to say it but you are absolutely right. SNL has mocked every president since it began. For 34 years, they did it without any 'news' channels feeling the need to correct them. To do it now sticks out like a sore thumb.
