CNN and Yahoo FACT CHECK the Obama SNL skit

Okay, in the ultimate stupidity (and one more reason why it's a good thing that CNN is getting picketed next week), CNN actually FACT-CHECKED the Saturday Night Live skit spoofing Obama that contained a list of things he hasn't done. For pity's sake people!!

Presidents from Ford to the present have been spoofed, skewered, and otherwise lampooned on SNL. There are those who think that Chevy Chase's depictions of Ford may have affected his re-election chances. And how about Tina Fey's depiction of Sarah Palin more recently?? At least the Republicans have the grace to laugh at this stuff (like Sarah Palin's appearance on SNL) but how can any 'news' organization claim to be non-partisan when they do stuff like this?? And of course, CNN said that SNL's depictions of Palin and George W. Bush were spot on. Nothing to see here, no partisan politics in the CNN newsroom.....

Per The Bookworm Room, yahoo also did a fact check on the SNL skit. Guess I'm going to have to find yet another search engine.....

The only good thing is that it's soooooo blatant!
