Too hot for YouTube! NBC's Palin 'incest' video yanked
WND ^ | 9-22-08 | Joe Kovacs

Posted on 09/22/2008 8:09:36 PM PDT by hope

YouTube has pulled from its website a video of a "Saturday Night Live" skit featuring characters portraying New York Times reporters investigating whether Todd Palin was having sex with the couple's own daughters after NBC expressed a claim of copyright, even though a wide range of other "SNL" clips remain available.

Good.

Now yank the entire show off the air.

They are all terrible people.

NBC knows they screwed up. The fallout is happening. Time to go for the jugular with this dispicable network.

An interesting dynamic may be developing with Gov Palin. She is drawing incredibly large crowds and developing a following independent of the MSM. They are going around the MSM like no other candidate I can recall. They don't need the media as much as the media needs them. Access to these candidates means ratings. NBC, CNN and ABC have already ensured a more limited access to Palin and McCain. I'll be interested to see if the other outlets chose profits over partisanship and agree to reasonable sitdowns.

Not really news considering NBC pulls all of their video that’s ran on other sites. If you see any of their video on other sites it’s because NBC missed it.

Palin's been getting some fair treatment from Entertainment Tonight and Rachel Ray lately.

Granted, they mostly talk about clothes and shoes, but they seem to know who their audience is, and which side their bread is buttered on.

They would not DARE have the same skit about Obama. They would not DARE to even show Obama as a Sammy Davis Jr. wannabe who comes out to the audience with a cigarette and a drink, telling his McCain stories. Obama is untouchable to the media, yet it’s anything goes with Palin and her family.

Time for SNL to run something really funny. How about a skit with Wright, Michelle, Obama and Calypso Louis? The throw in a cameo of Jesse with a sharp knife. This could all be done in black face...

It’s NOWHERE to be found, not even on HULU, which is where SNL skits are supposed to be found. I’ve been looking for 2 days. It appears to me that NBC really wants this skit down the memory hole.

SNL Takes the NY Times & Reporters to Task re Sarah Palin

Plutarch to linn37
I looked too and its not there. Things that make you go hmmmmmm?

Every other skit from last night's show appears to be available. Perhaps the NYT and old media didn't find their SNL treatment particularly humorous, and they expressed a preference that this skit be ushered into a memory hole.

I wrote them a letter today and told them that I was removing all NBC stations from my selections and blocking them from coming into my home.

Personally, if someone watches it and can provide a list of sponsors I would write to them and tell them the same.

I believe this is the only way to deal with these fools. In spite of a few shows I like I will fore go them in favor of other programming.

Interesting that Al Franken has incest on his mind (he's the puke that came up with the skit). His daughter Thomasin works full time with his political campaign for a Minnesota senate seat and the old man has plenty of time to be playing hide the salami with her.

Wonder if his wife knows about this.

Exactly right. No SNL clips at ALL are on YouTube. They're always removed soon after someone posts them. No news here at all.

The NY Times probably complained since they and their reporting were the target of the skit. Other “journalists” were probably also upset and you know what kind of hissy fits journalist can throw. They are so thin skinned.

How about they do a skit involving the entire SNL staff where they act out a suicide cult scene, except it's for real. Now that would be their best one ever.

You people are being silly.

SNL has stopped being funny and I didn't see the skit, but I read a description of it and it sounded pretty funny and it was a very rare riff on the NYTs and the drive-by media.

It's sort of like what the New Yorker cover of the Obama's was trying to do.

This was a routine that could be funny in a given context. But it’s like they had no idea that “pimping their daughter” was met with big slams by the Clintons. They had no idea that Obama had said children were out of bounds. The certainly didn’t have a clue of the pubbie attitude toward children. What’s truly astounding is the complete tone-deafness of the SNL writers.

I saw this tonight on Greta's show.

It was embarrassingly bad to sit through and should not have made the air.

I think it is as much a dig at the NY Times making up stuff as it is about the Palins. However, this is lost in the translation because it was so horrifyingly bizarre.

you can slam the NY Times many other ways. It is one of those things that once it is out there, you can’t take it back. I keep thinking about how my daughter would feel if someone did this skit using her and her dad. It is disgusting. And yes, I just saw the clip, nothing funny about it.

It probably was pulled because it mocked the NYT for being what it is.....A biased newspaper with a left wing agenda.

I doubt the concern for the Palin's had anything to do with it getting pulled.

You can criticize the NY Times and not include an innocent family. If you want to do a skit about them making something up, make it something outlandish. This was just an opportunity for SNL to get a dig in to the Palins.

Rush mentioned it today and made the same point posters here have which is that they would never have done this to Obama. Never. It is disgusting, vile, and considering all the junk that has been thrown at Palin it just really opens up a huge wound. The whole media world has gone straight to the toilet.

2008, the year the media finally flopped over and died. I hope the last real journalist turned off the lights.

True enough, the incest joke was horrible and not funny.

I thought the rest of the skit was all directed at NYT's arrogance but using Palin and Alaska as backdrop.

Have you seen the SNL thing? Franken is the guy behind it. It's something out of his mind. So why is Franken thinking of such things?

The man is sick. No one should be defending him. We have to get to the bottom of this even if some of his campaign assistants have to be dragged out into the public square and interrogated at length.

exactly, there has been plenty of things that they could have done skits on that would not be flattering to Obama, and nada. There wouldn’t be such outcry if they had used some other subject, her hunting or something, but to throw out there incest was deliberate and cruel.

Palin's been getting some fair treatment from Entertainment Tonight and Rachel Ray lately.

Speaking of Rachael Ray, I was browsing one of the PUMA sites, and discovered that McCain and Mrs. McCain were on Rachael Ray's show (maybe today?), and McCain was grilling ribs. The PUMA site posted a clip of the show, and, although I'm not a fan of McCain, he was charming. Rachael gave him a "Kiss the Candidate" apron, Mrs. McCain put it on him, and gave him a kiss, and the audience went wild. He prepared and cooked baby-back ribs, Mrs. McCain said they bought their ribs at Costco, and, again, crowd went wild. Very nice, relaxed, friendly, easy-going segment, with a nice audience - Rachael's a Class A personality type, and McCain didn't let her get a word in edgewise.
