Skip to comments.Too hot for YouTube! NBC's Palin 'incest' video yanked

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.

It wasn’t yanked because of the incest part, it was yanked because it made the New York Times look like a bunch of buffoons.
Exactly right. No SNL clips at ALL are on YouTube. They're always removed soon after someone posts them. No news here at all.
What are they afraid to show everyone what they are really like? I say put it back on so everyone can see what dirtbags the SNL people really are. As if any one who isn’t too drunk to find their way to the door doesn’t know already.
I saw the video, and It made was way more critical of the New York Times. If you didn’t see it, then you do not know what you are talking about.
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.
Back up w/attitude.
NBC still wont allow the brilliant “McCain Sings Streisand” clip on YouTube, despite the Palin-slam clip posted like 50 times. Gee, I wonder why.
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.
How about SNL doing a skit of Obama and Osama honeymooning in the Pakistani mountains...
Nah, NBC wouldn’t stoop that low.
SNL was here!!
Still inappropriate since you probably liabled his daughter since you only wrote one question and that was “if his wife knows”
Just don’t, it makes us all look bad when you go to their level.
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.
The only thing SNL screwed up on, regarding their audience, is their attack on the NYT, their own kind.
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.
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.
I need to follow your example, and tell those jerks to take that awful show off the air.
Amazingly, this SNL skit was critical of NYC culture, and US journalism. I have NO IDEA why it is being misrepresented like this.
SNL is hugely liberal, and this was one of the few times they got it RIGHT.
I doubt the concern for the Palin's had anything to do with it getting pulled.
The scene from Roadhouse where Patrick Swayze gouged out the bad guy’s throat comes to mind here. Would that it were. Would that it were.
