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.

Rachel is a Liberal ditz. She has a fabulous personality ~ kind of like Sarah. I watch her from time to time. In fact, I even watch the crazy old Polish lady with the crushed pink marble driveway.

She reads my stuff anyway.

Fortunately these people only represent two votes, and both vote in states where most of the people are happy to throw away their power to Democrat criminals anyway.

I want them to stay happy and stay where they are, and not move to Virginia!

Letting them know that you're banning them is always good, but it's more of a feel good thing for you than an effective instrument to whack them with. They know at some point they'll have a show you want to see and you'll be back.

Sponsors, on the other hand, are usually more sensitive to angry customers and they pay for the programs. They know that they can lose customers forever to their competition with similar products. If you find that list of sponsors, please post it! Al Fraken and those who sponsor him need to feel the love.

Then explain why all the other sketches from SNL are available on YOUTUBE, and the sketch ridiculing the NYT (the incorrectly labeled ‘incest sketch’) isn’t even available at the NBC/SNL website?

“Interesting that Al Franken has incest on his mind (he’s the puke that came up with the skit).”

Let’s at least get out facts straight. And you know I am telling the truth.

Al Franken dictated the concept for the FIRST SKETCH about McCAIN, which was really dry, and boring.

He had nothing to do with the NYT / Incest sketch later on in the show, which is the subject of this thread.

Just don’t want you shooting at bears with crooked arrows, my FRiend.

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.

I agree with you. With all the people that pass by here daily it would seem that we might be able to make a dent in NBC’s plans by getting a list those sponsors and letting them know how we feel. Personally, I think the sponsors for prime time are more important than SNL sponsors.

“If you want to do a skit about them making something up, make it something outlandish.”

I don’t know. What they picked is kinda outlandish, isn’t it?

SNL got a deep deep dig in at the NYT, if you watch the whole sketch.

If you only watch the few seconds with the line about incest, and base the whole sketch on that, then no one can help change your mind.

The ‘outrage’ over this innocent skit is absurd unless you are defending the reputation of the MSM—notably the New York Times.

This skit skewers them and their ridiculous bias against Sarah Palin and her family. They’ve orchestrated one of the most reprehensible smear campaigns based on basically nothing—and SNL crucifies them for it and *conservatives* object?!?

The whole point was SNL satirizing the behavior of the ‘elite’ media and their treatment of the Palin family!

All I can say is "In for a Dime, In for a Dollar". Franken knew.

Let him defend himself. He should be made to speak up on the question of the whys and hows incest got infiltrated into his skit.

I don't think the man has a hair. You will never see him out there defending himself even though he served as the enabler for a degree of filth only rarely seen on SNL.

“They would not DARE have the same skit about Obama.”

No, but I bet they were planning something more relevant to Obama’s gaffes.

The kneejerk reaction to those who confine themselves to one line of the whole sketch (and who are acting jut like frenzied democrats) may end up causing some resistance, or censorship, by NBC, up until the election.

No, that's not the point. The SNL crew intended to associate the word "incest" with our candidate.

They used the NYT as a tool.

A real attack on the NYT would not have included any of the current candidates ~ maybe they could have used Al Franken as their foil.

What does the newspaper say at the end?

I can read the main fake headline: “In a small Alaska town , Doubts still Linger”. The smaller headlines seems to say something like “While No ? Evidence of Incest i P? F? C? C? Evidence ? ? ?)

They wouldn’t have, if it first hadn’t been published in the NYTimes,LATimes,WaPo,DU, and KOS, and was so ludicrous that it made it perfect for Late Night Satire.

OK smartasses, NBC doesn’t get them all. Conan/Leno/SNL clips constantly get yanked everywhere on the web. They reappear later and get yanked again. NBC’s priority is stuff they will probably sell someday on DVD. Similar shows by other networks ( ABC ,Fox ) are usually left alone.

No problem. I just wanted to clarify that not all of them are pulled.

All that aside, I enjoyed meeting you and spending the day at Patriot's point with you and Jim and Shelia a couple of years ago. That is one neat place!

I honestly don’t think it gave any credence to the left. It made fun of them. The Suggestion of incest was thrown out by a “pre-op transsexual,” who was just one of the idiot and clueless reporters portrayed by SNL they were all made to look like pompous fools. He followed up by saying “it is Alaska, after all.” None of the reporters had ever been outside of Manhattan, except one who had been to Queens. He thought Queens was bigger than Alaska. None of them could drive or even had a license. All 50 reporters planned to get around Alaska by taxi.

I believe there are many on the left who like John a lot. That’s why I think that Saturday night skit was a gift.

Notice John’s staff went after the NY Times today. Rather interesting no? This could very well have been a one two punch by like minded individuals.

I don’t think this took place in a vacuum. It was a little too well timed for it to just be a coincident IMO.

In the context of the skit, the assertion of incest was made by a pre-op transsexual NY Times reporter. The entire skit was a complete slam at the elitist, insular, ignorant, NY Times.

The reporter named Karl Marx who needed 2 psychiatrists ... the feminazi with 2 last names that sued everyone for sexual harassment ... the self-certain know it all who knew nothing yet won a Pulitzer ... the neurotic polar bear-o-phobic ... the expert of Alaska who had spent one summer there 20 years ago ... the entire group of 50 journalists, none of which could even drive a car or had ever been outside of LA, Manhattan, and Sag Harbor ...

The skit was brilliant. It nailed the out of touch pomposity and narrow-minded groupthink of leftist “journalists”.

The attacks in the skit were not at all aimed at Palin or conservatives or Republicans. It was like a flame thrower of reality aimed at the tools of the left, and it was sharper in its critique of the left than almost anything I have seen them do towards the right.

In fact, most of the skits targeting the right come off as buffoonish attempts aimed at blatant and obvious stereotypes. This was aimed at the stereotypes of the left as well, but had a harsh truth to it. It is hard to believe it was a SNL skit.

I agree, this was directed at the NYSlimes. It was quite shocking actually how it attacked the NYSlimes. It is true the reference to incest wasn’t funny, but it wasn’t funny when MSM went into full throttle attack and was giving a platform to people that would say that Trig wasn’t Governor Palin’s son and other disgusting things. After hearing discriptions of the video and actually seeing it myself, I have changed my mind, I won’t be boycotting anything. It was actually brave for SNL to go there with the skit as disgusting as the backdrop was for lampooning the NYSlimes. I would like to see them do it again and again. Then they can go after 0bama, well I can dream anyway.

BTW, if Lorne Michaels winds up leaving SNL in the next six months, I believe this skit may be the reason why. If it shows up on YouTube or the NBC site, that would mitigate that thought in my mind though.
