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

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!
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.
My thoughts exactly.
Sick disgusting inbred ingrates is all I can say about them.
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?
“Its NOWHERE to be found,”
OH, that’s not completely true.
“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.
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.
They stopped being funny at least 20 years ago!
“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!
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.
Again, you know very well SNL should not have had any reference to incest.
After their non-funny and merciless attack on all Christians as whacked home schoolers with bad hair, big glasses and an anti-scientific bent, I refuse to watch.
I haven’t seen such unfunny bigotry in a long long time.
This skit skewered the press, its elitist inclinations and its anti-Palin bent. We should be applauding SNL for presenting it.
“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.
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.
Occam’s razor. It’s much more likely they were trying to be funny at the NYT’s expense. After all, that’s what it looked like.
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 ? ? ?)
That may be true, but they could've chosen another way rather than lending credence to the fantasies of left-wing bloggers.
There were no place for Reagan to go around them.
So he went OVER them.
“Again, you know very well SNL should not have had any reference to incest.”
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.
Satire? Can’t wait until they satirize Obama...
I saw it as an insult to Alaskans and regular people from a bunch of childish, boorish, leftist dopes who think they are funny.
You think they had a message... good for you... they disgust me.
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.
It’s a terrific skit, actually, satirizing the insularity of NY Times journalists who have never been off planet Manhattan. I urge everyone to find a pirate copy of it, then spread it far and wide.
I can’t find it. What page?
Thanks. Didn’t watch all of it. Found it BORING.......
oh... now I get it. hahaha...
wow that skit was funny... I should have laughed?
(I didn’t realize it was satire directed at the New York Times from NBC... how did you know? you should be a movie critic)
accusing someone of incest in this heated environment is NEVER funny......
I just heard Alan Colmes say Lorne Michaels has given the maximum allowed to John McCain.
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!
Thanks for being an excellent guide.
That was a different skit.
The NYT skit could have been written by Ann Coulter!!!
I heard Sean Hannity moaning about the skit today. It’s obvious he hadn’t seen it.
It was a savage attack on LIBERALS.
Clearly you didn’t see the skit. It was a savage attack on liberals. Well, it was savage ridicule, anyway.
The SNL incest skit
Now that’s funny. It’s not about the Palins at all. The whole thing was a huge slam on the NYTs and liberal media in general.
I have the video downloaded. Frankly, I think it made the NYT look like the fools that they are.
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.
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.
We are talking about a media that censored a harmless image of Mohammed on South Park.
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.
WND is wrong. SNL skits are routinely taken off youtube due to copyright law.
I think is about time the Repubs just ignored the media and refused to go on any the of the shows.
