Networks Ignore OWS Comedy Gold
NewsBusters ^ | October 22, 2011 | P.J. Gladnick

Your humble correspondent will be watching Saturday Night Live this evening with great interest. Why? Because despite the Occupy Wall Street protests taking place at Zuccotti Park just blocks away from the studio for over a month, SNL has had only one indirect sketch on that situation despite the overwhelming comedy gold being offered up. Yes, last week SNL had a sketch about Mayor Michael Bloomberg reacting to the OWS protests but it was more of a dig at the mayor than anything else.

What makes this really strange is that OWS protests are constantly delivering up an hilarious comedy harvest whether it is the creepy "human echo" at the Occupy Atlanta Protest which kept Congressman John Lewis from speaking or trust fund baby Edward T. Hall III performing a Drama Queen denunciation of wealthy Wall Street yacht owners.

These inadvertent comedy videos are quite easy to find on YouTube such as this video (also seen below the fold) posted this morning by the appropriately self-named "f---edupchuck" whom, for reasons of delicacy, I shall refer to as "upchuck."

"Upchuck" probably figured that only a few friends and other folks would watch his video. Is he in for a BIG surprise!!!

Horrifying stupidity, marinated in willful ignorance, and wrapped in a soft flour tortilla...

Does not surprise me in the least.

SNL was from the beginning Leftist propaganda.

SNL sketches making fun of President Ford were designed to damage his reelection chances.

Yep, SNL can’t possibly top the reality TV that OWS has already provided - however inadvertently.

I still remember Dan Aykroyd’s Jimmy Carter ‘Preparation I’ speech. It seemed a bit more balanced in the first season.
