Media Research Center (MRC) President Brent Bozell issued the following statement on Monday in response to Saturday Night Live’s “pathetic” mocking of former Navy SEAL, and current Republican congressional candidate, Dan Crenshaw:
Saturday Night Live is pathetic and unoriginal. Making fun of a former Navy SEAL for his combat injuries shows that nothing is too low for SNL when they have a chance to mock Republicans. If Dan Crenshaw were a Democrat, this “joke” wouldn't have made it out of the writers' room -- and, if by some miracle it did, NBC would have issued an apology within the hour.
We are contacting every one of SNL’s advertisers to see if they support this attack. We will ask them if they plan to continue advertising on SNL, and we will share the results tomorrow. What a sad and unfortunate message NBC is sending to veterans across the country just a week before Veterans Day.
