'Saturday Night Live' Lets Non-Binary Comedian Lecture on Trans Kids

April 17th, 2023 8:21 AM

When NBC's Saturday Night Live made the dramatic announcement that they'd hired their first "non-binary" cast member, you could guess that the lectures would follow. Molly Kearney unloaded a sermon for "trans kids" on the fake-news "Weekend Update" segment on Saturday. 

Fox: 'Saturday Night Live' Mocks Trump More Than Biden in 2021-2022

February 1st, 2023 5:11 PM

Fox News media reporter Joseph Wulfsohn found another metric for how late-night comedy is going soft on President Biden – the “cold open” skit on NBC’s Saturday Night Live. Even during the Biden presidency, they’ve had ten cold opens on Trump, and only seven on Biden. In the current season, there are four Trump skits, and only one Biden sketch.

October 30th, 2022 7:12 AM

Ryan Long Shames Saturday Night Live (Again)

April 23rd, 2022 1:50 PM

Apolitical comic shreds crime-ridden Big Apple, home of NBC franchise. Comedians can’t be everywhere at once. If something happens in their own backyard, though, those excuses fade away. Ryan Long may be Canadian by birth, but the comedian has lived in New York long enough to state the obvious. It’s more like Escape from New York these days.


NewsBusters Podcast: No Fact Checks for 'Saturday Night Live'

April 11th, 2022 9:28 PM

NBC's Saturday Night Live aired several jokes in their most recent episode scouring Senate Republicans Ted Cruz and Tom Cotton, and nobody expects the "independent fact-checkers" will find "missing context" in the humor. They have punished right-leaning satirists at The Babylon Bee, but liberals get a pass as they pretend Ted Cruz called Ketanji Brown Jackson a pedophile for a week,…

Media Lead To Yet Another Debunked Embarrassment: Never Mind!

April 9th, 2022 4:00 PM

And the hits just keep on coming. One would think that having been humiliated by their coverage – um, make that lack of coverage – of the Hunter Biden laptop scandal, the liberal media would be just a tad more thoughtful when covering the latest supposed news. That “news,” NewsBusters’ Bill D’Agostino reported, was about a supposed “seven-hour gap in the White House call logs from January 6,…


Hunter Biden's Laptop Gets a Brief Mention -- on 'Saturday Night Live'

March 14th, 2022 8:12 AM

Hunter Biden's Ukrainian business adventures are rarely mentioned, so it's weird when they pop up on comedy shows -- as a sign of ultraconservative wackiness. On this weekend's Saturday Night Live, the show opened with a skit about the Biden White House seeking out young content providers on TikTok to work with them on debunking Russian propaganda. One girl brought up Hunter and…


Is This the Most Revealing SNL Sketch of the COVID Era?

March 5th, 2022 1:30 PM

A group of urban liberals come face to face with some awkward pandemic truths. Saturday Night Live too often produces propaganda, not satire. The show’s overtly liberal bent has shattered a legacy of mocking the powerful, regardless of party affiliation. For one night, though, the show’s propaganda gave way to something new. You could call it comic therapy. A Feb. 26 sketch featured…


LOL: Laura Ingraham Mocks Just Plain Weird 'SNL' Impersonation of Her

January 25th, 2022 8:52 AM

At the end of Monday's edition of The Ingraham Angle on Fox News, host Laura Ingraham mocked Kate McKinnon's just plain-weird impression of her to open the latest Saturday Night Live. The Fox-skewering skit was just the latest proof that SNL is just another late-night "comedy" offering made by liberals for liberals.
