‘SNL’ Cast Wanted to be Fair to Palin

Sep 17, 2008  •  Post A Comment

“Saturday Night Live” star and head writer Seth Meyers said the show was hoping to be “as fair and evenhanded as possible” in putting together last Saturday’s opening sketch spoofing Gov. Sarah Palin and Sen. Hillary Clinton, the New York Times reports. The sketch, starring Tina Fey and Amy Poehler, became an instant viral video sensation online. NBC Universal has moved to keep clips from “SNL” off YouTube and other unauthorized Web video sites while redirecting traffic to NBC.com and Hulu.com, Wired reports. Meanwhile, the New York Observer takes a look at the media bubble expanding around all things Sarah Palin related.

  1. Why should we be fair to Palin? Honestly, and I speak for most of my colleagues, she hasn’t always bee fair to those of us out here in Alaska who are minding our own business. Time and time again she has shown a lack of respect for our native environment and that needs to be flushed out. Even Rocky agrees with me this time.

  2. Everyone deserves a fair shot. I’m not sure who most of Bullwinkle’s colleagues are, but the majority of Alaskans are happy with Palin’s stint as governor, proven by the current opinion polls.
    While i think the skit was funny, i don’t think it was very fair. It portrayed her as a ditzy, attractive woman who’s foreign policy consisted of seeing Russia from her house. Not accurate, but very funny.

  3. “Bullwinkle” and his fellow whiners will get their comeuppance in November when Sarah Palin propels John McCain into the White House. All those mysterious “colleagues” should get down on their knees and thank her for saving us from the “Messiah.”

  4. I invite Bullwinkle to attend my son’s hockey game next week and express these opinions.

  5. Whats wrong with being fair?
    Why is everyone so afraid of being fair on either side?
    I hate politics and how it drives people apart.
    Does anybody know whats goes on inside Obahama’s head?
    Or Sarah’s?
    I don’t know if Fox is fair and balanced but at least they say they are.
    Shouldn’t everyone grant mercy to those who they don’t share the same opinion?
    Can’t we agree to disagree?
    So I say thumbs up to SNL for trying to be fair to Sarah.
