SNL continues the narrative

Having a media narrative means never having to consult your gray matter.

Even “Saturday Night Live” got into the act last night. The show began with a Fox News sketch in which the network’s personalities tried their best to be more civil in the wake of the Jan. 8 Tucson shooting.

This civility blame game has already been discredited by everyone from President Barack Obama to Slate.com. That doesn’t matter to the intrepid writers at SNL, who used the meme to dream up a thoroughly unfunny sketch to keep the dishonest conversation alive. (Although Kristen Wiig’s spin on Greta VanSusteren was spot on).
