Kristen Wiig put on her Greta Van Sustren wig this weekend when Saturday Night Live spoofed Fox News, in the aftermath of much of the country calling for an end to over the top political rhetoric. SNL does it with a wink and a nod, but the comedy show raises a legitimate question: Is it even possible for Fox News to embrace civility?
The network seems to exist first to whip its conservative viewers into a nonstop frenzy, and second to deliver the news deliver their version of the news. The network is often found to be guilty of misinforming watchers.
In the clip, Wiig and Jason Sudeikis’ Sean Hannity attempt to prove their civility by renaming a controversial bill the “Repealing The Giving Our Jobs A Lethal Injection of Socialism that Is Poisoning Our Economy And Our Freedom Health Care Law Act.”
Bring on the giggles. Check out the clip below.
