Saturday Night Live

From Conservapedia
Jump to: navigation, search

Saturday Night Live (often shortened to just SNL) was an immensely popular sketch-comedy show starting in 1975 on NBC, but as it became more politically correct, it predictably became less funny starting in the 2000s. SNL's poor attempt to parody Sarah Palin was widely promoted by the remainder of the liberal media. Sometimes, SNL does make fun of liberals like Barack Obama and Bill Clinton, but it still attacks conservatives and their views. Indeed, after Donald Trump won the American presidency, SNL's writers began using staunch liberal actor Alec Baldwin to unfairly parody Trump whenever humanly possible. SNL continues to run weekly from fall to spring each year despite its lack of cultural influence and increase in liberal politicization.

In the past, particularly in the 1970s and 1980s, the show turned some of its minor players into feature film actors including:
