In today’s climate, and with the concessions Lorne Michaels has had to make over the years, it will never be as funny as this: U.S. Ministry of Truth Interrogates Man Who Shared Misinformation
I remember watching SNL as a kid, back in the 1970’s. It was truly hilarious. 1970’s SNL would have done this skit, exactly, this coming Saturday.
Today’s SNL is likely getting pressured to let Nina Jankowicz host the show instead of (correctly) being mocked on it.
Lorne Michaeals probably sees that SNL is in hospice care. His beloved baby has grown ill, and it’s terminal.
He should do the right thing and pull the plug. Let it die with at least a little dignity left.
I doubt that his corporate owners will let him do that, however.
