CNN Fact-Checks SNL's Spoof on Obama

CNN: Thy name is shameless.

Stooping to depths only MSNBC would explore on a bad day, CNN's The Beard attempted to rescue his Dear Leader from SNL's "not fair" and "not true" segment of Obama over the weekend. Can you believe this? When has this been done before? Did SNL get fact-checked over their "I can see Russia from my backyard" comment by Tina Fey? [BTW: For all of you who failed to receive a fact-checking from CNN, Palin actually said you can see Russia from Alaska].

Grabbing a second helping of shamelessness, CNN labels Tina Fey's impression of Palin "dead on" at the end of their fact-checking segment. No matter what side of the aisle you stand on, you have to admit this is embarrassing and distressing. [H/T: Lee Habeeb]
