Allison Kilkenny: Unreported

Sarah Palin Hosting SNL = Lunacy

Posted in media by allisonkilkenny on October 14, 2008

From MCM:

The New York Post is reporting that Palin’s appearance (on Saturday Night Live) Oct. 25 is signed, sealed, and delivered.

If this is indeed true, it’s outrageous. I seriously doubt NBC plans on affording Biden or Gonzales the same privilege of getting free face-time on a national network on public airwaves.

NBC, and its parent company GE, are allowing Sarah Palin to perform this ridiculous PR stunt even though she parrots hateful ideologies, including forcing rape victims to pay for their own rape kit.

Also? She thinks Jesus is coming back to Earth…soon! And she’s running for the second highest seat in the land.

Which brings me to my theoretic question: If we (Jamie and I) were to organize a protest of Sarah Palin’s hosting of SNL in NYC, who could come out?

We’re not talking about standing outside in the dark with our little signs. We’re going to stand in line, get into the live taping, and then take turns yelling our slogans throughout the night, so even if a handfull of us get kicked out, there are more people scattered throughout the place to make the entire hour-long taping complete and utter hell, and the footage unusable.

Now, having said that, we have a source on the SNL staff, who tells us he doesn’t think Sarah Palin will actually be used. This is great news, and here is how you can prevent her from even getting her painted clown face on TV:

Call and complain. Say you find Sarah Palin’s rhetoric hateful and offensive, and you will stop watching SNL if Lauren Michaels (SNL producer) allows this divise, monstrous character to parade around on network television.

NBC: 212-664-4444
General Electric (NBC parent company): 212-575-6000, or 1-800-626-2000

Here’s the contact info for Lorne Michaels’ SNL production company: (212) 265-7600

This is NOT a free speech issue. The airwaves belong to the public, and NBC is not affording equal face time to the political parties. SNL has been accused of being too liberal, and now GE is pressuring the staff to “even things out” by having Palin on their show. It’s bullshit.

IF YOU CAN COME TO THE PROTEST, PLEASE CONTACT ME

If this happens, it would be October 25. We will probably only be able to receieve stand-by tickets, so you will need to arrive by 7 a.m. on the morning of the taping under the “NBC Studios” marquee on the 50th St. side of 30 Rockefeller Plaza.

Again, ideally we don’t want her on the show AT ALL, so call the above numbers, and I’ll keep you all posted
