SNL Skit, the original draft

Here's a take on the economy one doesn't often see in the mainstream media. And it wasn't seen there long.

NBC/General Electric pulled the original SNL skit, edited it so it would meet its "standards" and offered this explanation when caught. This instance of corporate-controlled news media gatekeeping has been bouncing around the Internet since October, but it brought to mind a political science concept, the iron triangle.

It doesn't pay for GE to piss off Barney Frank, chairman of the Financial Services Committee of the U.S. House of Representatives.
