A Banned Segment from Saturday Night Live

http://www.youtube.com/watch?feature=player_embedded&v=z3JLKw0q4kY

The 1998 Robert Smigel animated short film "Conspiracy Theory Rock", part of a March 1998 "TV Funhouse" segment, has been removed from all subsequent airings of the Saturday Night Live episode where it originally appeared. Michaels claimed the edit was done because it "wasn't funny". The film is a scathing critique of corporate media ownership, including NBC's ownership by General Electric/Westinghouse.

Ur kidding right? It's more relevant now than ever, after the Supreme Court ruled that corporations can spend unlimited amounts of money on presidential campaigns anonymously. Look how the media decides the GOP front runner or that Ron Paul will never be it. We're fucked.
