SNL Skit Poking Fun of CNN and Cable News


Last night, SNL mocked CNN's reporting style, with special attention paid to their 'reenactments'. The skit points to the ways in which media coverage has evolved, and especially CNN's own need to simulate news events. "On the faux newscast, Brooke Baldwin (Strong) led the mock cable coverage of everything from the recent Germanwings airplane crash to the ridiculousness being served up by Memories Pizza, the Indiana pizzeria that made headlines and sparked controversy when the owners said they would not cater same-sex weddings." (Quote from The Wrap)
