    CNN fact checks SNL


    CNNFactCheck: CNN butt of Twitter jokes for fact checking SNL skit

    CNN has become the butt of a running joke meme on Twitter for its lame fact-check criticism of the Saturday Night Live skit which lampooned President Obama for making too many promises that he has yet to keep.

    Twitter users are among those wondering why a supposedly serious network like CNN felt obliged to respond to a sketch comedy show on Obama’s behalf, especially with a fact-check that itself did not tell the whole truth (according to CNN’s fact check, Obamacare is on course and on par with Obama’s lofty promises).

    Twitter users have played up CNN’s silliness by creating a hashtag -- Twitter-speak for search term category -- called #CNNFactCheck, used for tweeting pompous corrections of SNL sketches, well-known hyperbolic metaphors, and other absurdities usually are not taken literally – except by CNN fact-checkers of course.

    A small sampling of the best appear below:

    @DefiantKembro 'El Nino' is not Spanish for "the Nino" #CNNFactCheck

    @EnasYorl “Wayne’s World” was not really a public access cable show. #CNNfactcheck

    @ArielAkiva The superfans were not actually having heart attacks. #cnnfactcheck

    @mitrebox Panda Express does not serve real panda. #CNNfactcheck

    @CalebHowe #CNNFactCheck finds that 999,999 women do NOT think “D*** in a Box” is a good gift. Which proves the perfect woman really IS 1 in a million.

    @discerning_con CNN Breaking News: Stepping on a crack will not actually break your mother's back #CNNFactCheck

    @thecomeback After checking every river in America, we have not been able to find a motivational speaker living in a van. #CNNfactcheck

    @RobbieCooperATX CNN Breaking: Church Lady not particularly pious. Might not actually even be a lady. #CNNFactCheck

    @diggrbiii “He is not, in fact, Brian Fellow. Despite his very loud proclamations, it’s just Tracy Morgan.” #CNNFactCheck

    @jimmiebjr CNN has obtained a statement from the CDC advising that “more cowbell” is never an appropriate cure for a fever. #CNNFactCheck

    @jeffdobbs: Over half of Saturday Night Live is NOT ON SATURDAY NIGHT for Eastern time zone. Outrage. #CNNFactCheck

    @jkfecke In fact, Blue Öyster Cult never included a cowbell player named Gene Frenkle.— the musician didn’t exist. #CNNFactCheck

    @mikehassinger: This just in: "Toonces the driving cat" not real cat, can't even DRIVE! #CNNFactCheck

    @freemanhunt Neither Dan Aykroyd nor Steve Martin ever resided in former Czechoslovakia, & neither is particularly wild or crazy. #CNNFactCheck

    @tnixon16: We interrupt this program to bring you word that Buckwheat has NOT been shot. Repeat: NOT been shot. #cnnfactcheck

    @effdobbs Schwetty Balls were actually made out of animal parts, not from the male human anatomy #CNNFactCheck

    @cfcantavero Breaking News: Jane is not an ignorant slut. #CNNFactCheck

    @ORourkian After an exhaustive study, CNN has discovered Jake & Elwood’s last name wasn’t Blues and they weren’t really brothers. #CNNfactcheck

    @teh_Dede: Warning from the FDA: Cadbury Creme Eggs are not actually eggs. #CNNFactCheck

    @pow127 #CNNFactCheck finds that Dr Dre is not licensed to practice medicine of any kind. #psa

    @andylevy That wasn’t really Obama - it was actor Fred Armisen! #CNNFactCheck

    @adcdl #CNNFactCheck There are 57 states

    @johnleschen RT - Teen Spirit has no distinctive odor. #CNNFactCheck

    @pinkascii #CNNFactCheck Eddie Murphy is not white.

    I'm actually disappointed because Obama hasn't been nearly as funny as the skit was. I ask nothing of my political leaders but that they amuse me. I don't expect them to be honest or smart or effective or anything for that matter but a good source for satire and general funnies. Not only has Obama promised the world and delivered ****, he hasn't even done anything amusing. I should have expected nothing less from a liberal I suppose. At least conservatives do stuff. Even the most ineffective ones usually get caught buggering someone in an airport or something. All liberals do is take more of my money and act all serious about it too. At least W had the decency to assault the English language on a regular basis.

    It is funny that you can do a "fact-check" and "prove" that he is in fact a very effective president. But, don't hate on CNN. They've got to find some way to compete with MSNBC for the bottom of the ratings pit. At least they're being a little more open about their bias these days.

    When you're bending backwards to discredit a damn comedy show, then there's no way to hide your bias any longer. It really is a beautiful thing.

    I can see him returning to DC victorious on a big parade float shaped like a set of tits with a basket of cheese fries in his lap, a chubby intern on each arm, and a big **** eating grin on his face. The return of The Man! And he wasn't all that bad of a president. His wars were minor, and he pissed Republicans off enough that they actually remembered what they used to stand for and, as such, there was actually some moderation in DC for a time. A brief, fake cheese kinda shiny time.

    To be honest, if we could have a repub controlled congress and Bubba back in the oral office, I'd take it in a heartbeat. At least they got some sh!t done when they worked together.

    I think what they didn't manage to do is more to the point.
