They report; you decide

On Fox News Channel Wednesday morning, Bill Hemmer had Tucker Carlson on, pointing out how "Saturday Night Live" reportedly cut a sketch that jabbed President Obama for boasting about Bin Laden's elimination so much recently. He said the show this past week did include a sketch that poked fun again at Fox News, however, but nothing critical of President Obama. He said the anti-Obama skit would have been funny; the anti-Fox one was not. (Apparently, NBC and the show's producers are so liberal that they would throw out funny stuff just to be PC.) Then again:
Here are some of Seth Meyers' "Weekend Update" jokes this week. You decide if Fox is once again  sticking to its own partisan agenda:
WEEKEND UPDATE” ANCHOR SETH MEYERS – “A new book released this week about President Obama reveals details of his relationship with ex-girlfriend Genevieve Cook, including that she spent the night at his apartment on their first date. So at least there was a time when he could get things done quickly.”

MEYERS – “Newt Gingrich on Wednesday formally ended his campaign and gave a tepid endorsement of Mitt Romney saying, "This is a choice between Mitt
Romney and the most radical, leftist president in history." Which fits with Romney's new slogan, "Come with me if you want to live!"”

MEYERS – “President Obama on Monday unveiled his re-election slogan, "Forward." Which is strange because it seems like every forward (think email) I get is Anti-Obama.”

MEYERS – “According to documents recovered from Osama Bin Laden's compound before his death, the Al Qaeda leader was worried that morale in the terrorist organization was fading. Bin Laden was concerned that his men were so depressed they wouldn't commit suicide.”

MEYERS – “The documents also revealed that a spokesperson for Al Qaeda had said that Fox News “lacks neutrality.” I'm not usually one to defend Fox News but right back at ya, Al Qaeda.”
