Censored by Google/YouTube

Google/YouTube doesn’t want you to see this but somehow it made it onto network TV.

The power of live TV and comedy.

Saturday Night Live is a VERY powerful cultural institution – for good and evil.

Is it a “coincidence” that a Canadian runs the show?

Lorne Michaels – creator and still producer of Saturday Night Live – is Canadian.
