In what will surely come as a shock to millions across the country, fact checking site to the stars, Snopes, has revealed that everyone’s most relied upon source for breaking news, the SNL Weekend Update, is fake news.
Weekend Update has been America’s most relied upon stop for compelling news coverage and commentary for over 50 years and people are loathe to believe Snopes’ claim. But they provided compelling evidence.
There has not been a single anchor in the newscast’s entire history with journalistic credentials. Not one. This is such a shock given their repeated claims of investigations and exclusive scoops.
The newscasts themselves were apparently written by comedy teams, often just moments before the show aired. These same teams were responsible for creating other personalities that we’d come to know and love and assume to be real like Unfrozen Caveman Lawyer, The Master Thespian, and Roseanne Rosannadanna. No evidence could be found of any of these people’s existence. No social security numbers, no birth certificates, no driver’s licenses, nothing.
No verify could be found for any quotes or events reported by the anchors or guest “reporters”. Not a one. It’s as if they never happened.
Snopes has had Weekend Update in their sights for years. They had been determined to expose the news show as frauds and they worked relentlessly to make their case. And now they have. And it’s irrefutable.
American news will never be the same. How can we trust anyone anymore?
