Campaign Finance Reform Silliness
NBC affiliates may not show Sharpton on 'SNL.'
Why, it must be censorship!
It sure is:
The candidate for the Democratic presidential nomination has agreed to host the 90-minute comedy show this weekend but his appearance will trigger federal rules regarding equal time for political candidates.
It could also cause headaches for NBC affiliates in states where Sharpton is already on the ballot.
I loathe Sharpton. But if SNL wants him as a host, I believe that is their right (I won't be watching, but I never watch).
The feds should stay out of it.
