Conspiracy Theory Rock: Media-opoly

This "TV Funhouse" skit by Robert Smigel (aka Triumph the Insult Comic Dog) is as true today as it was a decade ago when it was made for SNL.

The power of the giant multinational corporate conglomerates still disproportionately influences the media, the economy, & the government.

Any attempt to reign in the inevitable abuses committed by these impersonal, profit-driven monstrosities through regulation is usually met by screams of "Socialism!" or "government overreach!" by those with little sense of business ethics or social responsibility.

This particular segment was never used on the show, for obvious reasons.
