Sharpton Banned from Iowa airwaves!!!

OK more like theyre not showing Saturday Night Live this weekend cause Sharpton is the host.

Sometimes these equal time laws get screwy. Its an entertainment show, not some political debate.

Believe it or not, this issue was recently addressed in the California governor recall, when the porn star candidate tried to go on Howard Stern. They were worried that they'd have to let every stinkin candidate on the show. In the end, the answer is, no, you don't. It is an entertainment program, so they don't have to provide political equal time.

I would think the same would apply to SNL.
