Did you watch Super Sportsball Spectacular yesterday? Were you rooting for the Broncos? If so, you are probably not reading this because you committed ritual suicide after that game.

Fox & Friends: Why Doesn’t NBC’s Hurricane Sandy Telethon Have More People Who Sneer At People Who Need Help?

Well it is obviously Media Matters Day here on your Wonket, as they are our “idiotic Fox & Friends video” go-to, and Fox & Friends is on somewhat of a tear! Now? They’re just asking! why NBC would give Barack Obama such a wet, tonguey blow job by doing … a Hurricane Sandy benefit? Is that because hurricane relief and disaster management have liberal biases?

But then! In a suprising twist, YouTube pulled the Romney ad in response to a copyright claim by music publisher BMG, possibly because Al Green is a fan of Barack Obama, or possibly because BMG is a giant soulless corporation with a long history of acting like a complete bastard to “protect” its copyrights. The Romney campaign says its use of the clip was “100% proper, under fair use,” and frankly, we agree with them, because come on, the 14-second clip was everywhere, and unlike the zillions of other examples of campaigns using music without permission, no one in their right mind could mistake this use of the tune for an endorsement of Romney.
