Watch Saturday Night Live Mock Fox News and the Horsemeat Scandal

During the sketch “Fox and Friends,” a trio of Fox News reporters sounded off on Europe’s horsemeat crisis. Fred Armisen stepped in to play an authority from a United Kingdom food standard agency, saying that this isn’t a health issue; it’s one of mislabeling. (In real life, that’s no longer true; tests showed painkillers in small amounts of meat.) The confused Fox folks insisted that horsemeat will “make you run faster” and “poop out blue.” Jump to 3:10 to see them play into stereotypes by championing American exceptionalism and IHOP pancakes.
