SNL’s “Second-Hand News” Hilariously Mocks Bad Reporting (VIDEO)

By Michael Lewittes



Generally, we only laugh at ridiculously inaccurate reports, but SNL’s recurring segment about wildly wrong news makes us laugh for all the right reasons.

In the “Weekend Update” bit called “Second-Hand News,” funnyman Bobby Moynihan plays a guy named Anthony Crispino, who delivers what he thinks are scoops, but are really hilariously off-base rumors.

The clip (below) features Crispino’s take on Oprah Winfrey launching the OWN network, John Boehner becoming the new Speaker of the House, and Brett Favre retiring from the NFL.
