SNL mocks media’s Linsanity

If you missed SNL’s opening skit on Jeremy Lin you’re certainly in for a treat below. The sketch pokes fun of how the media has been a bit too folksy in their coverage of Lin and how the rise of an Asian baskeball star has opened the door to be subtly racist at times.

A pretty entertaining jab at the media from SNL that covered a lot of ground. The dubbing of Lin’s interview had me in stiches. This was a solid job by the SNL guys and I’m guessing there could be more skits like these on the horizon as Linsanity doesn’t look to be just breezing through, but becoming a nationwide phenomenon.
