BREAKING NEWS FROM 1975: “The New Politics of Late Night — In a wild election with a ripe orange target, comics are ditching balance and taking sides” – and Time magazine is all over this shocking “new” development!

What exactly is “new” about this story? Since the debut of Saturday Night Live in 1975, and particularly since Johnny Carson retired in 1992, when haven’t late night comics been taking sides, and often viciously so? Just think of them as Democrat operatives with punch lines, and you won’t go far wrong.
