New York: In a move to make the network’s coverage of the Middle East more even-handed, MSNBC has replaced troubled Middle-East reporter Ayman Mohyeldin with former Pink Floyd frontman Roger Waters. MSNBC spokesperson Sabrina H. explained the change of lineup. “We at MSNBC feel that Mr. Waters will bring a fresh perspective to the conflict in the Middle East. Mr. Waters is excited to hit the ground running.”
When reached for comment, Mr. Mohyeldin was noticeably distressed about the recent change of events. “I’m out of a job. I totally did not see this coming. But there’s a lot of things I didn’t see. Like the knife in the hand of the terrorist last week that everyone with two eyes could see. Then again, sometimes I see Israeli drones that nobody else can see. You know, vision’s a funny thing.”
Conversely, Mr. Waters was enthusiastic about his new job. The Daily Freier caught up with Mr. Waters at his new MSNBC office as workers installed his personal SodaStream machine. “I never thought I could land this gig, what with you-know-who running the world’s media. But I’m excited to start work.”
When the Daily Freier asked Mr. Mohyeldin what his future held, he waxed philosophical. “I guess if Mr. Waters can be a Middle East expert, then maybe I can be a bitter English ex rocker who is disliked by his former bandmates.”

You have got to be kidding. Even handed? The man hates the Jews and the state of Israel. You have become more of a circus than the republican party. Goodbye forever NBC and its affiliates.
Bro- You know this is satire, right?
This is satire, Howard Mintz. Not real. A joke. Sarcasm.
Not especially funny. Comedy with an obvious political agenda rarely works. Of course, if you think SNL is on the cutting edge of Big-Ass Laffs, you won’t agree.
