Lorne Michaels

The Nov. 3 cover story of TV Guide Magazine takes a close look at how Saturday Night Live has helped drive America's obsession with this year's historic presidential campaign. Along the way, SNL executive producer Lorne Michaels shared some thoughts with us about the show's political hot streak.

The sketch, which lampooned a C-SPAN news conference about the government’s economic bailout package, labeled a couple as "People who should be shot" for making $24 billion off the subprime bonanza. Funny, right? Not when the characters, Herb and Marion Sandler, are a real-life couple who built Golden West Financial into a super lender and sold out to Wachovia.

More details on the controversy after the jump.
