CNN has come under fire from all sides lately, particularly regarding its rushed and sometimes faulty reporting of the Boston bombing.

Even President Obama mocked the organization during his comedic White House Correspondents' speech, saying: “I admire their commitment to cover all sides of the story — just in case one of them happens to be accurate!”

In this week's "B.S. of A," TheBlaze TV's comedy show airing Saturday nights at 10:00 p.m. E.T., the show explored the process in which breaking news might get approved for television.

"Hi, I'm Jeff Zucker, the new president of CNN," Matt Fisher begins, donning a bald cap to more resemble his character.  "We've taken some heat lately about the quality of our news reporting..."

At that point, he's interrupted by a "reporter" who excitedly says: "Jeff, I heard at the elevator that Libyans are Egyptians and Egyptians are actually robots..."

"Whew, run with that!" he replies.

Fisher continues: "During my 10-year stint as the head of NBC, I oversaw such projects as the ​Friends​ spinoff Joey​, and the transition of Conan O'Brien to host of The Tonight Show, so I think we can agree that CNN is in pretty good hands.  Isn't that right John King?"

"Jeff, I'm getting unconfirmed reports that the president is the member of the lollipop guild," host Brian Sack replies, as the CNN anchor.

The president of the network continues, getting a similar report from Flavor Flav on Twitter that Romney won the "April midterm elections."

"Zucker" concludes the promo: "Your trusted source in news, this is CNN."

“The B.S. of A.” airs Saturdays at 10 p.m. on TheBlaze TV and Dish channel 212.
