Hey, NBC! Stop it!

NBC pulling the Natalie Portman rap video off YouTube is just about the dumbest thing imaginable. Leave it alone and let the viral video renew interest in Saturday Night Live. … Is this some sneaky strategy by NBC execs to actually generate more interest in the video and SNL? Maybe they’re smarter than it appears? I guess anything’s possible. It looks to me like NBC is still trying to live in a world of walled gardens. Geez, NBC, get a clue!
