Media Blog on National Review Online

Media Blog on National Review Online: "I'm not sure if it's been reported yet, but for what it's worth, I just got off the phone with a Comedy Central spokesman. I asked him about last night's episode of South Park in which, at a moment right before the prophet Mohammed was supposed to make a cameo, the words, 'Comedy Central has refused to broadcast an image of Mohammed on their network' appeared on the screen.

I asked him whether this truly was Comedy Central's decision or whether this was just another gag (with South Park, you never know). He said:

They reflected it accurately. That was a Comedy Central decision."
If you kill people and blow things up, Comedy Central will respect your religion. In the same episode, Jesus is depicted taking a crap on George Bush's picture. That, of course, is not offensive and fit for broadcast, because Christians don't riot when their religion is mocked.

Maybe George Clooney will make a movie in black and white about censorship at Comedy Central?
