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