"South Park" Ridicules Comedy Central

And deservedly so. I just got around to watching my tape of the episode that's the big meme this morning.

The fact that Comedy Central portrays itself as so cutting edge and then pusses out because they won't show a cartoon of Mohammed is the ultimate in hypocrisy. Congrats to Matt Stone and Trey Parker for coming with a brilliant way to show how badly the First Amendment has been beaten down by political correctness.

This quote from Robbie at The Malcontent sums it up best:

"To think, a silly little cartoon on basic cable about a redneck mountain town does more to defend the constitution than such self-vaunted press institutions like the New York Times and CNN. What an extraordinary world we find ourselves in."
Here, here.

1 Stone and Parker have been on top of their game, in my opinion. I think for a Saturday morning cartoon post, I'll put up a video of the episode poking fun at the media hysteria over Katrina.

2 Given that "Super Best Friends" is still aired, with a cartoon depiction of Mohammed, you don't suppose CC and Parker and Stone are pulling a "work" on us? For publicity?
