Scores of South Park
fans have expressed outrage at Comedy Central's decision last week to delete a
scene depicting the prophet Muhammad. Among the printable comments posted on
the South Park website were these: "This is a cowardly act." "You guys
suck." "I could smell the stench of hipocrisy (sic) through my television."
"Osama is proud of you." "Wake up America! Our way of life is being taken
away!" "They have mocked the millions that have died throughout this countries
(sic) history to ensure our rights." "With this move against free speech Comedy
Central has become uncool and irrelevant." One message observed that after
Comedy Central came under attack last December for a Denis Leary special on
Christmas, spokesman Tony Fox responded, "We don't cave to pressure and we're
not pulling the show off the air. That's not something we've ever done." For
its part, Comedy Central said last week that it was motivated by concern for
public safety. "Did we censor the show? Yes, we did. But if you hold Comedy
Central's 15-year track record up against any other network out there, you'll
find that we afford our talent the most creative freedom."
