Morning Joe gets full marks for reporting on the South Park business, pointing out the threats, the difference between the way Mohammad was treated vs Christ, the foolishness of pretending that what was said wasn’t a threat, and the extra censorship on the rebroadcast. All very important, glad to see it happen.

However it was put under Wille Geist’s “News you Can’t use” section.

News you can’t use? Let me get this straight, Bill Clinton tries to link the Tea Parties to Tim McVeigh, that is fine. Radical Islam who you might have heard has a bit of history, “warning” south park is News you can’t use?

I suppose I should take what I can get from MSNBC, ya gotta walk before you run.

Update: Glenn has the line of the week: “Those who have no backbone will do the bidding of those who do.”

Stone and Parker see it…

One of the things that always amazes me about the MSM is that they don’t seem to realize how tilted they are. (That’s one of the reasons why even though she drives me nuts I love Mika Brzezinski, not just because she is a handsome woman but because she is not afraid to come out and say it). It’s the elephant in the room that almost everybody gets except for the media and the very liberal liberals.

That is emphasized in this Huff-Po interview with Matt Stone and Trey Parker of South Park.

“It’s so much more fun for us to rip on liberals only because nobody else does it, and not because we think liberals are worse than Republicans but, just because…”

“..it’s like fresh snow. I mean how’re you gonna rip on Sarah Palin in a new way?” Trey pointed out.

“I think sometimes we do gravitate towards things other people haven’t done and a lot of times that makes us gravitate away from ripping on Republicans cause it’s just done very well by a ton of people. It’s hard to compete with Jon Stewart, etc — those guys are brilliant.”

I also love the fact that on the single most important issue facing the west they get it:

“I think Comedy Central totally f****** p***** out. Now, they weren’t any different than anyone else, so it’s not like you can single them out. But I think it would’ve been an important statement for one media outlet in America to stand up. That was one of my most disappointing moments as an American–the American press’s reaction to the Muhammad cartoons. It was completely wimpy,” Matt Stone said. “Cartoonists, people who do satire–we’re not in the army, we’re never going to be f***** drafted and this is our time to stand up and do the right thing. And to watch the New York Times, Comedy Central, everybody just go ‘No, we’re not going to do it because basically we’re afraid of getting bombed’ sucked. I was so disappointed”

The fact that the Alex Leo felt compelled to include the next line suggests she doesn’t get it:

The irony of it all? The pair did a show that included an image of Muhammad years before and a clip of it (pictured below) runs during the show’s opening in dozens of countries, in syndication, on Comedy Central.

South Park is disgusting, sacrilegious and with very rare exceptions not allowed in the house. It is also brilliant, topical, laugh out loud funny and one of the most honest shows on television.
