Q1. I don't know
Q2. I don't know
“Real environmentalists live in cities, and they visit what's left of the wilderness as gently and respectfully as possible.” — Donna Moulton, letter to the editor, Tucson Weekly, published on August 23, 2001
But I still find it funny that everyone is bashing the network when most of the censorship was self-censorship. Nobody's calling the creators cowards for not showing Muhammed in the first place (knowing it would be censored by the network anyway, of course).
NoQ2. Should Comedy Central have bleeped the name "Mohammad" throughout the episode, and then bleep over a minute of dialogue? (this is what they did)
If you are going to allow all kinds of groups of people, religions, political figures and religious figures to be poked fun at then no one should be exempt. Plus no one should cave to a bunch of terrorist scum.
State your reason.
"A nation can survive its fools, and even the ambitious. But it cannot survive treason from within. An enemy at the gates is less formidable, for he is known and carries his banner openly. But the traitor moves amongst those within the gate freely, his sly whispers rustling through all the alleys, heard in the very halls of government itself. For the traitor appears not a traitor; he speaks in accents familiar to his victims, and he wears their face and their arguments, he appeals to the baseness that lies deep in the hearts of all men. He rots the soul of a nation, he works secretly and unknown in the night to undermine the pillars of the city, he infects the body politic so that it can no longer resist. A murder is less to fear"
Cicero Marcus Tullius
In another episode they did show Muhammad. They did NOT expect any censoring outside of the fake censoring they did for a laugh and to make a point.
Actualy watch the show.

Did you see him on Comedy Central though? Or was he censored? Was the network happy?In another episode they did show Muhammad.
No, they cleverly turned self-censorship into a show with a point. You didn't catch that?They did NOT expect any censoring outside of the fake censoring they did for a laugh and to make a point.
