South Park is Back at It
One of the oft-invoked reasons for South Park‘s success is that the show’s producers are equal-opportunity offenders; in other words, Trey Parker and Matt Stone don’t single out particular groups or ideas, but instead go full-bore satire at just about anything you can think of. No doubt this has caused some pressure from Viacom in the past to edit the shows (remember the Scientology episode?) so as not to offend any of the media giant’s biggest moneymakers. This was apparently not a concern for this season’s second episode, “Informative Murder Porn,” in which various major media outlets found themselves in the crosshairs. Variety‘s Andrew Wallenstein has a brief summation of the episode’s victims, available here.
