The amazing success of South Park is due in part to the fact that they’re fair. Sure, they make fun of conservatives but they make fun of the left, too. They are equal opportunity when it comes to mockery.
They have apparently been paying attention to how ridiculous the media has been lately, especially CNN.
The Daily Caller reports:
‘South Park’ Creator: Show Will Lay Off Trump Jokes To Avoid ‘Becoming CNN’
“South Park” creator Trey Parker says his subversive show won’t feature too many Trump-themed gags in its upcoming season, a deliberate effort to avoid becoming a cable news show disguised as an animated comedy.
Parker told the Los Angeles Times that he never intended “South Park,” now entering its 20th year, to be a show that obsesses over every political controversy of the moment, which today usually involves the president’s latest tweet.
“We did start to become that, though, especially the last season,” he said. “We fell into the same trap that “Saturday Night Live” fell into, where it was like, ‘Dude, we’re just becoming CNN now.’ We’re becoming, ‘Tune in to see what we’re going to say about Trump.’ Matt [co-creator Matt Stone] and I hated it but we got stuck in it somehow.”
“South Park” has earned legions of fans — and the distinction of being the second-longest running animated series in TV history — by skewering the sacred cows of both the progressive left and the family-values right.
Good for them!
