is it true?

South Park this week trashes the American media for failing to stand up for free speech in the Danish cartoon controversy, and claims that Comedy Central would not let them air a depiction of Muhammed in this week's episode. Of course, the Prophet has been on the show before, in the "Super Best Friends" episode from Season 5:

That episode originally aired July 4, 2001, but has been rerun normally, as far as I know, for years. I'm uncertain whether it has aired since the cartoon controversy began.

Update: Comedy Central execs admit they pussed out.

Update 2: The South Park Scriptorium has the clip that Comedy Central censored here. But it's probably a fake. (H/T: Jim Lindgren)
