"South Park" Wins Peabody Award
Comedy Central’s South Park has won one of the 65th annual George Foster Peabody Awards for excellence in radio and TV broadcasting. The committee described South Park as “Comedy Central’s notoriously rude, undeniably fearless lampoon of all that is self-important and hypocritical in American life, regardless of race, creed, color or celebrity status.”
A full list of winners is available at the Peabody Awards website. The awards will be handed out at a ceremony in New York City on June 5, hosted by The Daily Show host Jon Stewart.
