"'The ultimate hypocrite is not Comedy Central. That's their decision not to show the image of Muhammad, not Parker and Stone,' he said. 'Like little whores, they'll sit there and grab the bucks. They'll sit there and they'll whine and they'll take their shot at Jesus. That's their stock in trade.'"Link

Actually, according to reports, CC actually did censor the image of Mohammed from "Cartoon Wars Pt. II". From the Wikipedia, it says they said "In light of recent world events, we feel we made the right decision." For more information, I suggest you call 1-800-222-3334.

Have you heard about the direct reference to the president of Comedy Central at the end of the second South Park Mohammed episode? When Kyle is pleading with the president of the Fox Network to air the image of Mohammed in The Family Guy uncensored, he says at one point, specifically:
“You can’t do what he [Cartman] wants, just because he’s the one threatening you with violence. Yes, people can get hurt. That’s how terrorism works. But if you give in to that, Doug, you’re allowing terrorism to work. Do the right thing here.”
This is the only such reference to "Doug" in the script. Everywhere else in the episode, this character is simply referred to as “Mr. President.” This "Doug" is undoubtedly Doug Herzog, the President of Comedy Central.
I blogged about it, and posted the relevant audio clip here.
