Apr 5, 2006  •  Post A Comment

Comedy Central’s “South Park” has been honored with the George Foster Peabody Award, a prestigious honor recognizing outstanding television and radio broadcasting.

The Peabody committee cited “South Park” as a “notoriously rude, undeniably fearless lampoon of all that is self-important and hypocritical in American life, regardless of race, creed, color or celebrity status.”

The award is not the first for the network. Jon Stewart has won two Peabodys for election-year coverage in 2000 and 2004 on “The Daily Show With Jon Stewart.”

This year’s awards will be presented at in New York on June 5 and Mr. Stewart will host.
