Comedy Central is a left-slanting cable and satellite television channel which draws a large portion of its viewership from adolescents, such as the average public school student (who watches more than three hours of television daily).
Comedy Central features adult cartoons, including South Park and Drawn Together, as well as dim-witted liberal programs including The Daily Show with Jon Stewart and The Colbert Report with Stephen Colbert. The channel is based in the Upper West Side of Manhattan.
- The Daily Show: A so-called parody news show with an extreme leftist point-of-view, hosted by Jon Stewart.
- The Colbert Report: A spin-off of The Daily Show, hosted by Stephen Colbert, who satirically portrays a conservative commentator, mocking conservatives and portraying them as buffoons, and inaccurately stating conservative values.
- South Park: A cartoon based around the lives of four foul-mouthed elementary school children in a Colorado mountain town, which pokes fun at pop-culture, traditional family values and politics.
Comedy Central has been guilty of selective censorship, refusing to show an unoffensive clip featuring the Islamic prophet Muhammad in an episode of South Parkeven though they had previously depicted him earlier in the run of the show. This is despite allowing ongoing obscenity and degradation of Christian beliefs in a number of its programs. This act of censorship was highly ironic, as it came at the end of a double episode dedicated to condemning Fox for its refusal to depict Muhammad.
