And I quote one line out of the article:
That certainly begs the question of who issued the statement that Hayes was quitting “South Park” now because it mocked Scientology four months ago. If it wasn't Hayes, then who would have done such a thing?
Well, yeah, so there. At least it tells me how screwed up Scientology may actually be, if this lingering suspicion proves to be true.
And here's another quote:
Meantime, Tom Cruise may have gotten Comedy Central to pull its repeat of “South Park”'s Scientology spoof last week, but the result is that episode is all over the Web. You can see it for free at youtube.com.
Not only that, the Comedy Central Web site has four clips from the 21-minute show. And it also says that “Trapped in the Closet” will air this Wednesday at 10 p.m.
So whether or not Cruise actually did use influence at Viacom/Paramount to get the show pulled from last week's schedule, here it is, bigger and better than ever. Of course, no one would have cared one way or another if “Trapped” simply had aired on schedule.
