cartman; south parkPeabody. It sounds like such a prestigious award, doesn't it? It was a really big deal with The Daily Show won, and now South Park has joined its ranks. Matt Stone and Trey Parker won the award for poking fun of all that is hypocritical in the world. Said the director of the Peabody awards, "It properly offends everybody by design and by doing so it reminds us that it's probably a good idea to be tolerant."

Other Peabody award winners:
  • Battlestar Galactica
  • Boston Legal
  • The Shield
  • House
HBO also took home a handful of Peabody awards for various documentary projects, as did the Sundance Channel. NBC Nightly News with Brian Williams and CNN both won awards for their Hurricane Katrina coverage (Geraldo was robbed!!).

The awards, given by the University of Georgia's college of Journalism and Mass Communication, will be awarded on June 5th in New York. Jon Stewart will host the awards ceremony.
