We noticed with interest that “The Tonight Show with Jay Leno” bleeped a comment by Halle Berry that its in-house censors didn’t like. According to today’s New York Post, on October 19 Berry pointed to photos of herself using a computer program that distorts images. Upon seeing a picture of herself with a big nose, she exclaimed, “Here’s where I look like my Jewish cousin.” The last part was bleeped.
What’s good for the goose is good for the gander. So the next time Jay makes an offensive crack about priests, we look for equal treatment. But we won’t hold our breath as those who write his monologues get paid to offend. Catholics, that is.
