Dog Bites Man in Doghouse
Comedy Central’s news mockumentary Dog Bites Man is in the doghouse with the law. Comedy Central is trying to decide what to do with some of the footage from the half scripted, half improv show based on a dysfunctional morning news show in Spokane, Washington. The show’s in hot water south of the border in the state of Oregon. The state’s attorney general sent the network its second letter voicing their complaints about the cast filming one show in the state.
The LA Times printed part of the letter from the Oregon AG’s Office to Comedy Central. “We represent the state of Oregon and Portland State University in the dispute involving the fake news crew that visited PSU under false pretenses on May 16, 2006,” wrote Christine A. Chute with the office’s government services and education section. “Please provide me with written assurances that none of the footage filmed at PSU will be aired for any purpose whatsoever.”
The network hasn’t made up their mind on this video tape. But they’ve already yanked one episode after another college professor caused an uproar of being caught on the “Punk-d” style show.
