Wake up

From todays Herald:
The new series of US drama 24 was criticised by Britain's leading Muslim organisation for depicting followers of Islam as terrorists.

Methinks the key word of that paragraph was 'drama'. Its not based on a true story, nor is it a comedy. Wake up man, its a fictional TV drama.

I was thinking about that other favourite program of mine 'Nip/Tuck' soon to return to my TV. Why have no Asians complained about the title of this show? Isn't a 'Nip' slang for Jap/Korean/Chinese etc, from wartimes?
