The Blaze: “Hustler” smears S.E. Cupp; Update: Planned Parenthood, Sandra Fluke denounce

posted at 1:23 pm on May 23, 2012 by Allahpundit

Follow the link to see what I mean. Pure degradation, and not the first time an “adult magazine” has taken special aim at conservative women. Playboy did it too with their “hate f***” piece in 2009, but that got pulled after the outcry threatened the mag’s reputation for being kinda sorta respectable. How do you shame “Hustler,” though?

Better question: Can she sue? My gut reaction was no, partly because “Hustler” has famously been down this constitutional road before and came out a big winner. But note the fine print in that decision:

This case presents us with a novel question involving First Amendment limitations upon a State’s authority to protect its citizens from the intentional infliction of emotional distress. We must decide whether a public figure may recover damages for emotional harm caused by the publication of an ad parody offensive to him, and doubtless gross and repugnant in the eyes of most. Respondent would have us find that a State’s interest in protecting public figures from emotional distress is sufficient to deny First Amendment protection to speech that is patently offensive and is intended to inflict emotional injury, even when that speech could not reasonably have been interpreted as stating actual facts about the public figure involved. This we decline to do…

We conclude that public figures and public officials may not recover for the tort of intentional infliction of emotional distress by reason of publications such as the one here at issue without showing in addition that the publication contains a false statement of fact which was made with “actual malice,” i. e., with knowledge that the statement was false or with reckless disregard as to whether or not it was true.

The image in the Falwell case was a caricature; no one could have mistaken it for reality. A photoshop is different. The question for the court would be whether the disclaimer that “Hustler” posted alongside the image of Cupp is enough to make clear that it’s a parody or whether, in the age of the Internet and Google Images, the image has to be considered in isolation. (In that case, would they be off the hook if they simply slapped a “Satire” label in the corner of the image itself? Probably.) A separate question is what claim(s) Cupp would assert and whether the legal standards for each would be materially different. Remember, the Falwell case wasn’t a defamation claim, it was a claim of intentional infliction of emotional distress, although the legal touchstone that a public figure needs to show “actual malice” is the same in both. Could Cupp show that “Hustler” had reckless disregard for the truth here notwithstanding the big disclaimer next to the photoshop? It’d be a heavy lift, but we might get to find out.

Here she is chatting with Beck about it this morning. Exit quotation from her statement to The Blaze: “The outrage of Sandra Fluke will not be matched on my side. It seems that feminism has devolved into an institution that has picked losers and winners and has decided that some women qualify for respect and other women do not.”

Update: This is starting to get some movement on the left now, with Planned Parenthood and Sandra Fluke tweeting their condemnations of “Hustler.”

I didn’t make it about me, my attackers did Old Chick. I only made a harmless joke about the name S. E. Cupp being constructed in a similar way to a porn star’s name. Reasonable minds can disagree on this without being disagreeable Old Chick. I need to run now.

Dr. Tesla on May 23, 2012 at 5:55 PM

And by the way, S. E. Cupp is a pundit and all pundits thrive on attention so all publicity, even being on the cover of Huslter, is a good thing for them. She’s not losing sleep over this, trust me. :)

Dr. Tesla on May 23, 2012 at 5:57 PM

Reduced to talking to yourself, huh?

cicerone on May 23, 2012 at 5:40 PM

“Reduced”? I don’t understand how you arrived at that conclusion, considering that the freak of nature you are referring to never shuts up no matter who/what it’s talking at, whether that be a member of Hot Air, or the inside wall of a barn while alone.

For anyone who thinks I was wrong, that Flynt argument is not satire via Falwell.

That’s Satire

As I said, which was apparently too complicated for Pig, he wants the lawsuit as a sideshow.

Except how he won with Falwell is not the same with Cupp.

Dear Lord. How long are Ed and AP going to let that nut Tesla destroy threads?

kim kim. please. puill back from the ledge here. you guys are all stirred up. i wish you wouldnt get so upset and spend all this kharmic energy on this dumb picture. intended as a bad joke. just relax. it was a joke. i dont see it as an attack on women. if they put the d*** in romneys mouth is it an attack on men? what the hell? it was an attack with a sick joke on a human being. i dont care if it was a woman or a man. thats what THEY do, kim. rush makes a joke about sandra fluke and he is attacking ALL women? huh? no kim. thats NOT what we do. we dont act stupid like they do. we dont conflate like that; we are grownups. we dont make absurd attacks about popkle like “he is niot properly outraged (as muich as I am!) at a very sick vile joke about SE cupp so he hates and disreapects all women”. because kim that would be asinine. and liberals are asinine like that. not us.

t8stlikchkn on May 23, 2012 at 3:12 PM

For it to be a joke, shouldn’t there be something humorous.

The world is full of people who will spew insults and then say, “It’s just a joke.” Most of the time, it wasn’t meant to be funny, just hurtful.

This wasn’t meant as a joke. This was just an expression of hate.

Yes, you’re a hypocrite: you excuse and defend a filty magazine photoshopping an image of S E Cupp to contain lewd material in it, and write it if off as being nothing but a joke, but you would not want the same done to a woman you know, love, and/or respect.

There’s really nothing more to be said, but you keep making posts claiming ignorance of how anyone could possibly find fault with you or your hypocritical position.

The comment was at least a little bit funny, in spite of being in poor taste due to the context of the thread.

Funny isn’t necessarily a defense.

There’s nothing particularly funny about the picture though. You could take any picture of any woman at all and do the same. The only reason to pick S.E. Cupp is because a) she’s pretty, and b) they hate her.

tom on May 23, 2012 at 6:51 PM

For this to be satire there must be some humor in it.

Where is it?

All I see is an attack on character, not an attempt at satire.

Apparently those without morals are immune from accountability when they attack those with them, thus dragging the public morals down as well.

Welcome to Wiemar.

Soon the Brown Shirts and Red Shirts will be assassinating people in the streets and crowing about it.

ajacksonian on May 23, 2012 at 7:01 PM

Terrific.

Now anytime someone says something offensive about women, newsies are going to rush to get Fluke’s judgment on whether it is in fact offensive or not. I guess she got what she wanted: she’s now an expert on all things offensive to women.

I’m guessing none (except perhaps some lawyers). The fact you chose to use the phrase “Cupp’s defenders” is all we need to know about you. Other than Larry Flynt and his fellow slimy slugs, who wouldn’t “defend” Cupp?

When I said I didn’t look at the picture, I wasn’t lying. I don’t thinkn Allah describes it the way you just did

I don’t see why she would care in a general sense because nobody thinks that is really her, it does get her name out there, and it’s cake to condemn and few people are going to take Hustler’s side.

S.E. Cupp is comparing THAT to Rush’s Fluke’s comments. It’s even worse than I thought in terms of being a false equivalence that she is all to eager to make. Fluke but her sex life details in our face, and I think it’s free game to talk about it and make jokesabout how much money she claims to spend on it.

tom on May 23, 2012 at 6:51 PM

That’s actually a legit criticism, you could say my joke was poor in terms of context of the thread subject but I did point out that I did not look at the picture (and it appears worse than I thought although I didn’t much think about what Hustler had her doing) and I also pointed out that I thought this the first time I saw or heard her name. You have to decide if you believe me on those two points. It’s got nothing to do with the Hustler picture, just the name.

I believe there is conversational drift allowed in conversations. If you were to rigidly ban people for drifting off the specific topic of some blog post, you’d have to ban most everybody if not everybody because people are going to drift over into other subjects. I say, why is anything off topic and who cares if comments get off topic? Mediaite doesn’t care, and it is run by liberals.

How can Hustler’s actions not be construed as purposely harmful?

And this comes from people who you know believe America deserved to be attacked on 911 because we insulted Islam.

Speakup on May 23, 2012 at 7:39 PM

There’s probably a lot of Muslims along with a lot of liberals that probably wouldn’t like screennames like Allah’s Nipple Hair or even Allahpundit. Could be construed as being disrespectful of the Muslim religion, trying to give offense, etc. Policing speech can always be turned around on those who seek to do it.

Dr. Tesla on May 23, 2012 at 7:45 PM

I don’t derail anything, I just posted a throwaway joke about S.E Cupp name and you guys want to cruxify me for it and so I laugh at you about it. Nobody is stopping you from talking about the Hustler photo but really, what is there to be said that has not already been said about the subject? You can say it’s degrading and I guess say there’s a double standard but nobody really has high standards for Hustler do they? Who are those people if they exist. :)

Dr. Tesla on May 23, 2012 at 7:47 PM

mark81150 on May 23, 2012 at 5:20 PM

——

Yeah, so if I donate blood, work at homeless kitches, tutor kids, give change to homeless people, let cars on the freeway cut me, etc etc etc. None of that shows my care for my fellow human like getting outraged over a spread in a adult magazine.

Sorry I just dont go to a horror movie and complain about violence, I dont put on a old Richard Pryor stand up and complain about foul langauge and I dont look to Hustler magazine to be a decent provider of what I find to be socially acceptable. Maybe you do.

But dont try to judge my entire life on one simple opinion.

The world is a scary place, you can always find someone being offended somewhere. I dont have enough outrage to get outraged everytime I see an offensive posting, or internet comment, or blogging, or webpost, or magazine article, or tv report, or radio report, or newspaper clipping, or spray painted sign, or crude bathroom drawing, etc etc etc.

I usually laugh them off and keep moving. Sometimes people do cross the line, and those are the ones I hold to a higher level. But Hustler magazine isnt one of them.

I havent even seen the photo and I dont want too. But you raise a great point. If TIME or ESSENCE or some other respectable magazine did this I can understand the outrage but HUSTLER, really? Do people not know their history? I would imagine if you want to get outraged you have years and years of things to get outraged about if you go thru their archives.

I woudln’t doubt if that picture is Madcon’s desktop background picture now because I think I have that guy pegged.

Dr. Tesla on May 23, 2012 at 8:00 PM

You’ll notice when people stopped posting to “It”, It stayed away from the thread for awhile.

He’s already said on the last page that this topic in particular, and posting at Hot Air in general, is a big joke or game to him.

He admitted that he
1. enjoys riling people up, and that is his intent for posting at Hot Air;
2. he said it’s what he excels at (in his view);
and
3. he thinks people at Hot Air “take themselves too seriously.”

Those of you who are taking him seriously and keep defending your position – he doesn’t care either way what your views are. He doesn’t care about S E Cupp or about this issue.

He’s giggling at all the attention he’s getting, regardless of what you say, how you say it, or which side of the debate you’re on.

If I see his name at the bottom of a post while still at the top of it, I don’t continue reading it if I can help it, and I keep scrolling past.

Until Ed and AllahPundit ban guys like this, or give us an “ignore” option to weed out people whose posts we don’t want to read, this ‘scroll over it without reading it’ has been a technique that usually works for me.

Why does it matter even less that it’s a dirty skin magazine tarnishing a conservative woman? I wouldn’t let them off the hook for it simply because they are known for regularly publishing smut.

TigerPaw on May 23, 2012 at 8:04 PM

Remember when Dr Tesla wasn’t a giant douche?

Me neither.

Cindy Munford on May 23, 2012 at 8:04 PM

@TigerPaw,

How am I getting any more attention than anybody else on here. You are free to post as many times as you want too. If I’m gettig more attention it’s probably b/c of the content of what I say and how I say it. You can’t have it both ways.

Dr. Tesla on May 23, 2012 at 8:04 PM

I woudln’t doubt if that picture is Madcon’s desktop background picture now because I think I have that guy pegged.

Dr. Tesla on May 23, 2012 at 8:00 PM

I don’t derail anything

Dr. Tesla on May 23, 2012 at 7:47 PM

I kind of know how El Rushbo feels, everybody gunning for you, even people on your own side, b/c you are #1 at what you do, in my case commenting on comment boards.

Dr. Tesla on May 23, 2012 at 6:01 PM

These statements all have roughly equal veracity.

Have you started noticing yet how much people hate your stupid, inane, annoying guts?

Yeah, I would be squealing with delight because his opinion is actually worth something. Yours, not so much, buttercup.

AllahsNippleHair on May 23, 2012 at 8:03 PM

Well i think his opinion is only worth something while on radio. If he was posting on a comment board, he’d be giving it away for free.

Again, your screenname is Allah’s Nipple Hair, which tells me you are callow so why do I care if you don’t like what I say or how I say it. I think Rush is cool w/ freedom of speech, you clearly aren’t. I don’t try to control you whhy do you try to control me, doesn’t seem right.

Dr. Tesla on May 23, 2012 at 8:08 PM

Stirring the pot with your stupidity is trolling. You’ve just admitted that you think being a troll is fun.

blink on May 23, 2012 at 8:06 PM

Well, isn’t that all subjective or do you get to define what is thought provoking. I’m confident I have more on the resume than you if we are going to talk about IQ.

I’m going to roll out, you guys are angry. I take that as a sign Obama is going to lose bad but still, it’s irrational. I feel like I’m getting bullied by that high school teacher.

Dr. Tesla on May 23, 2012 at 8:10 PM

Dr. Tesla on May 23, 2012 at 7:45 PM

Darlin, Mr. Flynt has already stated quite publicly that he intends to support The Won and yes, for some reason I do tend to equate the adult entertainment business with liberals. That may be unfair and maybe there are conservatives making a buck off what I consider privates lives but it’s a lead pipe cinch that I wouldn’t support them in the endeavors.

Cindy Munford on May 23, 2012 at 8:11 PM

Well I don’t think the election is going to be decided by Flynt and the readers of Hustler, Cindy Munford.

And I think I made a good point about S. E. Cupp being too eager to make a the Hustler thing out as the same thing Rush was doing with the Fluke comments, and that was before I knew how bad the picture was.

Dr. Tesla on May 23, 2012 at 8:16 PM

Do you often think that people who are laughing at you are angry?

blink on May 23, 2012 at 8:15 PM

Well, yeah, I kind of do think people who hate me are angry.

Dr. Tesla on May 23, 2012 at 8:17 PM

Try to remember the real victim in all this.

Bmore on May 23, 2012 at 8:21 PM

Dr. Tesla on May 23, 2012 at 8:16 PM

Hmmmm, Rush was pretty quick to admit he went to far and apologize, I await with breathless anticipation to hear the same from Mr. Flynt. Ms. Cupps crime is to be pro life and conservative, to knowledge she has never targeted Mr. Flynt’s enterprise, so I fail to see why he of all people would believe her to be fair game. The answer is obvious, she’s attractive and that is what he peddles. It would be better if all subjects depicted were on a consensual basis.

Cindy Munford on May 23, 2012 at 8:24 PM

If Larry Flynt published a picture of you with a penus in your mouth, would you be upset about it or just take it in stride?
Really, im asking you. Or maybe one of your female relatives. Would she be making a big deal about nothing?

AllahsNippleHair on May 23, 2012 at 8:26 PM

Well I don’t personally believve Rush went too far. I thought his comments were hilarious. I was laughing so hard that week and then a bunch of liberals and non-Rush listerners had to swoop in and ruin it for us. I listen to Rush for the jokes, if you can’t handle that don’t listen to him. Nobody holind a gun to your head.

Dr. Tesla on May 23, 2012 at 8:28 PM

AllahsNippleHair on May 23, 2012 at 8:26 PM

Your asking the person who felt that Rick Santorum would be elected president if he would consent to hold a Sodomy Summit with gays. My guess is that he would have zero problem with the photo you suggest.

Cindy Munford on May 23, 2012 at 8:28 PM

Dr. Tesla on May 23, 2012 at 8:28 PM

The point is that Rush felt he went to far.

I never said S. E. CUpp has to take it in stride. I never told her how to deal with it, that’s up to her. I never said I would like. Nor did I say I approve of the picture. I dont think it’s necessary for me to say that. I think it’s understood. I’m a good guy.

Cindy Munford on May 23, 2012 at 8:28 PM

That Sodomy Summit joke left an impression on you guys, it’s been awhile since I made that comment, probably back in 2011. I thought it was pretty funny, bouncing off the beer summit thing and the fact all the Santy haters are obsessed with his past comments on sodomy.

Dr. Tesla on May 23, 2012 at 8:34 PM

Dr. Tesla on May 23, 2012 at 8:34 PM

we are getting as bad as liberals with this war on women stuff, hah. Your average liberal probably wants to ban Hustler too execpt in election years right after Flynt writes Democrats a fat check.
