"Red Eye" panel debates: Can S.E. Cupp sue "Hustler"?

“I am not going to recall the name of the preacher gentleman down South where there is a Supreme Court case that was brought,” co-panelist Sandra Smith noted, referring to Hustler Magazine v. Falwell. “He brought it upon the Supreme Court. The Supreme Court ruled that the First Amendment right was Hustler – Larry Flynt and Hustler won because it was under the understanding that it was so absurd it couldn’t be true. Unfortunately, not everybody knows S.E. Cupp and, in the internet age, it could be posted without context. And it is very unfortunate. It is crude and degrading.”

Comedian Joe Devuto said he was disappointed in Hustler for their actions.

“If you can’t turn to Hustler magazine for reasoned political discourse, I don’t know what the world is coming to,” he cracked.
