Hustler Magazine v. Falwell edit[edit]

I hope this is the correct way to contact you but you contacted me about an edit I made to Hustler Magazine v. Falwell and the case citations, from Hustler, that backs-up my edit are:

http://caselaw.findlaw.com/us-supreme-court/485/46.html

"Of course, this does not mean that any speech about a public figure is immune from sanction in the form of damages. Since New York Times Co. v. Sullivan, 376 U.S. 254 (1964), we have consistently ruled that a public figure may hold a speaker liable for the damage to reputation caused by publication of a DEFAMATORY FALSEHOOD, but only if the statement was made "with knowledge that it was false or with reckless disregard of whether it was false or not." Id., at 279-280. False statements of fact are particularly valueless; they interfere with the truth-seeking function of the marketplace of ideas, and they cause damage to an individual's reputation that cannot easily be repaired by counterspeech, however persuasive or effective. See Gertz, 418 U.S., at 340 , 344, n. 9. But even though falsehoods have little value in and of themselves, they are "nevertheless inevitable in free debate," id., at 340, and a rule that would impose strict liability on a publisher for false factual assertions would have an undoubted "chilling" effect on speech relating to public figures that does have constitutional value. "Freedoms of expression require "`breathing space.'" Philadelphia Newspapers, Inc. v. Hepps, 475 U.S. 767, 772 (1986) (quoting New York Times, supra, at 272). This breathing space is provided by a CONSTITUTIONAL RULE that allows public figures to RECOVER FOR LIBEL or DEFAMATION ONLY when they can prove BOTH that the statement was FALSE and that the statement was made with the REQUISTE level of CULPABILITY."

Libel (aka: an outright lie) is NOT PROTECTED 1st Amendment Speech, so my edit was on the MONEY!!!!!

Then, later on in Hustler, the Court said:

"See also Street v. New York, 394 U.S. 576, 592 (1969) ("It is firmly settled that . . . the public expression of ideas may not be prohibited merely because the ideas are themselves offensive to some of their hearers"). Admittedly, these oft-repeated First Amendment principles, like other principles, are SUBJECT TO LIMITATIONS. We recognized in Pacifica Foundation, that speech that is "`vulgar,' `offensive,' and `shocking'" is "NOT ENTITLED TO ABSOLUTE CONSTITUTIONAL PROTECTION under ALL circumstances." 438 U.S., at 747 . In Chaplinsky v. New Hampshire, 315 U.S. 568 (1942), we held that a State could lawfully punish an individual for the use of insulting "`fighting' words - those which by their very utterance inflict injury or TEND TO INCITE AN IMMEDIATE BREACH OF THE PEACE." Id., at 571-572. These limitations are but recognition of the observation in Dun & Bradstreet, Inc. v. Greenmoss Builders, Inc., 472 U.S. 749, 758 (1985), that this Court has "LONG RECOGNIZED THAT NOT ALL SPEECH IS OF EQUAL First Amendment IMPORTANCE." But the sort of expression involved in this case does not seem to us to be governed by any EXCEPTION to the GENERAL First Amendment PRINCIPLES stated above.

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. This is not merely a "blind application" of the New York Times standard, see Time, Inc. v. Hill, 385 U.S. 374, 390 (1967), it reflects our considered judgment that such a standard is necessary to give adequate "breathing space" to the FREEDOMS PROTECTED BY the First Amendment."

Please restore my edit.  :)

Thanks!  :)

One more thing about my Edit[edit]

The NEXT sentence that followed my edit, says this:

"Thus, Hustler magazine's parody of Jerry Falwell was DEEMED to be WITHIN the LAW ..."

That goes to the HEART of what I said! I said that you cannot be held liable for your public speech:

"when the speech involved qualifies as protected First Amendment speech"

Please RESTORE my edit, it is CORRECT and the way it is currently stated, AFTER YOUR REMOVAL OF MY EDIT, it NOW says that you can say anything you want against a public figure and you cannot be held liable for it and if you don't restore my edit, if someone is sued for defamation, all they have to do is point at you and say "He said I could say it" and you are liable in the matter and all because you REMOVED my LAWFUL edit.

You are now liable in any and all Defamation matters that may occur, until you restore my edit, and all because you removed an edit that you are clearly not qualified to remove and Wiki members should not REMOVE any edits from LEGAL matters UNLESS you are a LICENSED Attorney at Law.

Please restore my edit.  :)

Thanks!  :)

Help with Uproxx[edit]

Hi Cirt! I noticed you're an active member of Wikiproject Media. I just posted a note there about the Uproxx entry because I recently wrote a new draft for the article and would love someone to review it. If you take a look at the article now, I think you'll see why it needs a rewrite—the content is incomplete, outdated, and some of the sourcing is weak. If you're up for it, I'd love your help reviewing what I've put together, or to hear any suggestions you might have for the article. As a full disclosure, I have a financial conflict of interest and worked on the draft on behalf of Uproxx. I won't make changes myself and am very open to feedback!
