Larry Flynt on Free Speech

HOLLYWOOD, Calif. — Larry Flynt has taped an interview on CNN's "Piers Morgan Tonight" that is scheduled to air tonight.

The LFP founder talks about his lifelong First Amendment crusade and more on the show, airing at 6 p.m. PDT and repeating at 9 p.m. and midnight.

"Freedom of speech is not freedom for the fellow you love," Flynt said. "It's freedom for the fellow you hate the most. And a democracy can't exist without free speech and the right to assemble. And that's what Americans tend to forget. And they're born into a culture where they take all of their freedoms for granted."

"When I first started out," Flynt said, "I used to buy into a former Supreme Court justice's argument that you can't scream fire in a crowded theater. Well, I think you can."
