In his Huffington Post blog, Hustler founder and legendary free speech advocate Larry Flynt has posted that he will donate $50,000 to the defense fund of Wikileaks’ founder Julian Assange.

As a voice that many have tried to censor, this is what Flynt had to say about freedom of the press in his post:

“Here’s what I know about censorship: The free flow of information is ultimately less harmful than the impeded flow of information. A democracy cannot exist without total access to the facts.”

Currently under house arrest in the U.K. while fighting extradition to Sweden on sex assault charges, many do not consider Assange a journalist. The same could be said about Flynt, who has been sued for obscenity, sued for libel, and famously offered a $1M reward for information leading to the exposure of the sexual indiscretions of lawmakers and politicians. – jc
