BEVERLY HILLS, Calif. — Hustler Founder and Publisher Larry Flynt reflects on the 25th anniversary of his historic, unanimous U.S. Supreme Court victory over the Rev. Jerry Falwell in an exclusive, in-depth interview in July's Hustler.

The issue, which goes on sale tomorrow, is titled “Hypocrisy is the Enemy," and gives a "chilling look" at 10 news stories that the mainstream media doesn’t want you to know about.

The victory over Falwell a quarter of a century ago was reached in the  landmark U.S. Supreme Court decision in 1988, when Flynt was sued over an "offensive" ad parody in Hustler that suggested Falwell's first sexual encounter was with his mother in an outhouse.

The 8-0 decision in Flynt’s favor made parody a protected form of free speech, clarifying that a public figure cannot recover damages over “intentional infliction of emotional distress” based on parodies.

Also headlining in the July edition is onetime Charlie Sheen goddess Bree Olson, who was voted by Hustler readers as "Porn Star of the Year."
