Gawker Won't Take Down Videotape of Hulk Hogan Bonking His Friend's Ex-Wife

This is the link at Mediagazer, "A Judge Told Us to Take Down Our Hulk Hogan Sex Tape Post. We Won't."

Gawker's John Cook is the biggest scumbag, and I really do mean the freakin' biggest scumbag. Still, this is quite the unusual story:
We publish all manner of stories here. Some are serious, some are frivolous, some are dumb. I am not going to make a case that the future of the Republic rises or falls on the ability of the general public to watch a video of Hulk Hogan fucking his friend's ex-wife. But the Constitution does unambiguously accord us the right to publish true things about public figures. And Campbell's order requiring us to take down not only a very brief, highly edited video excerpt from a 30-minute Hulk Hogan fucking session but also a lengthy written account from someone who had watched the entirety of that fucking session, is risible and contemptuous of centuries of First Amendment jurisprudence.
Head back over to Mediagazer to read it all.

Need a refresher on John Cook? Here you go: "John Cook, Dude Trying to Out CIA Agent Who [Helped Kill] Bin Laden, Married to Anti-Zionist Allison Benedikt*."

Like I said: The dude's the scum of all scum. I couldn't care less what happens to that sex tape, although I'm not at all bothered by the pain and harassment the court is raining down on that sleazebag.
