LARRY FLYNT: THE DEEPER STORY
A caller to WLS Talk Radio in Chicago timidly inserted this question into the "great debate" over the vital role in First Amendment protections vs. the admittedly sickening portrayal of women, both connected to Hustler magazine publisher Larry Flynt: "But wasn't Flynt somehow connected to independently investigating the JFK assassination?"
The deeper story on Larry Flynt is that he was one of the few in the mass media publishing stories that questioned the "smiley face reality" of the 1980s. In fact, Flynt may have really pi**ed some people off, leading to the assassination attempt on him which left him partially paralyzed. I am told that they never did catch whoever shot him.
Yes, Flynt was "somehow connected to independently investigating the JFK assassination." For example, one of his now-defunct publications, Rebel Magazine, published an article by the late Mae Brussell, "The Nazi Connection to the John F. Kennedy Assassination." His advocacy of conspiracy theories must have rattled the cages of some powerful people, much more than they would have been bothered by a childish satire done about Jerry Falwell.
The January 30, 1984 issue of Rebel Magazine carried a conspiracy-related article written by Flynt himself, "Reagangate: White House Connections to the Vicki Morgan Killing." According to Flynt, high-level Reagan administration personnel relied on Alfred Bloomingdale to procure sex partners for them. But when Bloomingdale's long-time mistress, Vicki Morgan, was murdered, this reportedly opened up a potentially scandalous situation that could have put the spotlight on the Reagan Gang. Bloomingdale had allegedly placed hidden video cameras throughout his amateur brothel and these cameras had apparently caught some Washington, D.C. big shots in embarrassing postures. Attorney Robert Steinberg held a press conference where he claimed "to have seen videotapes of high-ranking Reagan administration officials sexually involved with Vicki Morgan and others." Possessing copies of some of the videos, Henry Kissinger reportedly used the potentially explosive material to blackmail his way to great power over U.S. foreign policy. Set up to take the fall for the Morgan killing was Marvin Pancoast, who Flynt thinks was an innocent patsy.
Funny how we might not have "read all about it," except for the efforts of Larry Flynt.
But why is Flynt being made out to be a hero for something else? It may be that persons wanting to thank Flynt for his efforts could not hope to get past corporate censors with the real story. So, they put out the watered-down version, thereby at least getting some of it out and (hopefully) leading to a deeper understanding.
