An editor for The Blaze, the sister site of GBTV, says conservative commentator S.E. Cupp won’t likely try to sue Hustler for photoshopping a penis into her mouth for a new feature. More on their minds is who will denounce it?
On his Twitter feed, Glenn Beck, her boss, is already asking, “Where is N.O.W.?”
“It doesn’t sound like a lawsuit is what S.E. has in mind,” says The Blaze‘s Editor-in-Chief Scott Baker. “It’s more a question of seeing who will condemn this.”
Baker called Cupp “fierce” and “feminine” and said Hustler will have regrets. “Obviously there won’t be a lot of defenders on moral grounds. But will NOW — for example — say anything?” he asked. “And the counter scenarios raise good questions as Glenn Beck did on the radio — if this had been a picture of Michelle Obama what would happen? This is obviously a disgusting move by the morally hampered. We intend to say so and we’re looking to see who else will. S.E. is the true definition of fierce and feminine — I’m pretty confident Hustler will regret their depiction and their decision to publish.”
