US free speech lawyer Marc Randazza discusses Glenn Beck parody

,----[ Quote ]
| Wikinews interviewed US free speech lawyer 
| Marc Randazza, on his defense of a parody

| Isaac Eiland-Hall created the website in 
| September, and it asserts Beck uses 
| questionable tactics "to spread lies and

| Wikinews previously reported on the case, in 
| an article earlier this month, "US free

| with camp dynamics -- such as impact on
| good order and discipline.''
