    LFP Publishing Group LLC/HUSTLER Magazine is seeking a passionate and entrepreneurial Research Editor.

     

    From the first day HUSTLER hit newsstands, Larry Flynt, the fearless publisher and founder of LFP, challenged America's interpretation of the First Amendment. Flynt's style was showcased in a series of closely watched lawsuits that pitted freedom of speech against pornography and his career-long battle against censorship helped build an entertainment enterprise out of the most controversial magazine in America.

     

    HUSTLER magazine covers, reports, comments on and defines the adult news, art, entertainment, lifestyle, politics and personalities that characterize current culture. Founded in 1974, HUSTLER Magazine is published 13 times annually by LFP, Inc., and creates content for distribution via broadcast, digital media and mobile platforms.
