Follow-Up: France Drops Anti-Discrimination Case Against Bob Dylan

Posted by - 04:29 PM on 04/16/14
France has dropped the anti-discrimination case against Bob Dylan.
Now that the five-month investigation into Dylan's case has been closed, the same charges he faced have been brought against Rolling Stone France publisher Michael Birnbaum, who faces up to one year in jail and a maximum fine of 45,000 ($62,000) for publishing the remarks. Neither his lawyer nor representatives from the U.S. edition of Rolling Stone gave comments to the Wall Street Journal.

US gets a lot of things wrong, but freedom of speech is kinda great when you see stuff like this.

Also interested in the context of why Bob Dylan said that. Might have to dig up the article.
