The Interview Movie pulled over threats of North Korea…

I do not know where to start with this, I am still not sure if this was some hacker attack or real cyber warfare from the North Koreans, but beyond disgust with the cowardice of Sony and the White House (who by claiming this is the NoKos effectively promoted the NoKos even if it turns out to be false), a good place would be mockery of everyone involved. Whether this is hackers or state sponsored cyberwar, we just lost this one (which you can be sure our enemies are all paying attention to).  

I agree with Instapundit, I hope this catches on
Update: I spoke too soon, Team America pulled by Paramount!

They don't make them like this anymore… 
RRG: Obama’s movie buddies punked
Reason: Threat to free speech
Wombat: Notes Twitchy, notes AmPowBlog, notes Mark Steyn (there is a pattern here)
Mark Steyn sums up disgust well with this quote:
[T]his is the same industry that congratulates itself endlessly - not least in its annual six-hour awards ceremony - on its artists' courage and bravery. Called on to show some for the first time in their lives, they folded like a cheap suit. As opposed to the bank-breaking suit their lawyers advised them they'd be looking at if they released the film and someone put anthrax in the popcorn. I think of all the occasions in recent years when I've found myself sharing a stage with obscure Europeans who've fallen afoul of Islam - Swedish artists, Danish cartoonists, Norwegian comediennes, all of whom showed more courage than these Beverly Hills bigshots.
How much did the U.S. State Department consult on The Interview?
Blogmocracy: Sony bows to fist of Juche!
Smitty: Take a bow Frank


  1. So much for the Lefty claim of Speaking Truth To Power.

  2. Let's be clear on this: Hollywood ain't worried about anything happening at any theaters. It's worried that the NorKs have even worse stuff they can leak.
