Obama Says Sony Should Have ‘Spoken to Me First’; Sony Says ‘We Did’

“I think they made a mistake,” Barack Obama declared, weighing in on the controversy surrounding Sony’s decision to spike a movie over North Korean hacker threats. “We cannot have a society in which some dictator someplace can start imposing censorship here in the United States,” the president continued. “That’s not who we are. That’s not what America is about.” And if anyone knows a thing or two about blaming a movie for violence and pressuring someone to remove it from public view, it’s Obama (Benghazi, cough, cough). No, America is about some dictator someplace granting amnesty to five million illegal aliens, but that’s another story. “Again,” he droned on, “I’m sympathetic that Sony, as a private company, was worried about liabilities and this, that, and the other. I wish they had spoken to me first. I would have told them, ‘Do not get into a pattern in which you’re intimidated by these kinds of criminal attacks.’” That’s right. When you get intimidated by attacks, you start making prisoner swaps for nothing. In response, Sony CEO Michael Lynton said, “We definitely spoke to a senior adviser in the White House to talk about the situation. … The White House was certainly aware of the situation.” Maybe Obama didn’t get that memo.
