President Obama’s 2014 End of the Year Address [Sony Hack]

 

“President Obama spoke to reporters in a year-end news conference at the Brady Press Briefing Room at the White House.

One of the topics that came up was Sony Pictures Entertainment’s decision to cancel distribution of the film The Interview following North Korea’s cyber attack against the company’s servers.

The president said he thought Sony “made a mistake” and that it could set a dangerous precedent to allow “some dictator” to control free speech in America. (Update at 6:45 p.m. ET: The head of Sony Pictures defends his studio in an interview with All Things Considered.)

“I wish they’d spoken to me first,” the president said of the film’s producers. “I would have told them ‘do not get into a pattern in which you’re intimidated by these kinds of criminal attacks.”
