How does a Korean hacker stop a U.S. movie premiere?

Are you having a hard time digesting the fact that a Korean hacker has shut down the release of a major U.S. movie, The Interview.

Sony has pulled the movie from its Christmas release under threats of a terrorist attack after many movie houses expressed safety concerns.

The comedy depicts journalists instructed to assassinate North Korean leader Kim Jong-un after securing an interview with him.

Apparently the leader can’t see the satire and has threatened war, if released.

There is a lot of discussion around whether removing it was the right or wrong thing to do.

Should we cower to terror threats?  Do we let outsiders dictate our cultural freedoms? Our freedom of speech?

When asking questions regarding business, follow the buck.

A threat like this could kill the season’s movie business if theatre goers stay away because ‘The Interview’ is playing in the same complex.

As far as war?  Yes there may be one.

However this war will not be fought on the battlefield, or by a lone wolf terrorist who inflicts violence in a movie theatre.

This is a cyber-war fought within its infrastructure, with the potential to bring big business to its knees, and is the great neutralizer of all world powers.

I’m Scott Thompson.

Cosby only guilty in court of public opinion, so far

Let me qualify this comment by saying Bill Cosby should have come forward years ago to answer sexual assault allegations.

When someone pays off an individual, instead of going to court to defend oneself, it certainly raises suspicion.

If he had done that in the beginning perhaps he wouldn’t be in the mess he’s in. 

But that’s if he’s innocent, which he is in the eyes of the law, until proven guilty.

Despite one’s personal opinion, it’s something we have to remember when trying to disrupt a show which some are paying to see. Like those at Hamilton Place.

Demonstrating outside a venue is one thing (and your right), but trying to stop or alter the show that is going on inside, is breaking the law.

Protest organizers hope to do just that and let the performer know just how they feel about the many women who have come forward.

But should it be inside at the expense of those who disagree, want to see the act, and have a legal right to do so?

It certainly appears Mr. Cosby is guilty in the court of public opinion, but until it’s proven in a court of law, he does have the same rights as anyone else.

As do those who want to see him.

Settle Cosby case in court

Dec 17, 2014 5:00 AM

The Bill Cosby camp rolled out the wife Camille this week in hopes of deflecting attention away from the allegations he has sexually assaulted several women over the years.

Her reaction to the issue was this “was a man I do not know”.

The sad part is, no one would expect her to know. 

In fact, most would probably agree, she may be the last to know.

Otherwise, why would she still be with him?

All of a sudden Cosby’s wife of 50 years, appearing in his defense, appeared to be a victim too.

Especially if any of this is ever proven in court.

Which brings me to my next point.

Why is this not being settled in a court instead of the media?

Why is Cosby waiting to be subpoenaed?

If innocent, why doesn’t he just take these women to court?

Obviously his continuous dodging of the issue and settling out of court, is coming back to haunt him.

I’m Scott Thompson.
