In his year-end press conference, President Obama says Sony should have consulted him before canceling the release of The Interview. Josh Barro agrees that Sony's behavior was cowardly, but says it's also a rational reaction. Barro suggests that the government should seize the movie by eminent domaine and release it. Rich Lowry also thinks Sony should have released the movie, saying it's like Adolph Hitler being able to reach into this country and stop Charlie Chapman from making fun of him. "It's all fun and games when it's Seth Rogan, but what happens when it's a New York Times reporter?" Bob Scheer's new book, They Know Everything about You, fits right into the conversation. Is it a new world for Cuba? Did Obama make the right move restoring US relations?
