The Cost of the Sony Hack, Florida-Cuba Politics, and L.A.’s Best Restaurants

We start with a look at the enormous financial cost of the Sony Pictures email hack, from legal fees to lost business. Then, how will the Obama administration’s new policy toward Cuba change politics in Florida? Next, two of L.A.’s most well-known restaurant critics duke it out over what eatery qualifies as the city’s best addition of the year. Turning to media stories, we say goodbye to two transformative series that both air their final episodes today, The Colbert Report and the podcast Serial. And finally, a look at a giant fight between Google News and publishers in our weekly Internet roundup.
