Sony Pictures and Cyber Warfare The Los Angeles Times is reporting that two former employees filed a class action suit today against Sony Pictures over the massive computer breach that exposed details about upcoming movies, business deals, juicy Hollywood gossip—and the personal information of thousands of current and former workers. Sony is in major damage control three weeks after what FBI agents call a cyber attack of unprecedented sophistication. Executives are apologizing, but the flow of inside information continues as self-proclaimed hackers Guardians of Peace promise there’s more to come. Nobody knows if it’s really about The Interview, a Seth Rogen comedy about assassinating the leader of North Korea. The big questions are who did it and who might be next. Is every corporate communication system vulnerable to total exposure?

The Trump Administration says it has lost its "strategic patience." We hear what that might -- or might not -- mean for North Korea, China and the prospects for diplomacy.
Truth and Lies in Trumpland Donald Trump is using mis-information like no President has before him. It's an unprecedented challenge to the news media, and a potential threat to democracy. We hear how the "leader of all the people" is dividing Americans and confusing the rest of the world.
