Release The Kracken!: Sony Should Put 'The Interview' On The Internet For Free, To 'Screw Over' North Korea, Krauthammer Says
Matt Wilstein at mediaite.com offers a piece on columnist Charles Krauthammer's view that Sony should place The Internet on the Internet and allow Internet users to view the film for free.
Fox News contributor Charles Krauthammer thinks Sony Pictures made “exactly the wrong decision” when they decided to pull The Interview from theaters after receiving terror threats from the North Korea-affiliated hackers that committed a massive cyber-attack on the company last month.
Echoing Mitt Romney (of all people), Krauthammer said he believes Sony should put the film online for free so it is seen be as many people as possible.
Since they are already guaranteed to lose money on the project now that major theater chains have said they will not show it, Krauthammer said they should “write it off” and post it on the internet for free. “It’s a gesture” to the fans, he said. “But also, it doubly screws over Pyongyang.”
