Newt Gingrich warns that ‘America has lost its first cyberwar’ with Sony Pictures hacker attack

What may seem like a simple case of a film being pulled is being called a major defeat by others, including former House Speaker Newt Gingrich who declared “America lost it’s first cyberwar.”

On Wednesday, Sony Pictures announced it would not release “The Interview,” a movie about the assassination of North Korean dictator Kim Jong-un, because of a hack attack against the company widely blamed on the Stalinist state.

The day marked a defeat for the United States, Gingrich tweeted.

Many celebrities added their thoughts, with late night comedian Jimmy Kimmel calling it an “act of cowardice” and actor Rob Lowe declaring it an “utter and complete victory for the hackers.”

Even Mia Farrow and Michael Moore managed to say something that made sense.

Perhaps Hollywood should reexamine who it push for in elections. When you elect weak leaders the country takes on the attitude of those people.

Does anyone believe if Reagan were president this film would have been canceled? (Actually, the way Hollywood rolls these days, if Reagan were president, the movie probably would have been about assassinating him.)

It’s a sad day for America when a major movie studio delivers a crippling blow to free speech.

But what do you expect when you have a president who hasn’t met a dictator he wouldn’t cave to?
