Sony did the wrong thing when it backed down and pulled The Interview in the face of North Korean hacker threats, President Obama said.
“I wish they had spoken to me first,” he said in a news conference. “I would have told them do not get into a pattern in which you’re intimidated by these kinds of criminal attacks.”
Obama said he was sympathetic to the damage and threats Sony has dealt with. ” “Having said all that, yes I think they made a mistake,” Obama said.
