Obama Lied About Not Being Contacted By Sony Before Canceling The Interview Screening

Sony CEO Michael Lynton spoke with CNN’s Fareed Zakaria about the hacking and threats that were made against them that led to the pulling of The Interview from the theater. He insists that Sony did reach out to the White House, and that they did not cave in to the hackers as they still were trying to get to the movie distributed somehow.

This is in response to Obama saying at his end of the year conference that Sony did the wrong thing by pulling the movie and how he “wished they had talked to [him] first” so he could have advised them to continue with the screening of The Interview.

Lynton told Zakaria, “A few days ago, I personally did reach out and speak to senior folks at the White House and talked to them about the situation and actually informed them that we needed help.” Lynton explains that the FBI had been a great help throughout the mess, but he never spoke to the President himself about the issue although they attempted to.
