Sick movie! Sick culture!

“No Evidence that North Korea Hacked Sony”, says Mickey Huff on Project Censored Radio Show on KPFA PACIFICA. Micky Huff and Nolan Higdon 1-09-15 interview with Professor Robin Anderson about her expose of the horribly violent and hateful “propaganda movie” titled “The Interview”. Note: You can move the audio bar in the archives forward to the 30 minute mark to hear about the con-job by Seth Rogan, US media, and CIA as deliberate and planned propaganda. First half of the show is an interview with Sarah Van Gelder of Yes Magazine on “10 Ways Human Rights and Democracy Won”. Second half hour features Professor Robin Anderson and focuses on her recent expose article “Sony, The Interview, and Hollywood Illusions of Creative Expression” about the hype, spin, cries of “censorship” and collaboration with the CIA to make the reprehensible faux comedy propaganda film. US people taken again on lie ride to hate and demonize North Korea. http://www.kpfa.org/archive/id/110182

“Sony, The Interview, and Hollywood Illusions of Creative Expression” – Article by Professor Robin Anderson at The Vision Machine on December 26, 2014. http://thevisionmachine.com/2014/12/sony-the-interview-and-hollywood-illusions-of-creative-expression

Excerpts: “US officials claimed that North Korea, angered by Seth Rogan’s film depicting the assassination of Kim Jung-un, was responsible for the cyber attacks against Sony, and amid threats of theater violence, enthusiasm for the film’s release evaporated as potential costs added up. When Sony announced it would cancel the Christmas Day release of The Interview, President Obama chastised Sony saying the company had “made a mistake,” and an earthquake of righteous indignation shook Hollywood… Seth Rogen’s “free speech” rights were never at risk. He’s starred in 67 films. His film got made and was bound to be released eventually. But…Women filmmakers (a measly 6% of directors), Latino filmmakers (a minuscule 2% of directors), Black filmmakers (a tiny 6% of directors) actually face real, constant, systemic threats to their ability to speak. Embedded in those numbers are countless filmmakers who don’t get a shot. The Interview got it’s shot by blowing the head off No.1 US evil enemy Kim Jong Un, but it wasn’t Rogan’s creativity that came up with that plot twist. It came from the CIA. Don’t forget that is was Sony that also brought us Zero Dark Thirty, a film collaboration with the CIA. The torture report shared the news cycle with the Sony hacking story, and it should come as no surprise that CIA Director John Brennan, gave the same specious defense for torture woven into the plot of ZD30; that torture led to information “useful” to the hunt for Osama Bin Laden… The coverage of the cyber attacks against Sony should have prompted an examination of Hollywood’s collaboration with the national security state. Instead, a celebration of freedom of expression denied that the real story of censorship in Hollywood comes from the US Armed Forces.”
