Wikileaks has released Sony emails, and there are many plump pickings. They discuss anti-Russian propaganda under the guise of countering propaganda. Typical.
This is interesting. They do call actors “meat puppets,” after all.
…We have already started to think through ways your superstars could potentially help amplify some of the great work US Embassy Paris is doing. We’d love to include Sony names in events here, either as guests or performers, and would love the opportunity to leverage their popularity to promote the President’s priorities and agenda overseas.
I’ve cc’d my Senior Advisor for Partnerships, Alan Fitts, on this email. You may actually know him – he worked for the First Lady for the first term of the Administration, and then was most recently the White House Liaison to the State Department. He is going to be leading a lot of the efforts here to bridge private companies with Embassy and Administration programs. I am hoping you may be able to speak with him or connect him with the right folks from your team. I’d love to kick off an active dialogue with Sony, and together find creative ways to do good work (and have some fun along the way).
Empire is so fun.
