The Interview: Just or Unjust?

The Interview: Just or Unjust?

Arjun P., Editor-In-Chief

In the movie, The Interview, two journalists are given a mission to kill the ruler of Korea, Kim Jong-un, during an interview. This movie is a comedy with funny journalists. However, people have mixed opinions about this movie.

On Christmas, Sony Pictures planned to present the movie to theaters. While Sony created the movie, a group was found spying on the people in The Interview. This group said they had nothing to do with North Korea, but obviously were lying when a  few days later the KCNA (Korean Central News Agency) found out about the movie. They told the government of North Korea and the government was enraged.  According to the U. S, the government of North Korea hacked Sony Pictures emails.  After this happened, Sony cancelled the movie and its trailers. Barack Obama disagreed that the movie won’t be showing in theaters. He says there is freedom of speech in the United States. He convinced  Sony Pictures to show it to viewers in the U.S.  It was not meant to be threatening to North Korea. Sony might publish the movie taking out the parts that are offensive to North Korea.

Based on the evidence, do you think that The Interview should or should not be published?
