Has North Korea Silenced Our Freedom of Speech?

After numerous major cinema theaters have decided to not release the film, “The Interview,” this coming Christmas, Americans are wondering what threat their freedom of speech is under in the United States.

It has been confirmed that the recently announced “Guardians of Peace,” an organization that is demanding the film “The Interview” to be scraped, is actually the North Korean government who was able to hack the Sony Corporation databases. Upon further review of current events, Sony has decided that it is in the best interest of our nation to cancel the release of the upcoming film that was scheduled to come out next week on Christmas day.

The announcement of the cancellation of the film has enraged many Americans because they feel the ideals of Freedom of Speech have been attacked. While this may seem like the case, this is not the silencing of our freedom of speech; the theaters are not cancelling the film because the North Koreans are demanding it. The Sony Corporation is cancelling its release because they want to ensure the protection of its patrons and our country. The potential threats that were released upon cinema theaters and our country are being taking seriously.

The United States of America is a very open-minded country, one that is able to find humor in everything, especially in others and ourselves. We have films and television series making humorous portrayals of our own government, and that may be why many do not understand why this may be deemed immensely offensive to other parts of the world.

Currently the film has no release date, and has no intention of being released any time in the future. It has not been leaked on any sources, so it is unsure if any one will ever see it. James Franco and Seth Rogen, the stars of film, have cancelled all upcoming interviews supporting the film as well. This is a decision that Sony has made to protect our country.
