Sin City Examiner’s Spank Bank
Since the Grand Jury verdict in Ferguson, there have been riots, looting, assaults, guns fired and cars and businesses burned to the ground. Meanwhile, all the criminals and thugs doing this are baying for policeman Darren Wilson’s blood because they don’t like the fact he had his day in court and evidence wasn’t strong enough to bring the case to trial. So, in this violent environment, when the life of Darren Wilson and his new wife are in danger, the New York Times is attempting to impose the death penalty on him via newspaper by publishing his home address.
It was a disgusting, despicable, immoral act and the two reporters responsible, Julie Bosman and Campbell Robertson, deserve to lose their careers over what they did. Of course, this is the New York Times, so they’re unlikely to pay any sort of penalty. Still, I thought they deserved to pay a price.
Sony Pictures was hit by a hack that forced employees to shut down their computers Monday and stay off the film studio’s network, according to reports.
Sony Pictures, the film and TV arm of Japanese tech and media conglomerate Sony, was hacked at some point in the last two days by a group calling itself #GOP, reported The Hollywood Reporter, citing people within the studio. The hackers claimed to have obtained Sony Pictures’ internal data, including its “secrets,” and said they would release the data to the public if their demands were not met, according to reports. It is unclear what the hacker group is demanding.
Sony has kept quiet on the incident, saying only that it is investigating an “IT matter.” Sony did not immediately respond to CNET’s request for comment.
