Seeing as it's being released online for Xmas day rental suggests it was nothing but a publicity stunt.
There will come a day for every man when he will relish the prospect of eating his own shit. That day has yet to come for me.

At top dollar, as well! And it's in theaters as per originally scheduled.

Sony's release to the pirate sites features a preview for "The Putinview" and a MST3K-style "spread the word" message.

Sony is also asking people to "vote for America" and up the ratings... Currently 9.9 on IMDB.

Still not convinced, guys?

Early pirate reviews say it's "a bad movie."

All the regular critics were saying the same before the hack.

All we've learned is that NSA and American politicians are willing to lie to further monetary gain of a film studio.

I don't know that we've learned that, but I'm curious as to what you're referencing with NSA. Did they make a statement?

I still think it's a disgruntled Sony employee.

Yes, the NSA said it was North Korea behind the attacks, Obama-bot mimed agreement.

I'm having a hard time finding that in print.

Here's an article from wired that cites FBI evidence: http://www.wired.com/2014/12/sony-north-korea-hack-experts-disagree/

Here's another article about Obama's presser that cites FBI claims: https://news.yahoo.com/obama-respond-n-korea-hack-191458107.html

I don't see reference to NSA in either article except as the boogieman argument: "I BELIEVE NSA HAS OTHER SEKRET EVIDENCES THAT WE DO NOT EVEN KNOW!!!!"

The NSA reference was reported directly by television news networks... as much as that is worth.

Over here, in Europe, it was fairly widely reported that "the NSA and Obama concluded North Korea" was behind the "Cyber Terrorism" that led to Sony's massive PR stunt.
