We somehow allow ourselves to get caught up in the weird Sony/North Korea/The Interview story, even though we don't have any real idea what's going on. Even though there are more important stories, like cop push-back on the nationwide protests. Greg Dworkin willingly went along for a bit, then ran through his top APR headlines, focusing heavily on Cuba, including one throwback reference to 1998. Side note to the bizarre Sony story: Did Iran hack Sheldon Adelson? Hey, St. Louis cops didn't shoot this guy. Correction from yesterday, re: impeachment penalties. Plus, the 19th century impeachment case that could have saved us heartache in 1974. NYC police union leader invites discussion, let's say, on the confusion about and amongst cops, citizens, and our rights.
