Here’s what we know about the shooting, the victims […]

    NEW YORK (CNNMoney) — At one point, it looked like Sony was bowing to hackers’ wishes that “The Interview” never be shown.

That followed decisions by the country’s largest theater chains to not show the movie, because […]

    President Barack Obama: “the U.S. will not be intimidated by cyberattacks”

    Washington (CNN) — President Barack Obama says he doesn’t consider North Korea’s Sony hack “an act of war.” “It was an act of cyber vandalism,” Obama said in an interview with CNN’s Candy Crowley that airs Sunday on “State of the Union.” But he stuck by his criticism of Sony’s decision to cancel its plans to release the movie “The Interview,” which depicts the cartoonish assassination of North Korean leader Kim Jong Un, after the country threatened attacks against theaters […]

    North Korea warns of “serious consequences” if U.S. keeps tying it to the Sony Pictures cyberattack

    (CNN) — North Korea slammed U.S. claims that the regime is responsible for a cyberattack on Sony Pictures — and then proposed the two countries work together. “Whoever is going to frame our country for a crime should present concrete evidence,” the state-run Korean Central News Agency reported Saturday. “America’s childish investigation result and its attempt to frame us for this crime shows their hostile tendency towards us.” But in a rare move, the North Korean regime said both countries […]

    WASHINGTON (CNN) — President Barack Obama wrapped up his 50-minute year-end news conference on Friday, taking eight questions from reporters.

But he threatened to veto conservative measures that would […]

    (CNN) — Jordan Axani planned to travel around the world with his girlfriend Elizabeth Gallagher, until they broke up. Now, he’ll embark on Sunday on the circumnavigation with Elizabeth Gallagher. No need for a double-take: The name may be the same, but the person answering to it isn’t. Axani had booked his-and-her airline tickets in his name — and his girlfriend’s, he said. So, after his ex went overboard, he had to find a new co-passenger with the same name, […]
