First They Came for the Buddy Comedies….

Jeet Heer on the ongoing The Interview debacle, which we should all take seriously, I guess, even though it’s really, really hard to. For me anyways.

If there’s anything that can be taken away form this, it’s that derailing the entertainment industry is apparently pretty damn easy. I’m more worried about GamerGate-type trolls benefiting from that lesson than I am about our geopolitical foes.

Heet’s Twitter essay on the whole thing is worth a read, as is his group blog, Sans Everything, which I’ve only recently discovered.
