Not so fast, the hacking of Sony is affecting his career.
Hollywood heavyweight and pompous left wing stalwart George Clooney just uttered one of the most ironic lines of his career.
“A good portion of the press abdicated its real duty. They played the fiddle while Rome burned,” he told deadline.com. “There was a real story going on. With just a little bit of work, you could have found out . . .”
. . . that the Obama administration lies to us just about every time they open their mouths? Nope.
In Clooney’s world, they could have found out “that it wasn’t just probably North Korea; it was North Korea.”
Wow George really? Where were you when conservatives were screaming about the media “fiddling while Rome burned,” as you put it, for the past six years?
Where were you when the media buried stories like Benghazi, IRS targeting of conservatives, Fast & Furious, NSA spying on the AP and the Solyndra debacle just to name a few? America could’ve used your voice to call attention to the lack of journalism then.
So why the sudden change of heart?
Oh! Because it affects you and your livelihood.
Clooney was speaking out, of course, about the Sony Pictures hacking scandal that forced the movie giant to cancel the release of its film “The Interview” Wednesday amid threats of a 9/11 style attack and after troves of emails, financial statements, movies and scripts we’re leaked online by, who the FBI now confirms was the, North Korean government.
