    NYC cop killer had criminal record and angry social media posts, police say

    The cop killer didn’t have a specific target — just any two officers in uniform. And on the day of his deadly attack, those officers just happened to be Wenjian Liu and Rafael Ramos. While patrolling a Brooklyn neighborhood Saturday, the New York police officers were killed by the man who had also just shot his ex-girlfriend — and apparently broadcast his intention to kill police on social media. Here’s what we know about the shooting, the victims and the […]

    North Korea denies Sony hack but warns U.S.: Worse is coming

    North Korea is accusing the U.S. government of being behind the making of the movie “The Interview.” And, in a dispatch on state media, the totalitarian regime warns the United States that U.S. “citadels” will be attacked, dwarfing the hacking attack on Sony that led to the cancellation of the film’s release. While steadfastly denying involvement in the hack, North Korea accused U.S. President Barack Obama of calling for “symmetric counteraction.” “The DPRK has already launched the toughest counteraction. Nothing […]

    New video shows Janay Rice nuzzling Ray Rice shortly after elevator fight

    A newly released video shows the now-wife of NFL player Ray Rice lovingly nuzzling him shortly after he knocked her out cold at a casino in New Jersey.

  • Sony CEO says Obama ‘mistaken on what actually happened’ regarding ‘The Interview’

    Sony Entertainment CEO Michael Lynton responded Friday after President Obama said the studio had “made a mistake” by pulling “The Interview.” “The President, the press, and the public are mistaken as to what actually happened,” Lynton said in an interview with CNN’s Fareed Zakaria. “We do not own movie theaters. We cannot determine whether or not a movie will be played in movie theaters.” (Watch the entire interview tonight on CNN’s “Anderson Cooper 360.”) Lynton’s response came just hours after […]
