At today’s year-end news conference, President Barack Obama was asked: did Sony make the right decision by pulling the release of "The Interview?"

While Obama remarked that he’s sympathetic to Sony’s concerns, he told the reporter, “I think they made a mistake.”

Obama said that he hopes Congress is prepared to work on strong cyber-security laws next year.

“We cannot have a society in which some dictator some place can start imposing censorship here in the United States,” he said.
