CHARLIE HEBDO NEW ISSUE
On sale now: The new edition of Charlie Hebdo hits newsstands today. It’s the first one since last week’s terror attack on the satirical magazine’s headquarters in Paris. Up to three million copies have been printed. It’s a far cry from the typical run of 60,000. Still, you may have a hard time finding a copy in the U.S. It’s not typically carried on American newsstands. If you just have to have it, you can order a year’s subscription on Amazon. Barnes and Noble says it has no plans to stock it. Seventeen people died in last week’s violence, including 12 at the Charlie Hebdo offices.
Congressional challenge: A sizable group of House Republicans are looking to butt heads with the Obama administration over the President’s immigration overhaul. Conservatives are pushing an all-or-nothing funding measure that ties money for the Department of Homeland Security to the rollback of last year’s immigration reform executive order. Not only are Democrats standing in the way, but moderate members of the GOP are too. Messing with funds for homeland security may not play well just a week after the Paris terror attacks.
NORTH KOREA SONY HACK
Show us the proof: North Korea is sticking to its story that it had nothing to do with the massive computer hack at Sony, and wants the U.S. to present the evidence. The U.S. government believes Pyongyang was behind the hacking of Sony Pictures over that company’s production of “The Interview,” a comedy depicting the assassination of North Korean leader Kim Jong Un. North Korea has vehemently denied responsibility. But at the same time, it has blamed the U.S. government for being behind the making of the film and warned that America’s “citadels” will be attacked, dwarfing the Sony hack.
