This is so meta it's like the sequen to Inception. Nytimes is writing about how Sony is mad at the Nytimes for reporting all the bad things in the leaks including how the Nytimes would regularly kill stories at the studios beck and call, lol.

And bringing back things to fapgate this was their downfall. As opposed to showing a unified front that those nudes were in poor taste, it just seemed like everyone scrambled like roaches only to peak above the cupboard when new news would leak, lol
