Republican National Committee to movie theater owners: don't be bullied

Brian Stelter speaks with the RNC communications director Sean Spicer, who is calling on movie theater owners to show the controversial Sony comedy "The Interview."

Here's part of what Spicer said:

"This is not about the entertainment industry, and this is frankly not about this movie. I think what this comes down to is the very fiber of America. If we can be bullied into not releasing a movie, you have to ask, what's next? Is it an energy company? Is it a mom-and-pop small store that gets told don't show this? Is it someone who gets told you can't post a video to YouTube?

I think that we as Americans have a duty to stand up and show what we're all about when it comes to instances like this. Our view at the RNC was this was an opportunity. Somebody wanted to take away our freedom and so what we want to do is turn it into an opportunity to reward those who give our freedom.

And what we said to the studio and theater execs is show the movie and guarantee that a share of the profits go to military organizations like the USO and the Yellow Ribbon Fund to help show the rest of the world that America knows how to stand and fight."
