Two N.Y. police officers slain in apparent retribution attack

NEW YORK (Reuters) - A gunman shot dead two New York City police officers in what officials called an "assassination", hours after warning on social media that he planned an attack in retribution for recent U.S. police killings of unarmed black men. Mayor Bill de Blasio on Sunday ordered flags flown at half staff around the city, hours after the city's main police union harshly criticized the city's first Democratic mayor in two decades for being insufficiently supportive of the department during recent waves of anti-police violence. #Politics #India #Brazil #markets #United Kingdom #Latin America #Mexico #city

Obama vows U.S. response to N.Korea over Sony cyberattack

Obama said the cyberattack caused a lot of damage to Sony but the company should not have let itself be intimidated into halting the public release of "The Interview," a lampoon portraying the assassination of North Korean leader Kim Jong Un. "We will respond," Obama told an end-of-year news conference. #Obama #Brazil #Technology #markets #North Korea #United Kingdom #Mexico #opinion

Should media regulations also include social media?

You can be a reporter just with Twitter now, so what do you do with journalists who are not part of newspapers? Are they beyond new regulations? Are the websites belonging to newspapers held to the same standard of reporting? #social media #HowThisWorks #David Cameron #United Kingdom #Lord Leveson
