Some of the PHONY TWEETS at Fox News Twitter account
Fox News’ political Twitter account was hacked according to reports on FoxNews.com.
Tweets coming from the @FoxNewsPolitics account early Monday have been reporting the death of President Barack Obama. A series of six tweets say that Obama was assassinated in Iowa and the shooter is unknown.
Fox’s political Twitter account has more than 34,000 followers.
According to FoxNews.com, the hacking is being investigated. The website also posted an apology for “any distress the false tweets may have created.”
The hackers could have picked any number of sites. Between Christian right-wingers, nutball racists, the whole range of hate-mongers, bigots and corporate flunkeys funneled through the Republican Party like so much shit through the gut of a demented goose – there is no shortage of liars hoping to host news of the assassination of our president.
Fox News wasn’t a surprising choice.
