Hackers Post False Obama Assassination on Fox's Twitter

My first impression, when I first heard this story, after getting through the sense of revulsion that anyone would pull such a sick, despicable hoax, was that it was probably a bunch of liberals who did the hacking, seeing as how they targeted Fox News and not, say, the Huffington Post.

"Fox News was selected because we figured their security would be just as much of a joke as their reporting,” said the Script Kiddies representative.


Sounds mighty like a liberal to me!

Update: The Secret Service is taking names!
WASHINGTON — The Secret Service said Monday it will investigate the hacking of Fox's political Twitter account over updates claiming that President Barack Obama had been assassinated. Secret Service spokesman George Ogilvie says the law enforcement agency whose job it is to protect the president will conduct a probe of the false postings and that "we will conduct the appropriate follow up."

Hackers broke into the FoxNewsPolitics account early Monday, leaving a series of six tweets reporting that Obama had been shot to death in Iowa and the shooter was unknown. In a statement posted on its website, Fox News called the tweets "malicious" and "false."
