FoxNews.com’s twitter page, FoxNewspolitics was hacked this morning and to make matters worse the hacker said that President Obama had been killed… That’s not cool at all!
According to EW,
FoxNews.comâ€™s politically focused Twitter page,Â FoxNewspolitics, caused quite a stir early this morning after sending out messages to its more than 36,000 followers that President Barack Obama had been shot twice and killed at an Iowa restaurant. The assassination reports are false and were apparently sent out afterÂ Foxâ€™s account was hacked. President Obama and his family are currently enjoying their July 4 at the White House.
Fox News alerted the Secret Service of the breach, and vice president and general manager of Fox News Digital Jeff Misenti said in a statement, â€œWe will be requesting a detailed investigation from Twitter about how this occurred, and measures to prevent future unauthorized access into FoxNews.com accounts.â€
