Over the 4th of July weekend the Fox News political Twitter page posted some disturbing tweets regarding our President. Now one may argue if this is was really the work of hackers or a strategically planned release. Not beings a conspiracy theorist, site only considering the rhetoric that the Fox political system currently promotes, combined with the “anything for ratings” attitude would not put that idea completely out of reach.
As the story is told, 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.
The only remarks from Fox News are from Jeff Misenti, vice president and general manager of Fox News Digital,who said:
“Fox News is working with Twitter to address the situation as quickly as possible. “We will be requesting a detailed investigation from Twitter about how this occurred, and measures to prevent future unauthorized access into FoxNews.com accounts”
