Fox News Twitter hacked; says Obama dead

In likely July 4th hoax, news network’s politics feed sends out multiple tweets that US president was shot and killed in Iowa.

Obama is always kept safe by Secret Service. Only tehnology loopholes can bring him down and out.

Fox News fell victim to hackers early Monday morning who took control of the network’s politics Twitter feed announcing multiple times that US President Barack Obama had been shot and killed.

The rogue transmissions began just before 2am Washington D.C. time with a tweet that read “Just regained full access to our Twitter and email. Happy 4th.”

Approximately 20 minutes later the Twitter feed said “@BarackObama has just passed. The President is dead. A sad 4th of July, indeed. President Barack Obama is dead.”

A few short minutes later, the initial tweet claiming Obama was dead was followed by a slightly more detailed transmission: “@BarackObama has just passed. Nearly 45 minutes ago, he was shot twice in the lower pelvic area and in the neck; shooter unknown. Bled out.”

Subsequent tweets repeated the information, stating that Obama was shot while eating at a restaurant in Iowa where he was campaigning and vowing to catch the shooter.

The hoax tweets ended with a good luck message for US Vice President Joe Biden, who would take over the presidency in the event of Obama’s death. “We wish @joebiden the best of luck as our new President of the United States. In such a time of madness, there’s light at the end of tunnel.”

Fox News on Monday apologized for the embarrassing tweets. “Hackers sent out several malicious and false tweets claiming that President Obama had been assassinated. Those reports are incorrect, of course, and the president is spending the July 4 holiday with his family. The hacking is being investigated, and regrets any distress the false tweets may have created,” a statement by the network said.

My comment:

No news is so bad, that it is not good for anything.

Hackers exposes security loopholes in “waterproof” and “safe technology”.

 Psalm 147:6
The LORD sustains the humble but casts the wicked to the ground..

The global salesmen of the microchip that can be implanted under your skin, will surely claim that this chip will be safe.

As safe as Obama.
