A Twitter account belonging to Fox News posted a series of tweets reporting that President Obama had been assassinated in Iowa today.
While this is not the main Fox News twitter account, it is verified (meaning that Twitter has conformed that it does in fact belong to Fox) and it has some 32,000 followers. As of 11:00 AM, the tweets have been up for eight hours and there is no mention of a hacking on this nor the main @FoxNews account page. While real Fox News attacks on President Obama are usually mired in racism, who’s to say that the POTUS’s heritage has anything to do with this particular stunt?
So, hacker? Or Fox employee gone “rogue”? Place your bets now, Clutchettes. The fauxpology will probably be posted within the hour.
