    Fox News' Twitter feed says Obama is dead in apparent hack

    (CNN) -- FoxNews.com alerted the Secret Service on Monday about the apparent hacking of its Twitter feed for political news, after the feed was used to falsely report that President Obama was killed.
    To me this is not really news. FOX News has been breaking false stories for years.

    Seriously, though, I hope they catch the hackers, and hang 'em high.

    BTW, my link is CNN, who I bet are snickering their asses off over this. LOL.

    Article is here.

    I will be very interested to see the results of the investigation. I find it interesting that some of the tweets remained hours after the apology was issued. Don't get me wrong, I'm not insinuating that Fox News posted these themselves or that they are somehow involved. I just find it interesting.

    Since this made FOX News look bad, not good, for a little while, I am willing to bet the farm that FOX News had nothing to do with it, other than being the target of a sicko.

    Yeah, people should tell FOX to mellow out, that hate will just mess them up.
