Fox News Twitter Account Reports President Obama Assassinated

Fox News’ political Twitter account, @foxnewspolitics, reported that President Barack Obama had been assassinated on Monday, July 4 in a series of six tweets. (He wasn’t.)

Oh. Hell. No.

The screenshot above was taken at 8:45 Eastern on July 5. Fox is claiming they were hacked in a more recent tweet, but for some reason the company has NOT deleted the horrendously inappropriate tweets even after gaining control over their account once more.

The Secret Service refused to comment on the situation, but Fox insists there will be an investigation into the hacking. But who will be doing the investigating? There’s been a long list lately of wrongdoers falsely claiming they were hacked to cover up terrible mistakes. Just ask Soulja Boy, Anthony Weiner and James Franco – although in Franco’s defense, we quite enjoyed his twitter mystery.

Just who will be looking into Fox News’ Twitter hoax?

  • Oh Fox News, why am I not surprised.

    “fox news has more than 34,000 followers” well that restores some of my faith in humanity. Only 34,000 idiots listen to this BS rhetoric. I’m going to enjoy my coffee and laugh a bit now. 

  • Fox News will do what they always do, blame the hackers for being LIBERAL and say that they were just trying to make FN and conservatives look bad. Come on, we all know that’s what will happen. I gotta admit, I love how stupid those hackers made FN look. I mean, its not as if FN isn’t led by a bunch of dumbasses anyway.

    Faux is the ugly step-child, waiting for the Fairy-Godmother, but hasn’t gotten the memo that Disney stopped creating those type of films. Animation is out, Miley [Pot smokin’] Cyrus is in and there will never be a happy ending. In other words, we will never love you. Go ahead and leave already.

    Come on now, did any of us really expect @LulzSec to actually quit?

    ONLY 34,000?! That is way too many people!
