You might be right

But it's pretty sick - and it's still there! Perhaps twitter support isn't up yet? You'd have thought they'd suspend the account until login is sorted.

You're right. It shouldn't be there.

Last time I checked they weren't too happy about a black president!

It's now been cleaned up

Foxnewspolitics Twitter Feed Hacked
Published July 04, 2011
| FoxNews.com
Print Email Share Comments
FoxNews.com's Twitter feed for political news, FoxNewspolitics, was hacked early Monday morning.
Hackers sent out several malicious and false tweets claiming that President Obama had been assassinated. Those reports were incorrect, of course, and the president was spending the July 4 holiday with his family at the White House.
The tweets have been removed from the feed.
FoxNews.com alerted the U.S. Secret Service, which will investigate the hacking and do "appropriate follow up," spokesman George Ogilvie said.
Jeff Misenti, vice president and general manager of Fox News Digital, said FoxNews.com was 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," Misenti said.
FoxNews.com regrets any distress the false tweets may have created.

"Quickly as possible" - those fake tweets were up for at least 5 hours!

Nah! I think they're happy as long as it's one of theirs in charge!

Yeah, we all know how politically aware white supremacists are. Fundamentalists in general, to be fair.

My dad once had emergency surgery. Waited 12 hours. It must be a similar sense of urgency!
