A series of disturbing public announcements were sent out via FOXnewspolitics’ twitter account stating that the President of the United States had shot dead during an assassination.
Twitter went bananas last night! With many social networkers falling for the “Breaking News” but all the while, President Obama was safe and sound, spending time with his family.
Foxnews.com sent out a prepared statement about the incident, claiming they were hacked and that the “Breaking News” messages weren’t sent by anyone at Fox.
Hackers sent out several malicious and false tweets 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 FoxNews.com regrets any distress the false tweets may have created.
This recent incident adds to a growing trend of high-profile cyber security breaches around the world, including an incident where PBS was hacked with a fake story about Tupac being alive. The disturbing nature of Fox’s tweets has even prompted the Secret Service to get involved!

Tongues are wagging today after Lupe Fiasco commented about terrorism and explained why he chooses not to vote.
In a video interview segment for CBS, called What’s Trending,” Fiasco (aka Wasalu Muhammad Jaco) said that casting a ballot for a politician is like an endorsement of everything that person does. Lupe won’t do that for any presidential candidates because, “I don’t want you to bomb some village in the middle of nowhere.”
Lupe is very well known for his socially conscious and politically charged lyrics, but now he has some harsh words for the president.
In my fight against terrorism, to me, the biggest terrorist is Obama, and the United States of America.
I’m trying to fight the terrorism that’s actually causing the other forms of terrorism. You know, the root cause of terrorism is the stuff that the U.S. government allows to happen, and the foreign policies that we have in place in different countries that inspire people to become terrorists. And it’s easy for us because it’s just some oil.”
