Foxnewspolitics Twitter Feed Hacked

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 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.
