Fox News Politics Twitter Feed Hacked [guardian.co.uk]
Fox News has apparently fallen victim to hacking, with its politics Twitter feed repeatedly announcing President Barack Obama had been shot dead.
@foxnewspolitics began tweeting the information to its 33,000 followers at about 2am local time, with the posts rapidly being shared around the internet.
The rogue tweets appeared to begin after the account sent a message saying Fox had just "regained full access to our Twitter account".
