Hackers have apparently managed to seize control of Fox News’s twitter account and pull a fast one on 33,000 Fox followers.
The hackers then proceeded to announce that US President Barack Obama was shot twice in an Iowa restaurant and that he succumbed to his injuries.
“The President is dead. A sad 4th of July, indeed. President Barack Obama is dead,” read one of the tweets.
As one could have expected Fox fans jumped at the opportunity to spread the news, but they failed to check the facts, as usual.
