Gawker reports Fox acknowledges the hack but couldn’t access and remove the Tweets for hours. The Huffington Post reports a hacker group claimed responsibility for the hoax, with a link to their own Twitter account.
Fox News wrote in a statement that it “regrets any distress the false tweets may have created.”
So if they linked to their own Twitter account, doesn’t that suggest they can easily be identified, and arrested? There must be a ton of laws they broke from hacking a Twitter account, to falsifying reports that the President is dead.
