Frankie70 writes: From the article "The Twitter account of the American Fox News Politics team was compromised and used to falsely announce the death of the US president.

Hackers, who identified themselves as "The Script Kiddies" and said they shared the spirit of prominent hacking group Anonymous, used the account to write: “BREAKING NEWS: President @BarackObama assassinated, 2 gunshot wounds have proved too much. It's a sad 4th for #america. #obamadead RIP”. "
