No-one probably noticed.

It`s a shame that this new generation is this ignorant of world affairs, yet still trying to make a point by doing poo like this.

Now they can make their own website about this saying that `all will be revealed` or `We shall spread the truth.` like they have something important to tell people, but in reality they are just a bunch of angry youths not sure what they are angry about, other than that all people of a certain political mindset are to blame.

It`s people like this who are destroying America, and I understand you other countries have equivalent idiots like this too, so you can`t laugh at this.

I am certain that all of them are talking out of their asses to just attempt at spreading rumors in the least efficient way possible, no one actually looks at the scrolling text, so it`s not worth the effort they spent trying to figure out how to do this.

oooooo. Fox news bad. CNN and MSNBC good. Those right wingers bad, left wingers good.

Both sides of the aisle will sell you out and if you don`t know that, you do not know anything.

Oh my gawd. U r sooo cool.

What kills me is that they are in power right now and they still think they are the "rebellion", bringing the glorious word to the ignorant populous. In reality, people just want them to shut the drat up all ready. We get it. You hate Fox News. It`s still going to exist regardless of whether you hack into their ticker or not. Mostly because people watch it BECAUSE it is mentioned by liberals every 5 drating seconds.

Every country on earth has some debt. The UK`s is not that bad. $Debt/Capita and Debt as % of GDP is what you want to be looking at.
[quote] The only reason this isn`t getting done is because liberals want to... dismantle the military [/quote]
What you said made sense until that. The only good thing that can be said about massive military spending is that the money is put into your own weapons industry, so it helps the economy, at the expense of... whoever ends up paying that debt.

"Try the United States is a person who earns $100k but expenses are like $175k to $200k...we have a huge DEFICIT problem which means we spend more than we take in and fill in the gap with loans from around the world hence our DEBT problem."

A vast majority of our debt comes from banks inside our country. i believe only about 15-20% of our debt actually comes from foreign countries. What you say is correct except that most of our debt is from lenders within the united states.

This reminds me of "Time Square Hacked" that was just a viral marketing video for the movie "Limitless".
Same banal bantering throughout the video "OMG it`s working, OMG OMG OMG it`s going through the whole thing, WOOOOO!"

@5Cats the UK is broke. nobody wants to admit it. our governments have been borrowing far more than the taxpayers can pay back since 1976 when the country officially went bankrupt. the interest on the loans is now more than our country spends on defence and there was an 11% budget deficit last year... the uk debt at the end of last year stood at £167.9 billion, around £46bn of that is interest.

Looked fake, @Squrlz4Sale found that it IS fake, and that message! THAT`S the best you could come up with? lolz!
America (and Canada, and Europe) isn`t broke TODAY but we will be soon at the rate we`re spending. Obama put the spend-0-matic into OVERDRIVE (after years of criticizing Bush for over-spending, hypocrite much?) and hopes to "lock-in" massive deficits for the next decade! Even after he`s kicked out in 2012, his spending machine will eat up trillions every year.

And the 14 trillion Federal Debt is just the tip `o the iceberg! Every State has debt, every county has debt, every city has debt.

So adding 1.4 trillion in new debt each year is suicide, it will "hit the fan" just like Portugal, Ireland, Greece and Spain (PIGS! how fitting! lolz!) SOONER rather than later, eh?

Angilion:
"The USA isn`t broke, but it`s close enough to it for concern to be sensible.

A rough analogy would be if the USA was an individual with an income of $100K a year but mortgage, taxes, debt payments and minimum essential living expenses of $99K a year. Not broke, but not far off despite the relatively large income."

Try the United States is a person who earns $100k but expenses are like $175k to $200k...we have a huge DEFICIT problem which means we spend more than we take in and fill in the gap with loans from around the world hence our DEBT problem.

The only way to get out of this would be to rework the entire budget and at least put money into paying off principle has a show of good faith to our lenders.

The only reason this isn`t getting done is because liberals want to keep all their social welfare programs or dismantle the military...something has to give and my feeling is that when it comes down to it, the American people

I for one, don`t think it`s fake. On the group`s website, the guy who did the hack (not these two in the video; they just recorded it) explains how he did it. The display flickers because the hacker turned it off and turned it back on, with a new feed. (I`m not an electrical engineer, but I am a computer systems tester and have been one for over 10 years.)

Electrical engineer here to spoil everyone`s fun. That is 100% not what hacking into a billboard like that would look like. Think about it people, why would a marquee made of LED`s flicker like an LCD television screen? And they`re coming from what... the subway? How the hell are they going to hack into Fox`s sign from the subway?

It is most certainly, undoubtedly, absolutely fake.

Apart from that, the first five seconds were very entertaining. Dat ass...

Silly liberal arts undergrad who took one course in Economics and confuses our GDP with solvency.

They`re correct that our GDP is substantial but that doesn`t mean it is impossible for us to be in over our heads in debt- it just takes a lot of debt to get there- something to the tune of $14.5 trillion would do it.

And so what if we weren`t broke as they claim? Party? Free cake for everyone?

Also - doing a bit more research into the "causes" that this individual is associates with - i don`t think that they are left wing, i think that they are just crazy.

America`s Not Broke? We have a debt of...well, pretty much infinity at this point, no one can pay off $14trillion, and we continue to leech money with an operating budget that is unbelievably bloated. So, if the US isn`t broke - where`s the cash?

"We will rise up?" ROFL whatever.

Seems odd that a news ticker would a) have color capability (but it might) and b) that the display would actually BLINK as it was being "taken over"

Most tickers use a bit of a different interface than a monitor you hook your computer up to - due to the way the text travels across them, they often have a piece of hardware that takes simple ascii characters and displays them on the screen, in sequence, starting from the right and scrolling to the left.

In order to have caused the blink (that also shows color on a device that needs no color) one would have had to have manually taken over the PHYSICAL VIDEO FEED to the device, not the internet connected text feed.

Honestly, there`s a technical issue here. It MIGHT have happened, i`m not going to bet against it, but i really doubt it.

This whole thing SCREAMS of some stupid advertisement.

Shut up, I-IS-BORED. The rest of the world wouldn`t know Canada exists if it weren`t for America.
Yes, I dislike the way this country operates, too, but you`re not a better human because you live in a different country.
That kind of goes for the rest of the world, too. I`m sorry my country is drated up, but it`s not my choice. People like myself are trying to fix it...but you`re not any better than anyone else. It takes a little time to get a revolution started- get off our backs.



Auburn- Don`t feel bad...I`ve been submitting links pretty often lately, and NONE of my suggestions get posted. They`d rather post up stupid, incendiary religious and political vitriol or repost old junk than new, interesting stuff.
