Squrlz4Sale so advising someone to take their baseless speculation to a site where comments are nothing but baseless is an insult to you how?

@Ajikan: Oh, come on now--I *know* you smoke some really, really good weed. But seriously, dude: I like how you make a personal insult in your second sentence and then interpret it in your third. Kudos.

You know next to nothing about me, even tho you tried.
Take your speculation to ebaumsworld, it would fit in better there. Personal insults are the mark of knowing nothing.

@Ajikan: They must have some really good weed in Vellinge. But seriously, dude, I am in awe: It must take an ego the size of a small planet to go online and tell Americans they can`t love America on the 4th (or 5th) of July.

jtrebowski a country is not in physical reality. Land and people are real. Be careful with what you say you love. And try not to get insulted when someone voices opinions on physical reality.

@unclelar: If you were an American, you`d realize that what you said was an insult to people that actually love this country.

All other arguments aside, Fox News doesn`t need help from hackers. They embarrass themselves enough on their own.

You seriously believe that? Your brilliant deduction is that Fox News deliberately reported that the President was dead, knowing that he wasn`t, and knowing that millions would realize this in seconds, just to test how far they could push things? You BELIEVE that??? Never-mind the fact that a well known hacking group already took credit for the hack... And you guys claim Glenn Beck is a conspiracy theorist... lol - WOW!!!


"I actually believe this was just another one of Fox`s regular everyday news reporting. They wanted to see how far they could push it, and when it prooved too much, they simply pulled an Anthony Wiener and said "We were hacked"."

Batmanners: That`s nonsense, Fox News has already called the DHS and has asked them to help investigate the matter with twitter.

Wiener didn`t call the cops at all and didn`t want anyone to investigate his posts.

@Squrlz A matter of standing for something, huh? Sure goes a long way over the net. Wouldn`t want to sully the reputation of a website with such high prestige as this one. I also think that if these "cretins" wish to say they were entertained by this or that they thought it was funny, then it`s on them and them alone.

But sarcasm aside, I respect your opinion, and although I don`t fully agree, I understand your point of view, so I`m just gonna agree to disagree and move on.

@WickedSteak:

Let me first note that no one on here, myself included, was under the impression that this really happened or that this was an offical FOX tweet. Everyone understands that it was a prank on the part of the hackers.

As you point out, I implied that you were finding the prank funny, when you evidently weren`t. My apologies there.

That said, where you and I seem to differ is that when someone makes a sick joke such as this, I think it should be either shunned (by not being published) or condemned. This by no means "ruins my day," as you suggest: it`s simply a matter of standing for something.

Why bother condemning a sick joke? Because silence cedes the discourse to cretins who crawl out of the woodwork with comments such as "I laughed," "entertaining," and "I wish it were true" (all actual comments below).

~Squrlz dismounts from high horse with a flourish~

@ squrlz4sale. Where did I say that I thought it was a funny joke? Sure, I`ll admit it was in poor taste, but look, I`m just saying that it`s not worth getting all upset over. The fact that there aren`t any other media outlets saying the same thing should be a pretty clear indicator that this is a fabrication. That is unless you don`t watch the news, or only get your news from twitter. So yeah, go ahead and let it ruin your day. I don`t care. I`m just saying people should lighten up and stop being so damn serious about every little prank that happens like its some huge thing. Yeah, people do stuff like this. They`re ass hats. It happens, but getting all crybaby about it isn`t going to do any good.

There are plenty of world leaders that deserve two 2 gunshot wounds, and if you American`s honestly believe Obama is one of them you`re more ignorant than I thought.

@WickedSteak: How is this "a joke"? What`s funny about it? I`m serious. The "2 gunshot wounds"? Was that the part that made you laugh? Call me a square, but I missed the memo that said fake tweets about the assassination of the President are funny.

Jeez people lighten up. It`s just a joke. You all act like the internet is serious business. It`s not like this fooled anyone. If he really were assassinated, it`d be EVERYWHERE! Come on now. Grow a brain.

IAB is more than willing to post any old falsehood to perpetuate hate against Fox News again I see.

If it isn`t poor quality `shopped images, it`s screen shots of local affiliates, or some other wankish accusal.

Not only is this not funny (particularly on the 4th of July), but I wouldn`t post it or give it attention. Publishing this kind of sick "humor" is like blowing a dog whistle for the deranged.

You can tell it wasn`t really FOX that did this, because the tweet isn`t celebratory.

Cmon fancylad, it wasnt allegedly. A group claimed responsibility and their twitter was suspended. DO some research next time.
