Secret Service to Help Fox News

As you no doubt may be aware, Fox News had its Twitter account hacked by some hackers after sum lulz.

The barely a news organization had several Twitter tweets posted claiming that US President Barack Obama was dead.

Initially I thought Fox News had just gotten what they wanted,

but it was just a prank and the president is still alive.

Much to the chagrin of those at Fox News.

Representatives at Fox released a statement regarding the hacking:

“Hackers sent out several malicious and false tweets about President Barack Obama.”

Which is strange because I “malicious and false” statements about the President is what they do.

So basically nothing has really changed in their coverage and it was not affected.

Although there has been a very interesting twist to the story.

The Secret Service has decided to look into the incident.

Does anyone else find it strange that the Secret Service is involved?

It’s website says it has only two roles:

Crimes and investigations concerning the Treasury, and ensuring the safety of current and former national leaders and their families.

This is hardly any of those criteria.

I guess that this could be interpreted as a threat against Obama.

To be honest Fox News is a greater threat to Obama than some pranksters.
