Happy Independence Day all!

And here’s a quick segue… Fox News’ political Twitter feed needs to declare independence from hackers:

null

*****
And there are more where those came from. What’s strange is that as of this morning those Tweets haven’t been taken down.

It looks as if Fox News lost access to the site on June 30th — at least that’s the last time a “serious” news item was posted, and then somebody hacked in after that. But it’s weird that Twitter hasn’t removed them. Maybe the Secret Service is investigating and didn’t want them taken down yet. Who knows. In any case, enjoy your well-deserved cavity search, Mr. Hacker!

All I know is that seeing the words “President Joe Biden” isn’t the best way to start a morning.

Oh well. At least this “hack” didn’t involve a picture of Anthony Weiner’s johnson.

Update: Fox News released a statement on the hacking.

    No doubt, the libs / socialists / regressives will be preparing to go into hiding so as to continue unseen their push for Hoax and Chains ! They won`t stop just because they were swept from public view ! The left will blame and ridicule the voters for being too stupid to realize the great good they`re gonna miss out on ! The left will blame the right for playing dirty politics and insist on investigations and probes into Republican malfeasance ! AND LOTS of WHINING !!

    The right, we Christian Conservative Tea Partiers will be congratulating our newly elected majorities in both houses of congress and our new P and VP as well as more Con. R state Govs and Legs. and pushing them all to pick their best avail. support teams and staffs so as to be ready to hit the ground running on 1-22-13, fully prepared to have everyone confirmed at the earliest possible date, and ready to return this greatest of all nations EVER to its conservative constitutional purposes and limitations ! We WILL remind them frequently what we elected them to do !

    Throw in some great Thanksgiving get togethers, the best Christmas season in years and News Years celebrations full of hope for a rejuvenated American Spirit, we are gonna be Jammin` !!

    What are YOU planning to do, Bill G?

    I suppose a Secret Service investigation would depend on if the stupid joke is deemed a threat or not. If it was a Tea Partier we'll know quickly, and if the hacker is a lefty, we won't find out about it on CNN, MSNBC or any of the networks.

    But I guess it was considered threat-worthy, because the Secret Service WILL investigate the Twitter hack:

    The catch is they have to report their findings in 140 characters or less.

    Doug,

    My reply to Bil G. has disappeared, a long one and one of my best (I thought) ! That makes 2 in 2 days ! They even disappeared from my Intense Debate "comment stream" page. This is intollerable ! Can you check it out please ? Thanks !

    Doug,

    Thank you so very much ! You are the man !

    Thanks for the link, Doug ! It seems the party that initially took credit for the hack, ScriptKiddies, is at least "loosely connected" to Anonymous, well known hackers. A rep. of SK sees FOX`s reporting a joke, telling me they are a leftist bunch. Still possible there`s a Soros connection !

    Thanks Reaganite! Same to you and yours.

    Welcome! I didn't have much better to do while sitting in a waiting room for a good part of the day anyway.

    I do hope it`s worth the wait !;-)

    Posts disappear occasionally, for some reason, but they are still showing on my comment page. Do you have any idea why they`d vanish from both ?
    (Is it a conspiracy ?)
