Obama Dead - Faux News

Uploaded by on 4 Jul 2011

The President is Dead! - Well, President Obama is alive and well - but a few concerned internet viewers may have believed the story when a US broadcaster fell victim to a hacker attack. The group broke into Fox's twitter account and entered the hoax news that Barack Obama had been assassinated and Joe Biden had stepped into the job. The hoax 'tweets' said the President was shot twice while campaigning for re-election, when he was, in fact, in the White House. A spokesperson for the hacker group called "script-kiddies" said Fox was targeted because they thought their net-security would be 'as much of a joke as their news'.
