Hackers Break Into Fox News Feed, Accusing Network Of “Trying to Kill Our Unions”

Hackers tapped into Fox News over the weekend and changed the news ticker, accusing the network of “trying to kill our unions” among other things. YouTube user hiropro999 says an activist group hacked into the Fox ticker “because Fox deserves it: they’re the 24/7 mouthpiece of the right wing. They are huge perpetuators of the big lie.”

Fox News, for its part, says that the video is fake. And you can definitely trust anything they say.

      @Thom Freeheart: It is gay news because Fox News is a right-wing mouth piece that perpetuates bigotry against anyone that is not a straight, rich, white male.

      It *is* a fake hack, unfortunately.
      However, the video has been seen by more people than whoever would have seen it outside the building at the time, had the hack been genuine. So in that sense, it doesn’t really matter…

      Would that this was real. The evil that is Faux News deserves to be hacked like this…

      I’d just love it if someone came up with some real dirt on Roger Ailes, chairman of Fox. Its a pity the rumour that Ailes told Judith Regan to lie to a federal investigation to protect Rudy Giuliani never materialized.

      @tjr101: If you claim about FOX being anti-gay is true, shouldn’t we be seeing those stories here instead of this one?

      Two things we know about Fox:
      1) Chief Ailes has installed bomb-resistant glass in his offices to protect himself from arch-enemies Al Qaeda & The Gayz.
      (clearly because we’re equally menacing)

      2) Fox is a for-profit org., so they’ll attract gay-friendly people with TV series & the anti’s via the “news.” More hysteria =more viewers = more dinero.
