‘60 Minutes,’ ‘48 Hours’ Twitter Accounts Hacked
Perennial Loser Candidate and Ex Con Lyndon LaRouche makes the news again, so it’s necessary once more to point out that he’s a cult leader, ex con, and hatemonger. See here, here, here, here, and here.
The Twitter accounts of CBS’ 60 Minutes and 48 Hours have been compromised, with the hacker or hackers issuing tweets claiming that President Barack Obama is “shamelessly in bed with Al-Qaeda.”
The tweet includes a link to a post dated Dec. 4, 2012, on larouchepac.com, a website that promotes the ideas of controversial presidential candidate Lyndon Larouche.
“Exclusive: Terror is striking the #USA and #Obama is Shamelessly in Bed with Al-Qaeda,” the tweet — published around 12:30 p.m. PT to 60 Minutes’ twitter feed and then re-tweeted on 48 Hours’ feed — reads.
Several minutes later, 48 Hours issued a tweet reading, “Our #48hours account has been compromised. We are working with Twitter to resolve the issue.”
CBS News also tweeted from its account, “We have experienced problems on Twitter accounts of #60Minutes & @48Hours; We apologize for the inconvenience; Twitter is resolving issues.”
60 Minutes’ account later said it had been “compromised.” The hacker’s tweet finally came down at 1:15 p.m. PT.
