Fox News Politics Twitter Acct Hacked

Apparently over the weekend Fox News Politics Twitter account (@FoxNewsPolitics) was hacked and some outrageous comments were tweeted about President Obama being assassinated. The THiNK blog at Stony Brook University has reportedly been in contact with representatives of the group The Script Kiddies who claim, “Fox News was selected because we figured their security would be just as much of a joke as their reporting.”

Funny Secret Service Tweet About FOX

Apparently someone working for the Secret Service (the agency only joined the social media site Twitter earlier this month) thought they were on their personal account and made the following unofficial tweet about FOX:

The tweet was promptly deleted but Gawker and others were fast with the screen grab. Secret Service spokesman Edwin Donovan was equally swift on the draw with an official statement:

“An employee with access to the Secret Service’s Twitter account, who mistakenly believed they were on their personal account, posted an unapproved and inappropriate tweet,” Donovan said.

“The tweet contained no vulgarity, security or pertinent agency information. The tweet did not reflect the views of the U.S. Secret Service and it was immediately removed.”

“We apologize for this mistake, and the user no longer has access to our official account. Policies and practices which would have prevented this were not followed and will be reinforced for all account users.”

“We will ensure existing policies are strictly adhered to in order to prevent this mistake from being repeated, and we are conducting appropriate internal follow-up.”

Fox News’ Major Garrett Tweets Vegas Erotic Service Web Site

Copy/paste mistakes can be embarrassing… Last night, around the time of President Obama’s State of the Union speech, Fox News’ White House correspondent Major Garrett, apparently, made one of those mistakes. He intended to direct followers to excerpts of the speech, but sent people a NSFW site instead.

For those who don’t know, people on Twitter commonly use URL shorteners (i.e. bit.ly) when posting links due to the 140 character limit. Using the URL shortener, Garrett posted a link, but failed to see that the destination of the link was an erotic service in Las Vegas.

The tweet was quickly deleted and Garrett made these statements:

I apologize. Bit.ly turned my original link to SOTU excerpts to a soft-porn link. NOT my intention. whitehouse.blogs…. Wed 27 Jan 19:21

The link just posted works. Any frequent visitor here knows that is not my style. Sorry. Shld have caught it sooner. Wed 27 Jan 19:23

For those suckling snide syrup. I publicly acknowledged an innocent mistake and corrected it. If that’s not good enuf, take a hike. Wed 27 Jan 20:18

Garrett previously tweeted that Obama will be in Vegas in the near future. It will be interesting to see if he’ll be tagging along – perhaps he’s planning his trip and was checking out the local entertainment… What actually may have occurred is that a character or two was not pasted along with the rest of the bit.ly URL, so the URL posted was one that may have been created some time ago. It is funny that his tweet after the mistake had been realized was blaming bit.ly when it was clearly an error on his part.

Glenn Beck is a Waste of Twitter Space

Glenn Beck fans on Twitter are all euphoric over the fact that he’s really there, twittering his tweets with his tweeple.  So, what does @GlennBeck tweet? Apparently the “tweet” thing pisses him off, we’re all going to die, he likes fish, but doesn’t love it, has buyer’s remorse over furniture and wants to show people his meat…

And you thought that he acted crazy when he was on-topic! This man could be the “before” in a commercial promoting ADD medication…

@JesseWatters Fake?

It’s come to light that the @jessewatters account on Twitter may be fake and doesn’t actually belong to The O’Reilly Factor producer Jesse Watters, who Gawker.com is trying to interview. Amanda Carpenter (@amandacarpenter), a reporter for the Washington Times, posted the following:

@JesseWatters is a BOGUS account. This is not the real Factor producer Jesse Watters. Block this feed, do not follow. It is an imposter... I talked with the real Jesse Watters. He’d like to shut down the fake @JesseWatters. Help him by getting this message out. Tks!!

O’Reilly Producer Caught Lying

If you’re like me, you’re following Gawker.com and waiting to see if they ever catch up with The O’Reilly Factor producer, Jesse Watters, much less get to ask him the questions they’ve outlined on their site. Their questions cover the following topics.

On Twitter, Watters stated that he doesn’t consider what he does ambushing, but the evidence shows an entirely different story. These facts are from the horses ass mouth so-to-speak.

Exhibit 1) A blog post by Watters titled “Producer’s Notebook: Ambushed.”

Exhibit 2) O’Reilly interview with Watters – O’Reilly: “Back of the Book” segment tonight, ambush journalism… With us now “Factor” producer Jesse Watters, one of our field guides.

The questions also cover several instances where Watters position is, basically, they need to ambush because people refuse to come on the show. However, it’s hard for someone to accept an invitation when one isn’t offered.
