A false tweet from the Associated Press indicated that the White House was the victim of two explosions this morning and that the President was injured.

This is not the case at all. President Barack Obama is fine.

Moreover, the AP confirms its Twitter feed was hacked.

Michelle Obama has been hacked in an alarming breach of security by unknown cyber-assailants who have disclosed the First Lady's financial information.

The hackers also obtained and published financial info on Beyonce, Jay-Z, Britney Spears, Donald Trump, Kim Kardashian and other celebrities.

A website run by the hackers has posted Michelle's credit report, social security number, phone numbers, banking and mortgage info and credit card details.

The website also hacked V.P. Joe Biden's history, but the info they were able to obtain was extremely limited in his case (unlike Michelle Obama's).

The Fox News Politics Twitter account reported this morning that President Obama had been shot twice in Iowa and killed. Not the case. Obama is fine.

The account was hacked shortly after midnight and the messages about the president were left around 3:00 a.m. The Tweets have since been deleted.

Mr. President

In total there were six Tweets that reported the death of the president, going so far as to wish Vice President Joe Biden luck in his assumed new role.

Unlike Rep. Anthony Weiner, who used the hacking defense after sending photos of his junk to women everywhere, it appears to be true in this case.

The account was hacked by "The Script Kiddies" (a slang term for beginner hackers), who vaguely aligned themselves with another hacking ring, Anonymous and changed the picture for the Fox account to their logo.

The "Script Kiddies" account has also been taken down.

According to Gawker, one of the members of "The Script Kiddies" says they are quite sophisticated despite the name, and chose to target Fox, "because we figured their security would be just as much of a joke as their reporting."

While hacking someone's Twitter - especially to report the president is dead - is reprehensible, we have to give them credit for that little dig.
