Fox News Twitter Hack Sounds An Awful Lot Like A Fox Nation Resident

As I’m sure many of you have seen, the Twitter accounts for Fox News Politics was apparently hacked to release tweets saying that President Obama had been assassinated. While the nature of the hack is utterly tasteless and I hope that the Secret Service catches the clown(s) that did it, I also have to point out that such talk would fit right in almost anywhere bearing Fox News’ brand.

Over the years, Newshounds has mounted quite a collection of violent rhetoric as well as overt or implied threats from Fox News hosts and contributors, as well as viewers via Fox Nation. Just last week, a Fox Business producer edited an Imus in the Morning B-roll video to show a soldier seemingly taking aim with his rifle directly at President Obama.
