Fox News' political Twitter account appears to have been hacked.

Tweets coming from the FoxNewsPolitics account early Monday have been reporting the death of President Barack Obama.

A series of six tweets say that Obama was assassinated in Iowa and the shooter is unknown.

Fox's political Twitter account has more than 34,000 followers.

Fox News representatives didn't immediately return a request for
comment.

    From the response of some, is precisely why cloning is detrimental to the existence of mankind. No logical thinking is necessary, its the dominoes effect. There is hope for these lost souls.

    Libtards! Can't debate and win with facts so they have to resort to smudging and smearing with illegal activities such as hacking the number one news source in America.

      What a waster of words. The valueless cretins of the repubulicon party deserve to swim in boiling vats of oil for the crimes they have perpetuated on America. Go tell your lies elsewhere.

        Valueless cretins? Lets see. . . . Clinton didn't have sex with that woman. Weiner didn't send nude photos to a young girl. Ted Kennedy didn't let a woman drown in a river. John Edwards didn't cheat on his cancer stricken wife and lie about it for years. John Kerry didn't lay blame and accuse fellow vets of killing children in Viet Nam. John Kennedy didn't have multiple illicit affairs. Ohhh, wait! Yes they did do these things! And all lied about it.

    Back when Albert Gore invented the internet, there was a code enforcement named "crimes against intelligent equipment." This was the term used before the term "hacker." I do not know how to lay this on you, but someone who knowingly participates in the "hack" is considered as guilty as the individual that did the deed. My point is this: I make this blog, to perhaps keep people from commenting about it. I have no dog in this race, and will not. When someone sends a post or blog about the death of a President, it is a crime! When you participate, by doing this, you are not a victim. That is that! Word!

    Many of you seem to be defending an illegal act. A U.S. business gets attacked, and instead of being outraged by the attack, you justify it because you don't believe the business should exist. There are polls taken every night to see whether these businesses should exist, and maybe you votes no by watching something else, but there is plenty of people that vote yes to this channel by watching. These differences in opinion (free speech) are what make this country great, and you want to destroy it. I don't watch any of these news channels (I don't have cable), but I do look at as many different news sites as I can so I can see what all sides are saying.

      Hacking is against the law, and those committing the crime should be punished accordingly. That said, it couldn't have happened to a more deserving company. Bald faced liars one and all.

        Showing the opposite side of an argument that all other media ignores is lying? I'm confused. I don't care to watch the network, but come on now, you honestly think that CNN, MSNBC, Tallahassee Democrat, USA Today are open to multiple opinions? You have dementia.

        No, I'm pretty sure the lousy president we currently hae in office is the reason for most of the country's woes. He was an unproven leader and exempted himself from decision making while as junior senator and this lack of leadership has been very apparent the last few years. I just hope those who were swayed by his smooth rhetoric are smarter next election. Barack's ideas are not what the country needs right now.
