Hacked: CBS’ ‘60 Minutes,’ ‘48 Hours’ Twitter accounts compromised


60 Minutes Hacked

The Twitter feeds of “60 Minutes,” CBS Denver and “48 Hours” all appeared to have been hacked Saturday afternoon, with CBS officially announcing the problem on its feed.


CBS4 in Denver, Colo., also retweeted at least one message from the hacked “60 Minutes” account, claiming that President Obama is “shamelessly in bed with Al-Qaeda” and linking to Lyndon LaRouche’s political action committee.

CBS Denver hacked

  • waltermitty2012

    After the election, 60 Minutes should have changed their password from “Obama2008” to “Obama2012.”

    • BlahBlah

      After this they will just stick to foolproof “Obama1234”.

      • LinTaylor

        Weird, that’s the same combination on my luggage!

        • BlahBlah

          Well that explains the whips, 50 Shades of Gray and some old shoe laces that I thought someone planted in my luggage. I thought I was hiding it well. :/

          • Miss Clairee

            Hahahahahahahha…ha…ha….audible snort! Bazinga! You win!

    • Riley Secrist

      You, sir, win this thread.

  • Tom Anderson

    Now they have gotten a little taste of what conservative sites have been dealing with for years. Wonder how they like it?

      When crap like this happens to conservatives, it’s well deserved… when it happens to them, it’s a crime. The lamestream media are evil.

      • Tom Anderson

        Funny how that works aint it? LOL

  • Garth Haycock

    “WARNING: Do *NOT* click on any of the links tweeted by currently-compromised CBS accounts.”

    In other words, I’ll just do what I usually do when the MSM reports anything.

  • DurkaDurka

    Strange, we got more accurate news from the hack than from them.

  • Ginger Whetstine

    Hacks were hacked…………… lmao. Sorry but how could they tell, did it finally say something intelligent on their twitter feed? Or did they try to post their pics of dinner and it couldn’t go thru….. seriously, useless people having useless twitter comments suddenly claim to be “hacked” … I find myself not actually caring.

  • BadGirloftheNorth

    So, that means they are telling the truth now??

    • http://twitter.com/thetugboatphil TugboatPhil

      That’s what I was wondering. Are they tweeting out real news now? What gave them away?

  • Frank Drebin

    In a related story, ‘Time’ has reportedly upgraded their internet security…

  • descolada9

    People were able to tell a diff?

  • Steve_J

    Oh, hacked? I saw “Sixty Minutes” and thought it said hacks.

  • 1azuce

    This will traced back to Dan Rather, or his source at the county fair.

    • gekkobear

      What’s the frequency, Kenneth?

  • julito77

    Then the Twitter profile went crazy before the account was suspended tonight http://www.latinorebels.com/2013/04/20/hacked-tweets-continue-to-show-up-on-60-minutes-twitter-profile/

  • TheOriginalDonald

    I blame Phil Keoghan. Dude is probably sick and tired of The Amazing Race being pushed back because CBS NEEDS to air a rerun of 3600 Seconds
