‘Cannot say with certitude’ who hacked AP; David Sirota, Anthony Weiner hardest hit


As Twitchy reported, the Associated Press’ Twitter account was hacked today. The Dow plummeted moments after the hacked tweet, which claimed reports of explosions at the White House, went out. Hilarity, of course, ensued as Twitter users began to mock the AP.

Hardest hit? David Sirota and Anthony Weiner. Remember, Salon’s David Sirota hoped the Boston bombers would be “white males.” And disgraced junk-tweeter Anthony Weiner needs no further introduction. Take it away, Twitter!

Ouch! That burns, doesn’t it, Anthony Weiner? Ah, hindsight!


Wow: Dow briefly tanks after AP’s Twitter account hacked, reports explosions at WH [pic]

Oof: AP’s Twitter account hacked, reports ‘two explosions in the White House’; Update: Account suspended

Sirota not alone: Boston bombing suspect ID’d as ‘dark-skinned male’; Gwen Ifill, libs go nuts

    I think I read this wrong. I thought the headline said the AP was full of HACKS, to which I surmised, “Well, yeah.”

    The last comment, “Ouch! That burns, doesn’t it, Anthony Weiner? Ah, hindsight!” Do you really want to use words like “hindsight & burn” when the Weiner already posted his frontside?

      That comment was the funniest thing about this post – it made me laugh out loud.
