Don't believe Fox News
No worries, folks: Barack Obama is still the leader of the United States, much to the disappointment of Fox News followers.

The Wall Street Journal reported this morning that some idiot hackers thought they'd have a little fun with Fox News and give us another reason not to believe whatever the conservative news program tells us.

The hackers hijacked Fox's Twitter account, with its 37,500 followers, and tweeted the following Fourth of July message: Obama was "shot twice at Ross' restaurant in Iowa" in "the lower pelvic area and neck" and "bled out."

The hackers also sent out a "best regards to the Obama family" message before changing the password so the news station couldn't immediately fix the error, according to news reports.

Fox News called the tweets "malicious" and "false."
