FOX News Tweets Obama's Death

When I saw those tweets, my heart began to race and tears immediately came to my eyes.  Obama is not my leader, but as the first African American president, he has come to mean a lot to the children of the African Diaspora.  I immediately turned on the television and put it on CNN, a far more credible news station to learn that there was no discussion about this.  I am going to give Fox the benefit of the doubt it does not deserve, and  assume that they have been hacked.  If not, it was the most tasteless joke I have ever seen.  Either way, they need to make some kind of public announcement that comes with an apology. 

Update: Fox has announced that their twitter feed has been hacked and "regrets any distress the false tweets may have created".
