It's a hack. It's not funny. And why is it still up?

Sorry, but if the people who hacked Fox News' Twitter feed think this is funny, they should guess again:

This BBC story on the hack was timestamped 5:32 AM Eastern Time. It is 11:30 AM Eastern Time as I write this. Why is it still up? Fox News is aware that this Twitter feed was hacked. Why are there no later tweets disavowing these posts? And don't you think Twitter has an obligation to take these down?

(As always, Mr. Olbermann is the beacon of truth...even when it pertains to his bête noire.)

What if it said that Roger Ailes was beheaded by an incoming drag tiara and ninja feather boa?

I don't understand why you aren't amused by this. I'd think you'd be dancing in the streets at the possibility it might be true.

The Republican Party has boiled itself down to two ideas.

A) The Uber-Wealthy get to do whatever they want to the rest of us and/or the planet.

2) Racism.

Everything else is whitewash. It wasn't a hack they put it up there on purpose as a dog-whistle signal to their lackey class.
