White House Press Corps Twitter Hijacked, Hacker Upset with News Organizations
Untrustworthy: New Yorker, Washington Post, Politico, NY Daily News and WSJ
The Twitter account and the website of the White House Press Corps appear to have been hijacked by a hacker who’s upset with the media organizations that attended the off-the-record meetings with Attorney General Eric Holder.“RESOLVED: Any Member of any ‘News’ Organization that met with AG Holder today is no longer to be trusted as a valid news source,” one tweet reads.
“UNTRUSTWORTHY: New Yorker, Washington Post, Politico, New York Daily News, Wall Street Journal — attended Thursday's meeting with Holder,” the hacker added.
According to the Huffington Post, which first spotted the incident, the White House Press Corps is an independent entity that provides information and commentary on the relationship between the press and the White House.
They’re not associated with the White House Correspondents’ Association.
