Sarah Palin supporters hack Twitter feed of company that posted her emails for msnbc.com
MSNBC ^ | 6/12/11 | Bill Dedman

Posted on 06/12/2011 10:13:17 PM PDT by ruralvoter

The Twitter feed of the company that put online 24,000 pages of Sarah Palin's emails for msnbc.com was hacked over the weekend, with vandals posting a series of pro-Palin and anti-Obama messages.

Among the tweets:

* Emails: Gov. Palin a Hard-Working Public Servant * Email Witch-hunt Backfires * Weiner's America Or Palin's America - That Is The 2012 Choice

"It appears that there is a 'hole' in one of the applications (we think Facebook) that links to Twitter," Art Crivella, founder and CEO of the company, Crivella West, told msnbc.com Sunday evening. "We've disabled them and mopped up the bile and changed all the passwords."

disagreeing civilly with a liberal is hate speech
disagreeing with a conservative with death threats is free speech

No they are not certain who posted the messages. It could be considered unprofessional for them to make this presumption in the article or the headline.

Are they 100% sure it was a 'hack' or are they just unaware of using hash tags on topics and supporters were tagging them in notes?

Palin Supporters did this? Sure about that?

Heretofore, I thought the lamestream said we were all stupid, country-bumpkin idiots.

I would not put it past them to have done it themselves so as to blame “Palin supporters. Since they couldn’t find any dirt in the emails, they create a fake controversy to at least try to make “Palin supporters” look bad.

Sarah Palin supporters hack Twitter feed


Compare that language to any assault, riot, rape, shooting, anywhere where they report that it was ‘unknown angry youths’. You see, the 'facts' are too controversial.

America is completely ‘out of control’. Liberals are just childishly ridiculous.

(you have to wonder if they ever look in the mirror and think...what the hell am i doing?)

Crivella himself says it is NOT a hack:

"It appears that in this case 'hacking' means sending out spam tweets pretending to be us. I think real hackers might be offended."

“Emails: Gov. Palin a Hard-Working Public Servant * Email Witch-hunt Backfires”

“We’ve disabled them and mopped up the bile and changed all the passwords.”

Yes, horrendous bile. It makes my eyes bleed just reading the words. “Palin a Hard Working Public Servant?” Why, that’s the equivalent of the F-word to liberals. Well, an F-word that’s actually bad, since a glimpse at liberal logs suggests the actual F-word is just for normal conversation that isn’t childish to use in the slightest.

Like they care about professionalism. It is not like they will be now going after Barky’s school grades/financial records or unearthing why the 1st wookie gave up her law license.

Maybe I'm wrong, but couldn't anybody log into their Twitter acct and pretend to be reading the emails and tweet to MSNBC that they found an email where Palin knew Obama when he was a commie in Russia and shot Jews in the head and no one would know the difference? Do they only accept tweets from known MSNBC tweeters? They were the ones asking for volunteer hacks to read and report on the emails. You get what you get.

This is far from hacking.

More likely it was Sarah haters that hacked and posted because they were angry that msnbc hadn’t done enough to forge e-mails that could prove damageing to Sarah.

Much more than mere dereliction of duty ...

Media Malpractice!

Costing us trillions.

Surely some attorney out there is willing and able to file a class-action lawsuit against the major media outlets for the damages they have caused us.
