This afternoon some alarming news emanated from the Associated Press' Twitter account that stated the White House had been bombed and President Obama had been injured.






With recent events, this news spread across the web via social media within minutes. Fortunately, the report was 100% false - the President and the White House are safe and sound.


AP reporter Matt Moore took to his Twitter account to debunk the false report and confirm that the trusted news organization's Twitter account had indeed been hacked. The official source of the hack is unknown, but the hacker group Syrian Electronic Army appears to be claiming responsibility.
