Cockburn has always been fond of a New York Post headline. Snappy, funny, eye-catching: that's why he reads the New York tabloid every morning. But today, even for Cockburn, some were too far.
In what appears to be a hacking, a scroll down the Post's Twitter feed at around 9 a.m. revealed the following headlines:
“Devine: We must murder Joe and Hunter Biden”
“We must assassinate AOC for America”
“Frank: I will beat up sorry ass Bergen bitches like Gottheimer and his family”
“Zeldin: I will rape and batter Hochul’s sorry ass pussy”

Cockburn has always been fond of a New York Post headline. Snappy, funny, eye-catching: that’s why he reads the New York tabloid every morning. But today, even for Cockburn, some were too far.

In what appears to be a hacking, a scroll down the Post’s Twitter feed at around 9 a.m. revealed the following headlines:

“Devine: We must murder Joe and Hunter Biden”

“We must assassinate AOC for America”

“Frank: I will beat up sorry ass Bergen bitches like Gottheimer and his family”

“Zeldin: I will rape and batter Hochul’s sorry ass pussy”

“Gov. Abbott: I will order border patrol to start slaughtering illegals”

“Rufo: We must destory [sic] and imprison Union teachers”

“Zeldin: Eric Adams is NYC’s fried chicken eating monkey”

Some people on Twitter don’t seem to mind too much. One said, “Kind of digging it. Make this platform fun again.” Another said this may be the work of “Twitter employees on their way out getting that last hurrah in.” The hack may come on the day of Elon Musk’s takeover of the social media giant — but that doesn’t account for the articles published on the Post website with those headlines.

Back in October 2020, the Post were banned from Twitter for publishing what proved to be accurate stories about Hunter Biden, his business dealings and his laptop. The reason Twitter gave for the ban was their suspicion that the Post‘s stories contained “hacked” materials. Fast forward two years: is Alexander Hamilton’s newspaper is on the receiving end of an actual hack?

The Post hastily deleted the articles and tweets — but screenshots are forever.
