CEO of News Corp Rupert Murdoch (aka the "Lord Voldemort" of media moguls) posted a very controversial message on Friday, saying that all Muslims should be held responsible for the actions of Islamic extremists.

He also added that "political correctness makes for denial and hypocrisy."



His tweets come just a few days after the terror attack on Charlie Hebdo in Paris.

Needless to say, this statement did not go over well with people online, especially the 23 percent of the world's population whom he just accused of terrorism.

But over the weekend, "Harry Potter" author J.K. Rowling came to their defense, firing back at Murdoch with this absolutely perfect Tweet.



She also took responsibility for the Spanish Inquisition, all Christian fundamentalist violence and televangelist Jim Bakker.

Social media accounts belonging the United States Central Command were hacked on Monday by a group claiming to be ISIS sympathizers.

The attack comes at the same time that President Obama is promoting his plans to bolster cybersecurity.

The hackers posted a number of eerie warnings on the Twitter account @CENTCOM, which has since been suspended. They changed the profile images to those in the photo above with the words "CyberCaliphate" and "I love you ISIS."

"AMERICAN SOLDIERS, WE ARE COMING, WATCH YOUR BACK. ISIS," they wrote. They also posted spreadsheets with contact info for retired U.S. army generals and maps of North Korea and China. Nothing posted was classified, however, and it is all available publicly online.

Their YouTube account was compromised as well with two new videos added called "Flames of War ISIS Video" and "O Soldiers of Truth Go Forth," according to Reuters.

"We can confirm that the U.S. Central Command's Twitter and YouTube accounts were compromised earlier today. We are taking appropriate measures to address the matter," Centcom said in a statement.

Another tweet linked to the following message on Pastbin:

"While the US and its satellites kill our brothers in Syria, Iraq and Afghanistan we broke into your networks and personal devices and know everything about you," they wrote. "You'll see no mercy infidels. ISIS is already here, we are in your PCs, in each military base. With Allah's permission we are in CENTCOM now. We won't stop! We know everything about you, your wives and children. U.S. soldiers! We're watching you!"

Omaha based news station KETV decided to take advantage of the incredibly unfortunate similaries between the real-life situation of Mayasia Airlines flight MH370 and the fictional series "Lost" and make a promotion out of it.

Lost is a fictional television show with polar bears, smoke monsters, and mysterious deities on a tropical island, while the 239 people on MH370 are still missing or likely dead. Their families and loved ones are distraught with grief, and authorities are no closer to finding the plane or any remains in the Indian Ocean almost two weeks after it disappeared.

Even comedian Paul Scheer, who hosted the Lost 10-year reunion panel at the Paley Center Sunday night, asked the audience to refrain from asking the show's creators and actors about MH370.

KETV has since deleted the inconsiderate tweet.

Transgender writer and activist Janet Mock recently went on the air with resident poopstain extraordinaire Pierce Morgan. After Morgan delivered a string of backhanded compliments and proved that he knew virtually nothing about the Trans community (while simultaneously cutting her off at every point), Mock took to social media to give him the what for.

BBC Facebook Burns Commenter For Questioning Validity of News Story

In most situations, it's rational for a commenter to question the Facebook publications on the legitimacy of a news story. Sites try to piggy-back on any trending topic and add their own voice.

But, when the site is actually A NEWS SOURCE, perhaps you should leave your comments to yourself.
