Most news station headquarters in New York have building-spanning tickers blasting the breaking news of the day to the street. And recently, some resourceful soul decided to bring the real “fair and balanced” reporting to said ticker, hacking into the mainframe and broadcasting the truth. Some other people with a video camera took the train up to Rockefeller Center to capture the magic, which in all-caps displays such items as “Our country is not broke” and “We are being lied to.”
Check out the video:

The message from hiropro999, who uploaded the video, goes as follows:
Last night I hacked into the FoxNews news ticker on 6th avenue in NYC.
Here’s the video. If you’d like to know why, just read the message in the hack.
I accessed the Fox ticker basically to get your attention. Also because Fox deserves it: they’re the 24/7 mouthpiece of the right wing. They are huge perpetrators of the big lie.
This country isn’t broke. Question is: where is the money going?
Americans have a right to know their pockets are being fleeced by corporations and tax breaks for the ultra-wealthy and we can no longer tolerate the deceit FoxNews is perpetuating.
For the record, I am not connected to Anonymous or any of the recent attacks on the PSN, PBS, Nasdaq or So-net.
We are being lied to and you cannot stop Americans from fighting for the truth. Sorry my friend is somewhat annoyingly enthusiastic in the video but it’s one of the best hacks in recent memory so cut her a break.
For those who think this is fake and that the sign can not play color. http://bit.ly/mRfOUD
