Navy: China has not attacked U.S. aircraft carrier
The aircraft carrier George Washington has not been attacked, and World War III has not begun, despite what tweets from United Press International say, the Navy has confirmed.
The carrier is in port, not in the South China Sea.
"It started on Twitter, where six fake headlines were posted in about 10 minutes, starting about 1:20 p.m. Some of them were about the Federal Reserve; others contained a false report that the USS George Washington had been attacked."
Editors learned of the hacking when they noticed a "breaking news" banner for a false story about the Federal Reserve, the statement said. militarytimes
