NPR announced that its website and some of its Twitter accounts were hacked yesterday by the group known as the Syrian Electronic army. According to a statement released by NPR, “Several stories on the NPR website were defaced with headlines and text that said ‘Syrian Electronic Army Was Here’…Similar statements were posted on several NPR Twitter accounts. Those Twitter accounts have been addressed. We are closely monitoring the situation.” The Twitter page which allegedly belongs to the SEA tweeted: “We will not say why we attacked @NPR … They know the reason and that enough.” NPR recently won a Peabody Award in part for its coverage of the Syrian conflict.
