Conservative Website ‘Newsbusters’ Was Hacked

Today, while trying to pull up a story on the conservative media criticism site Newsbusters, we encountered a rather strange phenomenon – namely, that the site didn’t look quite…like itself. How so? Look at the following images:

 

 
Either someone at the Newsbusters staff A) spontaneously forgot everything they know about web design and B) really loves Oprah, or the site appears to have been hacked and plastered with images of the popular talk show host. We will keep our eyes peeled for more on this story. Unfortunately, this is not the first time something like this has happened.

UPDATE: Look at these wildly incongruous headlines that have appeared on the site.

UPDATE II: Newsbusters has confirmed the hack.

The site has since been taken offline.

UPDATE III: The site is back, this time clear of Oprah pictures and headlines.
