New York Times Columnist Paul Krugman Claims Hackers Planted Child P-rn on his IP Address?

By Mike Cernovich 10 Comments

New York Time columunist Paul Krugman has posted what one can only consider a highly unusual Tweet:

I’ve seen a lot in my life – stuff I hope others don’t.

Rarely am I in AWE….. and BEWILDERED

This tweet….. I can’t stop looking at it.

It makes absolutely no sense to make something like this public.

It is of course possible that someone hacked his computer and used it as a server for illegal conduct. That does happen. But man oh man, why post something like that at this phase?

Utterly incomprehensible.

Update: “The Times is now on the case.”

The Times is now on the case.

Deleted original tweet. Times thinks it may have been a scam. Anyway, will have more security in future

Reactions to Paul Krugman’s Tweet

1998 Paul Krugman: "By 2005 or so, it will become clear that the Internet's impact on the economy has been no greater than the fax machine's."

It's absurd to think somebody would announce an attack on Twitter before it's been resolved. Anyone with any sense would not be worrying about optics this early. https://t.co/KHCXX92SNp
