The Twitter feeds of “60 Minutes,” CBS Denver and “48 Hours” all appeared to have been hacked Saturday afternoon, with CBS officially announcing the problem on its feed.

CBS4 in Denver, Colo., also retweeted at least one message from the hacked “60 Minutes” account, claiming that President Obama is “shamelessly in bed with Al-Qaeda” and linking to Lyndon LaRouche’s political action committee.

LOL LYNDON LAROUCHE apparently has sway outside of small liberal art college campuses & your town’s resident political headcase. @60minutes
