+ - Fox News Report Retaliation for "Hacking"?

Submitted by
ReK_42 writes "Am I the only one who thinks that this report might be related to the Fox FTP incident less than a week ago?
The Fox account of the incident states "No user information, e-mail addresses or other personal data were ever comprised." However, according to the blogger linked in the above /. article:

"...later published on Slashdot exposed sensitive content to thousands of members of the public today.
The data included names, phone numbers, and email addresses of at least 1.5 million people."
And to take a 3rd, independant source as confirmation, The Register has this to say:

"...the FTP account that was discovered provided access to records for around 1.5 million individuals, along with access to sensitive ZDNet business documents."
I say Fox has pointed the FUD-guns at Anonymous because of this incident.
Let's get some free (liberal, as Fox would call it) media aware of this and point the truth guns right back at Fox.
