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

  • Well, I’m on the phone with my computer security service, and as I understand it someone compromised my IP address and is using it to download child pornography. I might just be a random target. But this could be an attempt to Qanon me. It’s an ugly world out there.


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.”

  1. Alex Jones is going to need to up his game if he wants to keep up with the conspiracy theories on the modern left.

  2. This smells of Joy Reid who blamed hackers for racist comments on her computer.
    When dems get caught doing something, it’s always someone else’s fault.

  3. Preemptive excusionaring?
    sounds like it. I mean, who does not have his own PC’s IT manager??

  4. Ip address cannot be “compromised” as the IP is just a number to identify the system connected to a local network. The computer itself may be hacked but not the IP address.

  5. The Times on it…?

    Aren’t you meant to go to contact authorities…?

    Maybe, authorities with be contacting him 🤔

    1. I hope authorities send a forensic team to investigate this. Anyone trafficking in this horror will go to prison…
