The Wall Street Journal’s Facebook page was hacked this weekend and fake stories were published, Mediaite reported.

The two fake stories claimed Air Force One crashed and Joe Biden would issue a statement.

“#BREAKING: US Air Force One crash feared as air traffic controller loses contact with pilot over Russian air space.”

“#BREAKING: Vice President Joe Biden to address nation in 15 minutes.”

The Wall Street Journal said it unpublished the two posts.
