Spinwatch’s RSS feed hacked

The RSS feed of Spinwatch has been hacked. The title of the feed shown in Bloglines has been replaced by “Hacked by …” and the individual posts are not accessible via the feed. Hope they straighten things out soon. In fact, I remember seeing a note at the bottom of Spinwatch’s site a few weeks back that claimed it had been hacked, so obviously someone is keen to obstruct their news distribution.

Spinwatch is a web site researching “the PR industry, corporate PR and lobbying, front groups, government spin, propaganda and other tactics used by powerful groups to manipulate media, public policy debate and public opinion”.

UPDATE: The problem has been solved and the RSS feed is working properly again. The four most recent posts are accessible, but older posts have not been restored.
