The Washington Hacks

It's another fake news alert:
The Post story was titled, “Russian hackers penetrated U.S. electricity grid through a utility in Vermont, officials say.”
The story said, “A code associated with the Russian hacking operation dubbed Grizzly Steppe by the Obama administration has been detected within the system of a Vermont utility, according to U.S. officials.”

The Post published the story before being able to get comment from the two utility companies in Vermont. The Burlington Electric Department would end up putting out a statement showing the premise of The Washington Post story as being untrue.
That never stopped "real" reporters before...
