(Newser) – The New York Times website went dark today for about two hours, but all seems back to normal now. The site went down about 11:10am Eastern, and the newspaper issued a tweet blaming an "internal issue, which we expect to be resolved soon." The site came back online about 1:15 pm. Fox Business News quoted an anonymous source who blamed a cyber attack—the site has been hit previously—but the Times later reiterated that it was a routine maintenance issue gone awry. At least staffers kept a sense of humor about the whole thing.
