FCC Wants New Prez Emergency Alert

7

obamaThe Federal Communications Commission wants the president to be able to address the nation at a moment’s notice. In the happy event that there is massive terrorist threat that poses a danger to the entire country, our current emergency alert is apparently insufficient. As a result, the FCC is overhauling the Emergency Alert System so that the commander-in-chief can address the entire nation at a flip of a switch.

Currently, the emergency system does not allow for emergency alerts at the national level.

On Tuesday, the FCC will officially propose a new code that will allow the president to instantly address the county in case of a national emergency. It claims the system update will be “saving human lives, reducing injuries, mitigating property damage, and minimizing the disruption of the national economy.”¬†However, it will also cost as much as $13.6 million to update. The public has 30 days to comment on the proposal.¬†Read more at The Hill.

  1. “In the happy event that there is massive terrorist threat that poses a danger to the entire country”

    “Happy event”??? Is this a typo by Matzav? Is this meant to be cute? How can a terrorist threat be a happy one? All that apologizing for that Arab kid must have worn off on you.

  2. “In the happy event that there is massive terrorist threat that poses a danger to the entire country”… HAPPY? Am I misreading something?

  3. To me this means more than what it appears on surface. The alert system will streamline all the way from televisions, to computers, to cellphones, to radio communications. That means a little bit of code will be written to hijack all forms of communication in the name of national security. What will happen if there was a smart hacker that can use this new system to send false messages to the public? Or maybe even going as far as to say a hacker (can be foreign or domestic or federal government or CIA or black ops or corporations, etc.) will use said code to shut down certain output electronic devices connected to other systems. In other words this is too much power for any one person to have regardless of their standing in the United States.
