The Truth Is Out There
You might be saying to yourself, "of course it was fake" but think about it. KRTV in Great Falls, Montana broadcast the Emergency Alert System noise with a message about the dead coming to life. You can tell the voice is garbled and definitely not one of authority but not everyone was able to pick up on that. In fact, the local newspaper reported four people called the police to ask if it was true. The station issued a statement saying, "Someone apparently hacked into the Emergency Alert System and announced on KRTV and the CW that there was an emergency in several Montana counties. This message did not originate from KRTV, and there is no emergency. Our engineers are investigating to determine what happened and if it affected other media outlets." Honestly, I'm pretty annoyed at these people. While it was a fun idea, using the EAS is akin to crying wolf. When the zombie apocalypse does happen, no one is going to believe it.
