Not sure of the bias of this video...
But pretty scary to think about when it comes censorship.

Wow, conspiracy much? The government has had this capability since the 1950's...this is just the first time they've tested it. It's the exact same system the "Gubment" uses to broadcast weather alerts on a local basis. Scary! It's designed for one thing - to broadcast emergency messages. Hell, the system's components for the most part can't display a message longer than 2 minutes anyway - some takeover!

As for why it was shortened, it wasn't because FEMA was worried the public would distrust them - it was because they knew that the general public is a drooling mass of idiots that would freak out over nothing and start looting at the first hint of a problem.

Federal Government doesn't need this.  They never have, they never will.  If its an emergency, local governments/channels can handle it.
