FCC Reminds Broadcasters of Need to Comply With Emergency Alert System After Facebook Bans Trump

Speculation advisory related to storming of Capitol building.

In an announcement made on the same day Facebook and Instagram “indefinitely” banned President Trump, the FCC reminded broadcasters of their legal obligation to comply with relaying messages via the Emergency Alert System.

The Emergency Alert System is overseen by the federal government and allows the president to address the nation via all television and radio stations in the event of a national emergency. Broadcasters are required by law to cut into their programming and relay emergency messages.

An advisory which appeared on the official FCC website today titled ‘Enforcement Bureau Reminds EAS Participants of Compliance Obligations’ has raised eyebrows given that it was posted less than 24 hours after Trump supporters stormed the Capitol building in Washington DC, prompting a National Guard response.

“The Enforcement Bureau of the Federal Communications Commission (Commission or FCC) issues this Enforcement Advisory to remind broadcasters, cable television operators, wireless cable operators, wireline video service providers, satellite digital audio radio service providers, and direct broadcast satellite providers (EAS Participants) of their obligation to comply with the EAS rules, including ensuring that EAS alerts are accessible to persons with disabilities,” states the advisory.

Respondents to a Twitter thread about the EAS also noted that the system had been tested in both New York and Alabama earlier today.

Whether the reminder had anything to do with President Trump being suspended for 12 hours by Twitter or banned “indefinitely” by Facebook and Instagram isn’t known.

However, it would be naive to think that the announcement doesn’t have something to do with yesterday’s events.

“I’m in Trouble!” Biden Panics at Not Being Able to Find His Mask

Finds it in his pocket after first bizarrely looking through a folder.

Joe Biden was caught in yet another embarrassing public gaffe as he panicked about losing his face mask during a speech to supporters in Georgia.

Biden was seen wearing his mask before he delivered the remarks but maybe should have kept it on given that he coughed and spluttered at several moments throughout his 20 minute address.

When Biden invited Democrat Sens. Raphael Warnock and Jon Ossoff to join him on stage, the first lady pointed at her own mask in an effort to remind Biden to put his back on.

However, this didn’t happen because Biden spent the next minute fumbling around trying to find the object without success, repeatedly flipping through a folder of notes to no avail.

“I’m looking for my mask. I’m in trouble,” Biden said to the crowd as a staffer got on stage to give him one while Warnock and Ossoff tried to distract the crowd.

Biden finally found his own mask in his pocket, having previously failed to check what would have been the obvious place to look, before continuing with the event.

Despite the fact that the CDC updated its advice to say that vaccinated Americans don’t need to wear masks outdoors, Biden’s entire team is still doing so, once again underscoring how the face covering is purely a political symbol.

34 Million Fewer People Watched Biden Speech Compared to Trump’s First SOTU

Ratings show just 11.6 million watched Biden’s address to Congress.

34 million fewer people watched Joe Biden’s speech last night compared to Donald Trump’s first State of the Union address.

Ratings show that 11.6 million watched Biden’s speech compared to 45.6 million who watched Trump’s first address to Congress in 2018.

The lowest number of Americans who watched a Trump State of the Union throughout his term in office was 37 million.

Biden barely managed to beat the viewership for this year’s Oscars (9.8 million), even though that set a new record low for the Academy Awards

Biden’s speeches and public appearances have become notorious for their poor ratings and lack of engagement, unless you’re talking about the overwhelming number of people who downvote videos on the official White House YouTube channel.

As a reminder, Biden officially received 81 million votes during the presidential election, the most a presidential candidate has ever received and over 11 million more than Barack Obama achieved in 2008.

Respondents to the announcement of the viewing figures expressed their surprise, given Biden’s overwhelming ‘popularity’ in 2020.

“Most popular president of all time,” commented one.

“Just wait, Dominion is finding more viewers as we tweet,” joked another.

“Biden’s speech to Congress was not only boring, but the chamber was mostly empty. Even the Democrats who showed up couldn’t stay awake,” remarked another.

Journalist Slammed For Paying Home Visit to Utah Paramedic Who Donated $10 to Kyle Rittenhouse

Twitter takes zero action against reporter who doxxed private citizen.

A journalist was roundly condemned after visiting the home of a paramedic in Utah who donated $10 to Kyle Rittenhouse’s legal defense fund, with many asking why posting images of the man’s home didn’t violate Twitter’s policy on doxxing and harassment.

The incident occurred after the Guardian newspaper published the names of individuals who had donated to Rittenhouse following a data breach from a Christian crowdfunding website.

Among those names was West Valley City, Utah paramedic Craig Shepherd, who immediately became the target of an attempt by ABC4 reporter Jason Nguyen to further expose his identity.

“A Utah paramedic donated to the defense fund of Kyle Rittenhouse. It was first reported in the @guardian this morning,” tweeted Nguyen, claiming, “I tried to get the paramedics side of things.”

In trying to “get the paramedics side of things,” Nguyen tweeted a photo of Shepherd’s front door, making his location easily discoverable.

Numerous respondents immediately accused Nguyen as hiding behind journalism as an excuse to carry out stalking, harassment and doxxing.

Others pointed out that despite Twitter repeatedly suspending or banning conservative media outlets like Project Veritas for doorstepping public officials and other prominent figures, they took no action whatsoever against Nguyen for doxxing Craig Shepherd.

Indeed, when the list of names was leaked, Twitter chose to make the issue one of its top trending subjects.

Thanks to Nguyen’s brave reporting, West Valley City Fire Department is now conducting an investigation into Shepherd’s $10 donation and has placed him on administrative leave, with his job now in jeopardy.

Predictably, Nguyen chose to ignore the most hard hitting criticism and only respond to an angry troll to make himself appear as the victim while using the late death of his mother as a shield for criticism.

As Glenn Greenwald highlighted, Nguyen is following in the fine tradition of CNN, who doorstepped and harassed an elderly lady in 2018 for contributing to a pro-Trump Facebook page.

Is it any wonder why trust in media is so low and disgust for journalists so high when their primary purpose now appears to revolve around destroying people’s lives for the sin of expressing dissident opinions?
