TV25 Lies

Post by R Bedell » Wed Oct 03, 2018 3:51 pm

On their FB Pages....
HEADS UP: You’ll be getting an alert from President Trump at 2:18 this afternoon, and you can't change your phone settings to ignore it.
FLAT OUT LIE. I got the alert and it wasn't from Pres Trump. It was a FEMA alert, similar to an Amber or Weather Alert.

Lies, Bias and Agendas are alive and well in Mid Michigan................Journalism is DEAD.

Been saying it for some time now.

The media loves cops and will side with them every chance they get because later they may get a “scoop” from a police department. They know if they make a police department upset, like hold it accountable to the public, they may not get those scoops anymore. #truestory

Sounds like an abusive relationship to me!

The news has one job, accuracy. They can’t even get that right.

Did the person who told you about the “President Trump Alert” have frosted-tipped hair and an underbite who says he’s “married to news”? Or was it the old guy whose lips are permanently pressed against cops’ derriere?

I'm starting to think HL101 wasn't satisfied with annoying everyone so he either (a) recruited a "friend" to join him in bashing his former employers or (b) HL101's split personality signed up for its own account and named it "R Bedell."

I will henceforth call them HL101 and HL102 until the so-called moderator puts both into the D-bag repository... which is well overdue.

If you received the text this afternoon, mine said "Presidential Alert". So I think HL101 and his flunkie HL102 owe Mr. Bondy, Mr. Harris, NBC 25 and the rest of humanity a big apology.

Both of your theories are 100% incorrect, as usual.

And you can call me whatever you want. That’s your right.

And despite your calls to have me silenced, I will never do that to you.

Oh, and if you think President Trump directly sent you a message, try responding to that message. Maybe you’ll be friends!

I saved my alert notice and it says NOTHING like you said. As far as an Apology, Hell will freeze over first.

Here’s a great exercise for you. Go to FEMA’s official Twitter page. Scroll down to the October 3rd 10:25 AM post that reads, “TODAY (10/3): At 2:18 PM EDT, we will be testing the Wireless Emergency Alert system nationwide. Expect a message box on your phone along with a loud tone and vibration.”

I’m sure you looked at your phone and thought, “Derp, it says ‘Presidential Alert.’ Dat must mean President Trump just sent me a message. Da people on TV were right!”

Oh, and I demand no apology because I’m an adult.

The test that was colloquially called the "Presidential Alert" is in reality the WEA... or Wireless Emergency Alert. it is a version of the EAS (formerly the EBS) which has been around for decades. It basically serves the same function but was designed for mobile phones.

The EAS is tested weekly by local stations... Monthly by the local primaries and their recipients (two of the Monthly tests each calendar year are conducted through the Michigan State Police)... and there is a nationwide test a couple of times each year as well. This weeks national test was the first for the new WEA and will probably be included side by side with the national EAS tests from this point forward.

It had nothing to do with the current occupant of the White House. Any source who said so on social media was just trolling for clicks.

Lies, lies, misdirection and more lies from HL101 and HL102.

As for the text alert, I never said President Trump personally sent me the text alert. I merely stated what the federal government labeled the mobile push as "Presidential Alert".

But the person having to read these posts to you must have skipped over that part.

I'll take my apology now. (And I am 100% correct on your not so secret identity since you showed me your account while we both worked at TV5 before you were shown the door.)

100% false!

I’m not who you think I am. I guarantee that.

Let’s see your proof that the person you think I am was “shown the door” at TV5. Never happened.

“...you showed me your account...”? Let’s check the calendar, shall we? What year do you guess that was? What account was that? Then, check when this account was created, 2011.

Ignorance and lying is a horrible combination.

You are right for the most part, indeed. However, I am perfectly happy not knowing (or caring) who you are. Some ignorance can be okay!

As for the original subject title for this topic -- is inaccurate/sloppy journalism "lies" or just wrong? I think that wrong is a better argument. I doubt that someone at 25 was trying to conspire a lie when allowing the content on their website. They are just idiots -- or perhaps ignorant, since that is our theme. Maybe they are both ignorant and idiots! Imagine that!

My phone called it a Presidential Alert so I’d hardly call this a lie. In fact, I wouldn’t even call it sloppy, a mistake, lazy, or poor journalism. I certainly wouldn’t say they’re idiots. Almost every news outlet was calling it a Presidential Alert. Based on the info that I received when I got that Alert... I’d say they were accurate.

Nobody got an “...alert from President Trump...”

Either the news doesn’t understand the workings of this process or are just completely ignorant.

lol1o1 is totally ignorant of the purpose of the EAS system! In an emergency this is a way for the President Of the country to talk to the American Public. lol1o1 needs more research on the subject, and less talking out of His ASS!

So, in an actual emergency, I can expect a text from THE Donald Trump?

If you would have researched the subject you wouldn't have asked a stupid question!

Apparently you didn’t research the subject because you changed your story. You said it’s for the president to communicate with the public in an actual emergency. Since a test is not an emergency, according to your story, the President didn’t send it, which supports the claim that it’s a lie!

Keep ‘em coming! I’ve got all day!

On April 12, 2013, the FCC released the results of the November 9, 2011 test.[31]
According to the FCC, 18% of stations failed to either receive or retransmit the alert.[31] The message, according to some, also lacked the alert code which would allow the President to speak.


Part of the Nationwide EAS test results

Which concludes my conversation BLEEP! BLEEP!
