DAC: True, but local TV stations are licensed by the FCC to operate in the public interest. So I would argue that TV stations have a responsibility to broadcast severe weather warnings aimed at protecting lives and property. They can do that through a variety of methods: on air break ins to programming, crawls, phone alerts, etc

Understood. Was just making a point about the outrage getting a bit out of hand, which pretty much reflects society in general, really. Outraged is the new annoyed.

Very true. We only need to look at this forum for trumped up outrage for the sake of starting an argument and trolling others.
