It could, it didn’t happen to Trump or anyone at Fox News

Poor lefties getting fined for sounding false alarm. Probably thought it was funny

Considering it was in the middle of a comedy bit, it was funny. Does someone actually think that people were false alarmed when the heard the tone? Instead of, you know, looking up at the tv and realizing that was in the middle of a show?

Your explanation / deflection fails at the FCC. :P

It's the law. US broadcasters are not allowed to use that tone for any other purpose than a genuine alert.

The Walking Dead isn't a comedy and couple of others that got zapped were radio stations. Kind'a hard to look up and see what's happening on the radio.

I hear something like a siren on the car radio I'm looking around for a cop or fire truck. I can see people being startled and worried by it wondering if something is happening but the TV screen isn't switching over.

I can see it from both sides, and I'm kind of curious how movies like Knowing can use it without getting a fine. Without having seen the offending clips, I'm of the mind that it's best to side with the FCC on the over-cautious side.

I remember turning on the TV back in the day halfway through Countdown to Looking Glass and it freaked me out a bit until I heard the disclaimer that it was just a movie during the commercial break.
