Hackers Broadcast Hoax ‘Zombie Alert’ on US TV Station
*facepalm* Added emphasis mine:
People watching KRTV in Montana heard a man’s voice claiming that the “bodies of the dead are rising from their graves.”
The alert also claimed the bodies were “attacking the living”. […]
There are reports the hoax generated at least four calls to police to see if it was true. […]
Not to worry though! If there is ever an actual zombie apocalypse, the CDC’s Office of Public Health Preparedness and Response has it covered:
Wonder why Zombies, Zombie Apocalypse, and Zombie Preparedness continue to live or walk dead on a CDC web site? As it turns out what first began as a tongue in cheek campaign to engage new audiences with preparedness messages has proven to be a very effective platform. We continue to reach and engage a wide variety of audiences on all hazards preparedness via Zombie Preparedness; and as our own director, Dr. Ali Khan, notes, “If you are generally well equipped to deal with a zombie apocalypse you will be prepared for a hurricane, pandemic, earthquake, or terrorist attack.” So please log on, get a kit, make a plan, and be prepared!
Oh crap, did you notice that?? Look again—the guy in charge is a Muslim!!!
Someone get WND, Frank Gaffney, and Michele Bachmann on the phone, stat!!11!
