Radio host Mancow Muller has said that his show was the subject of government censorship during an interview with Jesse Ventura. Muller was unaware of the censorship until callers left messages stating that the show appeared to be scrambled at time. Some callers said that the show went to dead air. One caller offered an example of what he heard when the show was scrambled.
The censorship occurred whenever talk turned to FEMA camps or other conspiracies. Mancow is a nationally syndicated radio show host heard across the country. Mancow said that station owners across the country are scared to speak up over fears of losing their licensing to the FCC.
During his interview with Ventura, Mancow talked about Ventura’s controversial show on True TV “Conspiracy Theory” and the fact that the show is currently in limbo. Ventura said that they have a full season prepared to air, but True TV hasn’t said when and if it would air. Ventura also stated that his show was erased from Tivo even if owners didn’t erase it themselves.
Ventura said that he fears that True TV might have been the victims of government intimidation.
The radio industry’s new EAS, a system that helps with emergency alerts, is suspected in assisting with the censorship. The new system allows the government to commandeer the radio airwaves during times of emergency or crisis. The government can effectively end radio broadcasts anytime they choose or interrupt programming to release warnings or emergency information.
APPLE IOS 6 TO ALLOW GOVERNMENT ALERTS
In another example of government taking over communication, Apple has announced that its new operating system will allow the government to send alerts to Iphones, Ipads, and Macintosh computers using the new OS. Users can opt out of alerts, except for one coming from the White House. The alerts will appear on screen in text boxes making users aware of any announcements, even routine Presidential speeches.
Opponents call the concept an invasion of privacy by the government as alerts from the White House will be mandatory. There is no word on what kind of alerts will be sent, fundraising, official news, mandatory video, or even more.
The news has certainly made some wonder what else the government is capable of in terms of controlling consumer technology. Citizens are well aware of the fact that the government can read emails, texts, listen to phone calls, and view search histories. What many are unaware of is the back door technology built into most newer products from cellphones to laptops, the government is watching its citizens.
The government has full capability to control the media and will execute control whenever they see fit.
