The Crying Wolf News Alert

Posted by Mike on February 15, 2007

Fox News really needs to distinguish the sound of their breaking news alerts. Just now, I heard the familiar Fox breaking news alert sound in the background and kept doing what I was doing because I figured the alert would be something along the lines of “Anna Nicole is still dead” or “it’s cold outside.” Fortunately, a suspected aircraft hijacker was arrested in the Canary Islands. Hopefully, no one was killed or injured.

These news alerts tell me that Fox News either needs to stop issuing a breaking news alert every time Paris Hilton acts like a punchable nun or they should come up with a different sound for news alerts involving real breaking news like this hijacking situation, terrorist attacks, election results, key resignations etc. The current Fox breaking news alert is the modern example of crying wolf.
