not all localities have 24 hour news coverage. In the event of a major
regional or national emergency, if the power is out or delivery of
satellite TV or cable TV is unavailable, there would be NO 24 hour live news
available to the general population in many rural areas. I disagree that
EAS should be no more than a doorbell. In some areas, only radio will be
available, and in those cases, most of those stations will be automated
anyway. Not everyone lives in a city. Plan for worse case.
