This is being explained as a mistake.But it just seems a little odd to me.I get an off feeling that this is fear mongering,conditioning,or a trial run.Or it was a mistake.
I could just getting overly paranoid with all the bad news being reported lately.

Anyways,heres the sotry,and theres a video of this story on the page.

(CBS2News)-(CBS) CHICAGO Chicago area radio and TV stations were taken over for a few minutes Tuesday morning, after what was supposed to be a test of a new satellite warning network instead activated the Emergency Alert System.

"At this time, we don’t know why the federal government used a 'hot' or active code rather than a test code when they sent out this test message," Illinois Emergency Management Agency director Andrew Velasquez said in a news release.

This story is worth taking a look at,read the article,watch the news video(on the right hand side of the page).
And to play devil's advocate here,Mr.Silverstien also owns the Sears Tower in Chicago.

This might be something,or it might be nothing.
Just assumed you guys would wanna chime in on this story.
