FOX Sports could face FCC fine for Eagles emergency alert promo before Giants game

A hype promo that aired on FOX Sports before the Philadelphia Eagles played the New York Giants could subject the network to an FCC fine for its use of the Emergency Alert System. The FCC prohibits false and deceptive EAS transmissions, and fined ESPN earlier this year for a similar infraction in a “30 for 30” documentary about the University of Alabama. The promo also included a unregistered website URL that was hijacked by a Donald Trump supporter, who used it as a landing page for “Let’s Go Brandon” propaganda.
