In the 1930s a naive populace panicked when H. G. Wells tale of a Martian invasion (The World of the Wars) was broadcast and many thought it was real, because the radio was the quickest transportation for news, it had an emergency broadcast program, that would be tested monthly. It just so happened that H.G. Wells used this to his advantage to scare some people in believing that the world was coming to an end.
