A quick update on the “Fox Alert” text message I received yesterday.

It turns out a lot of people have gotten the same message. Sarah over at Wired’s blog has picked up on the story and has a few more insights into it. Specifically that “the phone number belongs to a voicemail company called SimpleVoiceBox that provides voicemail boxes to anyone who wants one.” Also, the McCain camp and the RNC have denied paying for the messages.
