hi I'm Nathan fielder so a big issue

right now in America is election hacking

with the midterm elections coming up

everyone's wondering our America's

voting systems safe but as someone who

works primarily in television I'm much

more concerned about a meeting this year

I have a pretty good chance of getting a

nomination and likely a win for my

Comedy Central series Nathan for you but

if for some reason someone can hack into

that system and the votes can be

manipulated my chances might go away so

I started researching just how secure

the online Emmy voting system is which

is operated by Ernst & Young and what I

uncovered is shocking to say the least

and really shocking to say the most I'm

sitting here right now with Carsten
