Companies all over the country are implementing vaccine mandates.
The legality behind them remains to be seen, and as is often the case, could take years to run up the court ladder.
But now it looks like Republicans’ favorite network is demanding its employees do something unheard of – even if they work remotely.
Looks like the “Fair and Balanced” network is jumping on the “disclose your vaccine status” train.
According to a memo from Fox News Network CEO, Suzanne Scott, employees are required to reveal whether or not they have been vaccinated, regardless of whether they are on site or working from the comfort of their own home.
The memo obtained by Adweek said the company has asked employees to upload their vaccination status into an internal company database maintained by human resources by close of business August 17.
Supposedly the network is doing this so they can adhere to “space planning and contact tracing purposes in conjunction with CDC/state city health and safety guidelines.”
So, if that’s what it’s really about, it seems they shouldn’t need to know the vaccination status of those who work remotely, correct?
Just goes to show that even though hosts like Tucker Carlson and Laura Ingraham are speaking out against mandates and disclosing of vaccination status, it doesn’t mean everyone at the network agrees with them.
CNN Business also recently disclosed more of the memo that states masks continue to remain optional for those who are vaccinated, but the network is “requiring employees to wear a mask in small, confined spaces with limited opportunities for social distancing and where there are multiple employees, including control rooms.”
According to sources, the vaccination status request was requested in June, around the same time Tucker Carlson was blasting a reporter for asking about his vaccination status.
“When was the last time you had sex with your wife and in what position?” Carlson fired back. “We can trade intimate details.”
It’s no surprise that the Fox News network is pulling the same stunts as the rest of the corporate-controlled media outlets.
Fox News may be popular with Republicans but that doesn’t mean the network is run by conservatives.
