Fox News now requires masks, daily health screenings, and a vaccine pass system of all employees
What has happened to FREEDOM at Fox News?
From Media Matters earlier today:
In an internal Fox memo obtained by Adweek, the company announced on Tuesday that in response to the delta variant, it was instructing “all employees —whether on site as part of our essential workforce or working remotely,” to enter their vaccination status into a human resources database. (Emphasis in original.)
The company also said it was “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.”
All Fox employees will also be required to complete a daily health screening, and to show either a WorkCare “Go to Work” screening pass or the company’s own “Fox Clear Pass,” an internal vaccine passport system by which vaccinated employees are able to bypass the WorkCare screening. (The very existence of the Clear Pass, of course, stands in stark contrast to the network’s relentless fearmongering about vaccine passports.)
Fox News has apparently adopted “the left’s draconian coronavirus restriction.” What will Sean Hannity do?
From Fox News on July 26:
In city after city, the left’s draconian coronavirus restrictions are coming back Sean Hannity warned on his show Monday, after Dr. Anthony Fauci suggested that bringing back mask mandates is "under active consideration," and that he is "part of the discussion" around the decision.
”Medical Jim Crow” or revealing his “favorite sex position”? Will Tucker Carlson tell his employer what he really thinks about vaccine passports?
As Business Insider reported yesterday:
Carlson, Fox's top rated host and the centerpiece of its growing streaming service, has compared vaccine passports to "Jim Crow" racial segregation laws and likened asking someone about their vaccination status to asking them whether they've been infected with HIV or what their favorite sex positions are.
"Medical Jim Crow has come to America," Carlson claimed last month. "If we still had water fountains, the unvaccinated would have separate ones."
Pity poor Laura Ingraham who will have to wear a mask even though she knows it doesn’t work

Finally, how will Laura Ingraham deal with her frequent guests who tell her that there is no clinical reason to get vaccinated?
