Pete Hegseth may soon have enough courage to admit he’s been vaccinated because as of December 27, all New York City employees of Fox News must be vaccinated.
From The Daily Beast:
“All workers in NYC who perform in-person work at an office location, including Fox employees, must show proof of receiving at least one dose of a COVID-19 vaccine,” the Fox Corp. memo, first obtained by The Washington Post’s Jeremy Barr, stated. Fox Corp. is the parent company of Fox News.
New York City-based Fox staffers will no longer be allowed to skip the vaccination requirement by submitting a negative COVID-19 test, per the new guideline.
Not surprisingly, Fox is playing the victim and blaming New York City's Democratic Mayor, Bill de Blasio:
“The timing and ramifications of this mandate are very unfortunate, but we must take timely actions to be compliant by 12/27,” the company added. “This mandate by the Mayor prohibits unvaccinated employees from working at Fox New York offices as of 12/27.”
You may recall that Fox & Friends weekend host, Pete Hegseth, couldn’t deal with being asked if he’s been vaccinated during an interview with Mediaite’s Aidan McLaughlin recently. Hegseth was so unnerved he ended the interview right after that. It was a sure sign that Hegseth has been vaccinated. Maybe now he’ll have the nerve to admit it.
Hegseth’s fellow vaccine coward, Tucker Carlson, does not seem to work out of Fox's New York office. Non-NYC employees still have the option of a daily test (a more stringent requirement than the Biden administration’s), The Daily Beast notes.
I hope that all the Hounds have a great Holiday Season!
Thanks for all the hard work, Ellen!
The GOP has attained a level of hypocrisy (perhaps) not seen since the days when the Catholic Church was governed by the Borgia family (and others, both before and after them). The rank hypocrisy of the time was repeatedly denounced by true Christians since Jan Hull, but their protests did gain the traction provided by modern communications, especially the internet. At that time, the faithful were expected to accept whatever the leaders told them to think … and most of them did, on pain of death. Those days are over but today’s GOP seems to want to reinstate that sort of government, so long as they’re in the driver’s seat of course.
