Via TTN:

The Biden administration is reserving praise only for those who play by their new stringent Covid-19 rules. The latest to earn the praise is a shocking one, it’s Fox Corp. According to a new memo from Fox human resources chief Kevin Lord, all employees will face their choice of vaccination or daily Covid testing.

According to CNN Business:

Lord told staffers that after the company asked employees to report their vaccination status, more than 90% of full-time Fox staffers “reported that they are fully vaccinated.” Lord then explained that “soon” the company will introduce daily testing for the staffers “who are not vaccinated or have not provided their vaccination status.” Lord said “additional details about this protocol” would be “shared with the relevant employees in the near future.”

In effect, Fox has adopted a more stringent version of the vaccine and testing mandate President Biden announced last week — the mandate that the company’s loudest voices have trashed and deemed to be nonsensical and “authoritarian.” While Biden pushed a vaccination or weekly testing requirement, Fox is saying it will implement a vaccination or daily testing requirement for unvaccinated staff.

All of this has prompted the White House to offer some praise to the Rupert Murdoch-controlled company, while also issuing a challenge to it: “Today’s news from Fox News follows a trend we’re seeing across the country: vaccination and testing requirements work,” a White House spokesperson told me Tuesday night. “We are glad they have stepped up to protect their workforce and strengthen the economy, and we encourage them convey to their audience that these types of practices will protect their employees, their communities, and the economy…”

Last week the Biden administration announced that companies with over 100 workers would be forced to either be vaccinated to subject to regular testing. The mandate is expected to impact over 80 million Americans and has drawn some sharp pushback from conservatives across the country.

If my company had 103 people and Biden ordered that, I would just fire 4 people and save the hassel and the money that testing cost. I guess unemployment is going to go way up.
That will help Biden ‘s popularity even more.

murdoch and kevin lord will both have severe reaction to the vax when they get vaccinated.
I guess the businesses that have 99 employees are safe, that covid is sure intelligent.
How can a ‘person’ with an IQ under 50 be the pr sorry, the squatter in the house thats apparently white.

They will only take a placebo (sugar water) Pity all Government Officials didn’t all take the real vaccines. And while we are at it, lets lockdown Media and government Officials and force them to social distance and stay home. Peace on Earth 🙂

Everything we buy in this country was made in another country by foreign workers because they do it for less money according to CEO’s and the biden administration.
But we’re supposed to believe them that our own bureaucrats are competent enough to know what’s best for us health wise??
Hardly!!!!!

They are not called FauxNews for nothing…although, they are “part & parcel”of the Fake-News Media/Corporate Complex…but they’re not a sycophantic as CNN or MSNBC, not that adept at lefty-bone-inhaling❓

A good time for decent people to leave Fox. These tests are very suspect and sticking a swab up the nose hits the Pineal Gland which affects the brain. Vaccines were always the ultimate aim of the evil corrupt Globalists. You didn’t take a vaccine in order to prevent Covid, you had Covid to make sure you took the vaccine! The depopulation aim of the global sits is 70% reduction in population! Wake up World

It is just the communist democrat cult party that resisted (kammell tow hairryass who refused any vaccine produced in the Trump era, which all were) vaccines! But of course that has been all forgotten by the sheeple that support the communist democrat cult party!
