According to liberal news network CNN, Fox News Corp. has actually implemented its own version of a vaccine passport while it’s very own hosts have told the public to fight against them. According to CNN Business reporter, Oliver Darcy, the human resources department introduced the “FOX Clear Pass” so that employees could voluntarily share their vaccine status.
Tucker Carlson has called the idea of vaccine passports the medical equivalent of “Jim Crow” laws. And other Fox News personalities have spent months both trafficking in anti-vaccine rhetoric and assailing the concept of showing proof of vaccination status.
But Fox Corporation, the right-wing talk channel’s parent company, has quietly implemented the concept of a vaccine passport as workers slowly return back to the company’s offices.
Fox employees, including those who work at Fox News, received an email, obtained by CNN Business, from the company’s Human Resources department in early June that said Fox had “developed a secure, voluntary way for employees to self-attest their vaccination status.”
The company has encouraged employees to report their status, telling them that “providing this information to FOX will assist the company with space planning and contact tracing.”
So far, Fox News has not confirmed any such “vaccine passport” program within the company.
