SPEAKING OF RETURNING TO OFFICE PROCEDURES… >> Related: Here’s a thread from Andrew Lawrence showing the network attack Biden’s vaccine/testing mandate Tuesday night while it implements a version of it… NBC delays “full company reopening” to 2022

The hypocrisy should be no surprise 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…”

Throughout the pandemic, Fox has privately implemented common sense health measures to protect its employees, while simultaneously allowing its most influential hosts and personalities to publicly trash such measures. It has been true for face masks. It has been true for the concept of vaccine passports. And now it is true regarding vaccines and testing. Which is all to say, that while it would be nice if Fox’s biggest stars did encourage its audience to follow basic health precautions — as the White House is challenging the company to do — I will not hold my breath… 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.

NBCUniversal exec Adam Miller announced in a Tuesday memo to staff that the company is “moving our full company reopening to January.” Miller cited “the prevalence of the Delta variant and increasing number of breakthrough cases” that “caused us to amend our plans.” That said, Miller noted some employees have been participating in the company’s “soft reopening” and said the hope is to “bring even more” employees to offices in mid-October…
