At FDA, TVs now turned to Fox News and can't be switched
CBS News has confirmed an email was sent to researchers at the FDA's Center for Biologics Evaluation and Research responding to apparent efforts to change the channel on internal television screens. The email from "[White Oak] Digital Display" sent on Wednesday, May 3, was sent to inform the researchers of the "reason for the change from CNN to Fox." White Oak is the name of the FDA's campus.

The email goes on to inform employees that the decision came from the Trump administration.

"The reason for the change is that a decision from the current administration administrative officials has requested that all monitors, under our control, on the White Oak Campus, display FOX news," the email reads.

Then, White Oak apologizes for the "inconvenience," adding, "I am unable to change any of the monitors to any other news source at this time."
Then turn them off.

I worked in a building that housed many federal defense contractors in Huntsville, Al. TV's in all the breakrooms and lobby. Always Fox. I and a few others would make a point to either turn them off or turn off the volume from time to time. After the 2016 election I was surprised as hell to see the landlord or whoever was in charge institute a rotation policy of 5 different channels each week day. Wonder what they are doing now.

Interesting to see a national emergency polling at 38%.

World Series champ Keith Hernandez 'barely' gets away with being a Trump fan in New York

Maybe everybody knows this but I just saw it. You’re better than this, Keith. Or maybe not.

I’m completely unsurprised.

Apparently a good economy is reason enough to put up with most anything.
