CNN has fired three of its employees who dared to come to the office unvaccinated.
Jeff Zucker, the media company’s president, didn't even bother to face the staff in person, preferring to tell staff members of the firing in an email. Zucker, also took the opportunity to 'remind' staff that vaccines in the left-wing organisation were mandatory and if anyone reported to the office, or even out in the field, they will need to be required to have both vaccines, or face instant dismissal.
“Let me be clear – we have a zero tolerance policy on this,” wrote Zucker.
The memo was obtained by the Associated Press after its contents were first tweeted by CNN media reporter Oliver Darcy. CNN offered no details on the firings, or where the employees were based. But these were very much seen as 'a warning' to any of the other staff contemplating disobeying the diktat.
Most of CNN’s offices are already open on a voluntary basis, and Zucker said more than a third of news staff members have returned. Proof of vaccination has been left to the honor system, he said, but that may change in coming weeks. (for may, read will)
The CNN leader said that masks will also be required in Atlanta, Washington and Los Angeles offices when people aren’t eating, drinking or in an enclosed private space. (having a shit?) Even in offices where mask-wearing is not mandated, people should do what feels comfortable to them “without any fear of retaliation or judgment from co-workers” he said.
Tech and Media Industries across the country are heavily pushing vaccines and the associated passports as they revel in the technocracy they helped create. In Silicon Valley, Google, Facebook and Uber recently announced mandatory vaccinations for those returning to the office, while New York City and California have moved to require all government workers be vaccinated or face regular testing.
Meanwhile, Joe Biden is considering using federal law to withhold funds from a variety of institutions, ranging from cruise ships to universities to care homes as a way of pressuring more Americans to get vaccinated and employees to mandate inoculation for their workers, the Washington Post reported.
