BRIAN WILLIAMS (HOST): Last thing before we go tonight, the Fox Corporation receiving praise as you saw there, from the President for its diligent efforts to contain the virus behind the scenes among its employees. Fox has a strict policy of demanding all their workers be vaccinated or face daily testing. Ninety percent of the Fox work force reports that they are now fully vaccinated.
Now, we should stress that's Fox employees, the inner workings of the company that the viewers can't see. But, it's the kind of responsible HR measures that companies like Fox are undertaking.
Of course, the Murdoch empire doesn't make any money off of a good, strict, diligent HR measure, they make their money from the viewership, and that's a totally different matter. On television, when they're speaking to their customers, Fox is fine with being seen as the network casting doubt on the vaccine, as a powerful new spot by the Lincoln Project points out.
