Leaked Email Suggests Food and Drug Administration Staff Must Watch Fox News Instead of CNN
An email has been sent to staff at the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) announcing that all their agency’s televisions will show Fox News, apparently by order of the Trump administration.
Journalist Paul Thacker tweeted a screengrab of the message, but an FDA spokesperson denied there had been any such order.
It reads: “Please excuse me for sending this out to your entire group via your listserv, but I was alerted by a member in your group and I wanted to let everyone know that the reason for the change from CNN to Fox.
“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.
“Sorry for the inconvenience, but I am unable to change any of the monitors to any other news source at this time.”
The email was sent to workers at the Centre for Biologics Evaluation and Research (CBER), the branch that regulates medical products.
