3 CNN Employees Sh*canned

News broke on August 5th that CNN President Jeff Zucker told his staff that the ailing left-wing network has fired three of their staff who had the audacity to insist upon their bodily autonomy and came to work without submitting to the temporarily approved COVID19 vaccine. This was revealed in a memo that was initially acquired by The New York Times‘ Michael M. Grynbaum.

CNN With A Mixed Message To Their Employees

In the memo leaked via Twitter, Zucker told his staff, “Thus far, we have left proof of vaccination to an honor system. While we have asked for attestation to your status via Passcard, it has not been mandatory to produce a vaccine card. In the past week, we have been made aware of three employees who were coming to the office unvaccinated.” This would seem to send a mixed message, implicitly telling CNN’s staff that while the network wouldn’t require proof of vaccination as a condition of employment, if it were established that you were not vaccinated then expect to be fired.

“All three have been terminated. Let me be clear. We have a zero-tolerance policy on this,” Zucker wrote.

“You need to be vaccinated to come to the office. And you need to be vaccinated to work in the field, with other employees, regardless of whether you enter an office or not, Period.”

"

According to Axios, “The memo also stated that effective Thursday, CNN workers in the Los Angeles, Washington, D.C., and Atlanta offices were required to wear face masks, with few exceptions. This doesn’t apply to the network’s New York offices because masks haven’t been mandated in the state, according to the memo.”

The Blessing of The Biden-Harris Regime

The employer vaccine mandate is becoming more and more common, and proof of vaccination as a condition for service or accommodation is also starting to emerge in the form of “vaccine passport” requirements in states like New York.

The Washington Post wrote,

“The Justice Department issued guidance last month that existing law doesn’t prohibit workplaces from mandating vaccine shots. Lynn N. Hughes, the federal judge who ruled in favor of Houston Methodist, also wrote in his decision that Texas law only protects employees from termination when they are asked to commit an illegal act carrying criminal penalties.”

As the situation progresses and more employers adopt mandatory vaccination, we are certain to see this challenged to the Supreme Court.
