CNN fired three employees who they say violated its China virus safety protocols by going to the office unvaccinated, The New York Times reported.
The newspaper reported that it is believed to be the first time a corporation has terminated workers for not getting needle shoved into their arms.
“In the past week, we have been made aware of three employees who were coming to the office unvaccinated. All three have been terminated,” CNN’s president, Jeff Zucker, wrote in an internal memo on Thursday that The New York Times obtained. “Let me be clear — we have a zero-tolerance policy on this.”
CNN had said this year that employees would need to be vaccinated against the virus in order to return to its American offices.
“We expect that in the weeks ahead, showing proof of vaccination may become a formal part” of the process for gaining access to the network’s workplaces, Zucker added.
CNN clearly does not have a zero-tolerance policy when it comes to employees who cover up for their political family members or male employees who masturbate during Zoom calls.
Chris Cuomo, also known as Fredo, was heavily involved in his brother’s response to a sexual harassment scandal. CNN says they are standing by the “lesser” Cuomo brother.
“Chris has not been involved in CNN’s extensive coverage of the allegations against Governor Cuomo -— on air or behind the scenes,” a CNN spokesperson said. “In part because, as he has said on his show, he could never be objective. But also because he often serves as a sounding board for his brother.”
Jeffrey Toobin, the network’s longtime senior legal analyst, is also back on the air after he was sidelined for masturbating during a Zoom meeting.
Toobin exposed himself during a Zoom call with colleagues at The New Yorker.
“I made an embarrassingly stupid mistake, believing I was off-camera. I apologize to my wife, family, friends and co-workers,” Toobin told Motherboard.
“I believed I was not visible on Zoom. I thought no one on the Zoom call could see me. I thought I had muted the Zoom video,” he added.
Perhaps they could host a new show together at CNN — Fredo and the Jerk.
