Drudge Retort: The Other Side of the News
Sunday, May 13, 2018

Attention viewers at the U.S. Food and Drug Administration: Televisions will now be tuned to Fox News. CBS News has confirmed an email was sent to researchers at the FDA's Center for Biologics Evaluation and Research responding to apparent efforts to change the channel on internal television screens. The email from "[White Oak] Digital Display" sent on Wednesday, May 3, was sent to inform the researchers of the "reason for the change from CNN to Fox." White Oak is the name of the FDA's campus. The email goes on to inform employees that the decision came from the Trump administration. "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," the email reads.

Propaganda at it's finest. When we went on a national road trip last year, one motel had fox on. I asked that we seethe weather channel, and she told me that the owner says all that is allowed was fox. I filed a complaint and left no tip.

FDA Office Ordered to Keep All TVs on Fox News

Goebbels would be proud.

Come to think of it, so would Roger Ailes.

Rather pathetic that you have to have an officially approved channel to parrot your views. Isn't that what they do in North Korea, Iran, China and Russia?

OH RIGHT NEVER MIND

Yeah. Real news instead of the network created by ailes, who said they didn't need to hire investigative journalists, just pretty talking heads on a fancy set. Go figure.

YEAH!

Except one is funded by US tax dollars, the other by ticket fees!

So, they are just alike, but only in ding-dong land

Why exactly does the FDA need to have TVs on all the time? If they are in common areas then the President cannot determine which channel the tv is on. And if people cannot agree which channel to watch locally then turn it off and discuss why that is.

If they won't let us change the channel guess we will just have to just break the tv.

Orwellian. We have entered an era where truth is secondary to propaganda and the stupid people are ruling. Watch this space as they try to defend it. MSGT, Fishpaw, HATTER, above already did. In 2018 stupidity is intelligence, if you aren't stupid you are the enemy. Intelligence good, stupidity better.
