The same small number of companies own 90+ percent of the major network affiliates nationwide. Nexstar, Scripps, Sinclair, Tegna, Gray, Graham, etc.

I would be curious to know if FOX Stations Group has a vaccine mandate.

He hasn't reappeared anywhere to my knowledge. Perhaps he has decided to change occupations?

Fox stations require regular testing of employees that are not vaccinated.

Ben Bailey wasn't the only moron to resign at WDIV over their vaccination policy. At least one other long-time (not-on-air Talent) moron also left.

No vaccine/booster working in Covid free-range Florida or Texas?

What a dumb ass take. I hope you’re wearing your mask in your car when you’re alone. Also when you’re walking outside in the fresh air by yourself. You never know when the Rona might getcha!!

Listen, Einstein, masks actually help prevent the spread of COVID. Also, those who choose to not get vaccinated are only fucking themselves in the long run.

People throw temper tantrums over a piece of cloth and getting poked in the arm to prevent getting a horrible disease/illness. What the hell has happened to society...

Also this is one of the rare times I've agreed with any of SG's hyperbolic takes. Must be a full moon or something...

I am actually Einstein compared to you. Cloth masks don’t work at all. Evidence shows that in study after study after study. N95’s work to some extent but still not a fail safe mechanism against the coronavirus. And by the way, vaccines are proving to be ineffective against the omicron variant. Just watch as cases start to get worse and more hospitalizations and death occur. I’m fully vaccinated and boosted, asshole. However, if someone chooses not to get vaccine, that’s their choice, not yours and definitely not the government’s. Fucking moron.

I’m going to write this in all caps so you can understand. The vaccinated STILL PASS THE VIRUS ON TO OTHERS and, in fact, often times don’t know they’re carrying it. What happens when they pass it on to someone who’s unvaccinated and that person dies from the virus? Not the same? They deserve it? Oh ok. If you feel that way you’re a disgusting human being, and second, if you actually believe that this is a pandemic of the unvaccinated then you don’t follow the science at all. You follow propaganda and democratic politics and talking points. Fucking read an ACTUAL BOOK.

The unvaccinated are the vast majority of hospitalizations from COVID and deaths from COVID.

You are correct that vaccines do not eliminate contagion but they do greatly reduce risk of severe illness or fatality as a result of immune response induced by the vaccine.

The unvaccinated deserve medical treatment the same as anyone else - they are human beings - but people should also be held accountable for poor personal decisions.

How do you propose we hold them accountable if we must begrudgingly care for them then? A lecture?

Financial penalties in the form of higher health insurance premiums, just like smokers.

There are other measures that can be undertaken, too, but the above would probably be the most effective.
