ABC News recently reported that CNN fired three employees for coming to work unvaccinated. Here is a quote…
CNN has fired three employees who violated company policy by coming to work unvaccinated against the COVID-19 virus.
CNN chief Jeff Zucker told staff members of the firing in a memo sent Thursday that reminded them that vaccines were mandatory if they report to the office or out in the field where they come into contact with other employees.
“Let me be clear — we have a zero tolerance policy on this,” wrote Zucker, chairman of news and sports for WarnerMedia.
The memo was obtained by The Associated Press after its contents were first tweeted by CNN media reporter Oliver Darcy. CNN offered no details on the firings, or where the employees were based.
CNN is far from being the only company to mandate vaccines of their employees. Here is a quote from CNBC.
The U.S. government may not require that everyone get Covid-19 vaccines, but large employers across corporate America are stepping into the void.
More than a dozen large U.S. corporations, including Walmart, Google, Tyson Foods and United Airlines, have recently announced vaccine mandates for some or all of their workers.
And if you want to get granular on companies who have announced covid vaccine mandates, click here for a list of companies mandating and encouraging employees to get the jab. Below is just a partial list of companies mandating employees get vaccinated for Covid.
- Delta Air Lines new hires
- Facebook employees at U.S. campuses
- U.S.-based Google employees
- Employees of The Washington Post
- New York City-based Morgan Stanley employees
- CNN employees
- Asset manager BlackRock
- All office-based employees of Lyft
- Private healthcare network Ascension Health
- Cast and crew of U.S. Netflix productions
- Norweigan Cruise Lines crew
- Employees and crew members at all U.S.-based Walt Disney parks
- In September, Microsoft will require vaccinated employees, vendors, and visitors to its U.S. offices
- Office-based Uber employees
- All U.S.-based employees of United Airlines
- Corporate office employees of Walgreens
- Anthem health insurance company
- Frontier Airlines employees beginning October 1
- U.S.-based Ford employees that travel overseas
Curiously enough, while companies have begun making mandates, employees have been resisting the trend. One major example is coming from the healthcare industry, as ironic as that is. Here is a quote from a NPR report.
More than 150 employees at a Houston hospital system who refused to get a COVID-19 vaccine have been fired or resigned after a judge dismissed an employee lawsuit over the vaccine requirement.
A spokesperson for Houston Methodist Hospital system said 153 employees either resigned in the two-week suspension period or were terminated on Tuesday.
Earlier this month, a federal judge threw out the lawsuit filed by 117 employees over the requirement.
The case over how far health care institutions can go to protect patients and others against the coronavirus has been closely watched. It’s is believed to be the first of its kind in the U.S. But it won’t be the end of the debate.
I do not have any connections within the hospital system reported on so, all I can do is speculate. I am sure that the sudden loss of 150 employees has had a significant impact. How could it not? Moreover, of the employees that were fired solely because they would not get vaccinated, how many of them are suing their former employer? Of those who resigned because of the vaccine mandates, how many are considering legal action? Moreover, is the healthcare system ready to deal with so many potential lawsuits coming at once?
Let’s go further in speculation. I am not a legal expert so, take this with a grain of salt. Even if lawsuits based on covid vaccines are largely winnable by the employer (as some people think), how much time and money and employer brand reputation will be lost in fighting them? How will that affect recruiting efforts? How will retention rates be affected when new variants appear and booster shots are recommended? Or when/if vaccine deaths become too large to be ignored by mainstream media?
And pity the HR department who will be deluged with exemption requests, especially when so many forms are freely available online. Here is list of such resources that I found at a cursory glance.
- FACTS on Your Right to Refuse COVID-19 Vaccination
- IMPORTANT: DOWNLOAD COVID VACCINE RELIGIOUS EXEMPTION DOCUMENTS HERE
- RELIGIOUS EXEMPTIONS FOR COLLEGES AND EMPLOYERS
- Sample Religious Exemption Requests For COVID Shot Mandates
- Employer, School Mandated Vaxx NOT LEGAL – Attorney Says “Hold The Line”
And then there is the meme logic that has been floating ad infinitum on the internet.
If the vaccine is effective, won’t it protect you from the unvaccinated? If social distancing works, why wear the mask? If masks work, why bother with a vaccine?
All that to say, Employers, you can choose to mandate a vaccination and risk…
Perhaps the best question of all, is it worth mandating a choice that should be between a person and their doctor? As you ponder that, I will leave you with this video. Admittedly, I thought it was a comedy skit but it is not. This is a legitimate promotion for getting a covid vaccination shot. What is wrong with this picture?
The Dangers of Speaking the Truth Diminish If We Work Together
It’s becoming harder and harder for patriots to ignore the deep suppression of truth that’s happening in America today.
In all of my years in journalism, I have never received as many threats or been attacked by big companies like Google and Facebook as I have in 2021. I’d say that ever since we started covering widespread voter fraud, government-endorsed Pandemic Panic Theater, vaccine cover-ups, Critical Race Theory, and the various Neo-Marxist and Satanic agendas at play, I’ve been targeted more in months than the entirety of my life prior.
Speaking the truth is getting harder with so much censorship and suppression rampant. Prior to 2020, I was not a “conspiracy theorist” or an “anti-vaxxer,” but if there’s one thing the onslaught of exposed lies have taught us in the last 18 months, it’s that we cannot take what we’re told by the “arbiters of truth” at face value. There’s an agenda behind every message, a narrative driving every story, and a series of gigantic cover-ups designed to keep the masses in the dark.
This is why we’re building a network of news outlets that are willing to go against the narrative and expose the truth. We need help. We’re establishing strong partnerships with like-minded news outlets and courageous journalists. Even as Big Tech suppresses us, the honest messages they’re trying to quash are finding their way to the eyes and ears of patriots across the nation. With the help of new content partners like The Epoch Times and The Liberty Daily, we’re starting to see a real impact.
Our network is currently comprised of nine sites:
- NOQ Report
- Conservative Playlist
- Truth. Based. Media.
- Freedom First Network
- Based Underground
- Uncanceled News
- American Conservative Movement
- Conservative Playbook
- Our Gold Guy
Some of our content is spread across all of these sites. Other pieces of content are unique. We write most of what we post but we also draw from those willing to allow us to share their quality articles, videos, and podcasts. We collect the best content from fellow conservative sites that give us permission to republish them. We’re not ego-driven; I’d much rather post a properly attributed story written by experts like Dr. Joseph Mercola or Natural News than rewrite it like so many outlets like to do. We’re not here to take credit. We’re here to spread the truth.
I’ve said much of this before. From time to time I reframe this request for assistance by taking the most relevant message of the day and adjusting the story accordingly. We’ve discussed this network in previous articles. Now, it’s time to talk about help. First and foremost, we need financial assistance detailed below. But we could also use more writers who are willing to volunteer their thoughts for the sake of spreading the message. Those who are interested should contact me directly.
As far as money, we’re looking better than we have in the recent past, but we are currently experiencing a gap between revenue and expenses that cannot be overcome by click-ads and MyPillow promos alone (promo code “NOQ” by the way).
To overcome our revenue gap and keep these sites running, our needs fluctuate between $2200-$7800 per month. May, 2021, for example, was amazing and we almost broke even. June, revenue was sluggish at best and we had to make up a big difference out of our pockets. But we’re not just trying to get out of the red. If and when we start getting enough contributions to expand, we will do just that. Very few get into journalism to try to get rich and we’re definitely not among those who do. Our success is driven by spreading the truth, profitable or not.
The best way you can help us grow and continue to bring proper news and opinions to the people is by donating. We appreciate everything, whether a dollar or $10,000. Anything brings us closer to a point of stability when we can hire writers, editors, and support staff to make the America First message louder. Our Giving Fuel page makes it easy to donate one-time or monthly. Alternatively, you can donate through PayPal or Bitcoin as well. Bitcoin: 3A1ELVhGgrwrypwTJhPwnaTVGmuqyQrMB8
Time is short. As the world spirals towards radical progressivism, the need for truthful journalism has never been greater. But in these times, we need as many conservative media voices as possible. Please help keep NOQ Report and the other sites in the network going. Our promise is this: We will never sell out America. If that means we’re going to struggle for a while or even indefinitely, so be it. Integrity first. Truth first. America first.
Thank you and God Bless,
