Fox News is about to undergo a big shakeup at the worst possible time.
With just a week left before the 2020 election, Fox found out some bad news.
And now Fox News may have to take some of its top stars off the air after this crisis.
The New York Times exclusively reports that four top anchors and the network’s President will go into quarantine following their exposure to an individual infected with the coronavirus.
Left-wing activist Jeremy Peters exclusively reported that “Those who were exposed include Jay Wallace, the president of Fox News Media; Bret Baier, the chief political anchor; Martha MacCallum, the anchor of Fox’s 7 p.m. show, ‘The Story’; and Dana Perino and Juan Williams, two hosts of ‘The Five.’”
Fox’s on-air talent was exposed to the coronavirus following a plane ride back from Nashville, the site of the final presidential debate.
“The infected person was on a charter flight to New York from Nashville with a group of network executives, personalities and other staff members who attended the presidential debate on Thursday, according to the people, who spoke on the condition of anonymity to discuss internal network matters,” Peters also exclusively reported.
But this was not a case of Fox News not taking the coronavirus seriously.
In fact Fox News has some of the strictest coronavirus safety protocols of any media outlet.
“Network personnel have been serious about taking precautionary measures like wearing masks and avoiding proximity to one another, both in the studios and on the road for major events like the debates, network employees said. And Fox staff members on the ground in Nashville were regularly tested by the network and the Commission on Presidential Debates,” Peters also reported.
Baier, MacCallum, Perino and Williams will still perform their hosting duties virtually for now.
But if they test positive they may have to take a break from their on-air roles.
In the case of Baier and MacCallum that will prove problematic as they are set to be the main hosts of Fox’s Election Night coverage.
This episode also proves the futility of the lockdowns and fanatical coronavirus restrictions.
The coronavirus is a contagious disease.
But the survival rate will end up being over 99 percent.
Fox News took every precaution imaginable and still saw an outbreak among its top talent.
In the presidential contest, Joe Biden wants social distancing requirements and lockdowns that constrict economic growth.
President Trump argues that we know a great deal more about the virus, and medical treatments have improved so it is time to reopen the economy and schools while protecting the vulnerable and get back to normal life as soon as possible.
