FQX no news requires employees to have vaccine passports.

While bad mouthing them to their audience, little hypocrisy showing?

2. What I saw was that if they aren't vaccinated, they have to go through a daily health screening.

So they can say it's not mandatory, but you know how those things work. I'd guess that if you want to keep doing well there, you get the shot.

4. Believe it does........

"But Fox Corporation, the right-wing talk channel's parent company, has quietly implemented the concept
of a vaccine passport as workers slowly return back to the company's offices."

In fact when I first read about it (Palmer Report) I did a google search on subject and everyone is calling
it a "vaccine passport"

5. If belief made things true... it would be a much happier world

But I wasn't saying that the article doesn't use the label... just that it doesn't fit.

There are a bunch of notions about what a "vaccine passport" would be, but they all boil down to something that provides reasonable proof that you have been vaccinated. So, for instance, a cruise line doesn't need to test you or have your doctor sign a form. This isn't that. A self-certification that you've been vaccinated is no different from a grocery store saying that vaccinated people don't need to wear a mask and unvaccinated people do... but doesn't check whether that's true or not. If you walk in without a mask, you're claiming that you've been vaccinated.

And, of course, the story says that it is in no sense "required". It just replaces a daily certification ("I have no symptoms and I've checked my temperature today... and haven't been exposed" with a different certification ("I've been vaccinated". There no more reason for the employer to believe one than the other and there are no negative consequences to the employee of choosing one or the other.


In fact when I first read about it (Palmer Report)

That explains quite a bit. Palmer is known for... shall we say... "extreme hyperbole".
