Imagine working over 8 hours per day with a television that is stuck permanently and intentionally on Fox News by order of the alleged president. Now, imagine if former president Barack Obama ordered televisions at the U.S. Food and Drug Administration to remain solely on MSNBC; the outrage would be deafening. According to CBS News, the order to switch the channel from CNN to Fox News came from the Trump administration.

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.

In addition, the email goes on to inform its employees that the decision came from the current 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.

The email adds that White Oak apologizes for the “inconvenience,” and states, “I am unable to change any of the monitors to any other news source at this time.”

AddictingInfo notes that reporter Julia Reinstein confirmed the email from a source within the research center.

The full email reads:

From: WO Digital Display
Sent: Wednesday, May 03, 2017 9:49 AM
To: CBER Researchers
Subject: Attention: Regards about the news on the monitors in your locations

Good Morning, CBER Researchers,

Please excuse me for sending this out to your entire group via your listserv, but I was alerted by a member in your group and I wanted to let everyone know that the reason for the change from CNN to FOX.

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.

Sorry for the inconvenience, but I am unable to change any of the monitors to any other news source at this time.

In a statement to BuzzFeed News, an FDA spokesperson denied the channel change had been ordered but the email seems to suggest otherwise.

An employee said that “A lot of the staff were very upset about the change. After some complaints about the switch, we all received an email saying that the current administration ordered the change.”

This is totally not weird at all, k? It’s time we start talking about the Emoluments Clause again.
