Thank you to Keith Olbermann for tweeting the link to this typically frustrating story of ClusterFox infiltration.
Or is that “indoctrination”?
Hey, aren’t mandates supposed to be unconstitutional? Apparently not:
The TV in the first-floor cafeteria at the Ohio Department of Transportation headquarters in Columbus (1980 W. Broad St.) has been mysteriously changed from CNN to Fox News under the new regime of Gov. John Kasich. [...]
Asked why it was Fox News, Ayers said, “No particular reason.”
So it doesn’t have to do with the fact that Kasich had a weekend show on Fox News until 2007, and had more recently filled in for popular host Bill O’Reilly.
And it’s not related to Fox News owner Rupert Murdoch making a $1 million contribution to the Republican Governor’s Association last year and telling Politico that it was solely because of his friendship with Kasich. (Oh, by the way, during last year’s election, the RGA ran a series of ads targeting Kasich’s opponent, Democratic Gov. Ted Strickland.)
Ayers denied a report from an angry ODOT employee, who wished to remain anonymous, that all of the other channels were blocked on the TV, but said, “I’m not sure there is a remote for it down there.“
No remotey, no changey.
Of course, the upside is that DoT employees will lose their appetites from being exposed to ClusterFox during meal time, hence they will see an uptick in overall weight loss, which can only be good for cholesetrol levels, which in turn will have a positive effect on their overall health, which could very well lower health care costs, which as a result could very well screw with Big Insurance.
See? There’s always a silver lining.
