The White House praised Fox for its new vaccine-or-test mandate, which is stricter than the federal policy.
Fox announced Tuesday it will require employees to either be vaccinated or tested daily.
The White House praised one of its top media critics, Fox News, for announcing an even stricter vaccine-or-test mandate than the administration's new federal policy for employers.
The White House urged Fox on Tuesday to inform its audience about the effectiveness of such policies, which the network's right-wing hosts regularly condemn on air.
"Today's news from Fox News follows a trend we're seeing across the country: vaccination and testing requirements work," a White House spokesperson told CNN on Tuesday.
This is in addition to Fox's policy that only vaccinated employees can remove their masks in some work settings. »
