Fox News President and 4 Anchors Exposed to COVID-19 on Private Plane, Told to Quarantine


From The New York Times, buried as usual on their website, just now:

Fox News preisdent Jay Wallace and four Fox News anchors have been to quarantine after being exposed to COVID-19 on a private plane.

The Fox News personalities are 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.”

According to the Times:

“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.

Everyone on board the plane has been told to get tested and quarantine. It was unclear whether more than one person had tested positive.”

Jeremy Peters filed the story. I’m sure he’s thrilled with the Times’s presentation of this story. Almost no Times headlines match the stories, you have to find them repurposed on Twitter to know what’s going on.

We still don’t whose plane they were on, or who was the infected person aboard.
