Trivia quiz: did anybody know that Fox News blared from television sets in the nation’s capitol? I, for one, did not. Democrat Bill Pascrell of New Jersey is aware and moreover he’s fed up.
He wrote a letter to Kevin McCarthy, at whose direction the TV sets were tuned to Fox.
One would think that McCarthy would have had the sense God gave a goat and in light of recent developments, that a congressional aide would have been told to change the channel. But it must have slipped Kev’s mind.
I am livid+can't believe that GOPQ MAGAt MoCs have "mandated" that FOX 'news' be broadcast on TVs on Capitol Hill

It’s still difficult to read, but if you increase the size of the screen and get a magnifying glass you should be able to make it out.
I find it intriguing that prior to McCarthy getting the gavel, the public television sets were set on a handful of different stations. When McCarthy took over he used the power of his office to tune them all to Fox News.
Personally, I think the sets should be set on C-Span. Although, admittedly, nowadays and especially when Boebert or Greene are speaking, it’s frequently indistinguishable from the Cartoon Channel.
