Fox employees burned

News & Politics

"Production and technical personnel at Fox News Channel were exposed to diazinon, a neurotoxin class insecticide banned by the EPA for indoor use since the year 2000, according to a complaint now under investigation by the Occupational Safety and Health Administration," writes Brian. "A Fox News spokesperson said the company has not been contacted by OSHA, but [director of OSHA's office in Manhattan Richard] Mendelson said simply: 'They've been contacted.'...According to the tipster, FNC management claims that the incident was isolated. But the tipster, who is apparently a longtime employee, characterized that as 'bullshit.' 'The same guys have been spraying the same stuff for years and no one would listen when people complained it was making people sick,' the e-mail said." (TVNewser)
