What FOX News does NOT report is the actual motivation behind the actions of First Selectman James Zeloi, who is the one who ordered ending the free coffee and dress down Fridays. Someone disagreed with him during a public meeting, so he decided to retaliate. This story is all about the petulance of a man who went off the deep end, after someone disagreed with him in a polite way.
From the New Haven (Connecticut) Register:
But leave it to FOX News to conveniently ignore this fact, in order to promote it's own political agenda. This is just another of the many examples of why FOX News is not a real news organization at all, but a propaganda mouthpiece for the Republican Party. After all, if they were a real news organization, then they would truly report all the facts, and let us decide. That's their motto, right? Physician, heal thyself.The state labor board recently ruled in favor of the union that the town must provide those perks, and in its decision said Zeoli only suspended the perks after union leaders spoke out at a meeting about their concerns over excessive legal costs, and their assertion the town was dragging its feet in contract negotiations.
