Veterans are outraged after a KMPH FOX 26 News investigation reveals the Veterans Affairs Hospital in Fresno was caught blocking the FOX News Channel from a hospital waiting room.

KMPH Because the VA Hospital in Fresno and other VA Hospitals and clinic across the country operate with the help of your tax dollars, no matter what side of the fence you’re on it brings into question Freedom of Speech and censorship. VA Hospital Chief of Public Affairs Director Sheryl Grubb says. “It was just a misunderstanding. We’ve had a lot of veterans with diverse personalities. A lot of veterans complaining about one news station or the other, so the intent was really to be fair and equitable and take all stations off.” (But only FOX was removed) Reporter Erik Rosales says, “At the same time with you guys receiving tax dollars, this VA hospital cannot censor things like that?”
