Bed Bugs Found in Fox News Channel Newsroom

FNC_1118.jpgTVNewser has learned that a small area of the Fox News Channel newsroom has evidence of insects believed to be bed bugs. What is not known is how the insects got into the basement-level newsroom of the News Corp. headquarters. Most likely, an employee or guest unknowingly transported the poppy seed-sized bugs on their clothing, which then made their way into the fabric or carpeting.

BedBug_1118.jpgWe’re told an exterminator was brought in late last week to treat the area and those who sit near there have been alerted to take precautionary measures including sending their clothes to the dry cleaner.

For the past several years New York City has seen a rise of bed bug outbreaks in city hotels and apartments.
