Penn State climate scientist Michael Mann called out the Marriott hotel in New York City’s Times Square after one of the many televisions in the gym was turned to Fox News.

“The Fitness center at your NYC Times Square hotel has TV fixed on ‘Fox News’— a network that promotes anti-American, pro-Russian propaganda,” he tweeted.

He also tweeted that “the manager of the facility says he can’t change the channel, it is set by [Marriott]” and “This is deeply offensive”:
