Well, that tells me that Fox doesn't spend a lot of resources on background checks. If I'm ever convicted of a felony and need a job when I get out, I'll certainly keep that in mind.
Or, well... the US government? It's funny to me how the focus of this story in the media is on how Fox News should have vetted him better, while somewhat downplaying the fact that he's not being charged for "making stuff up on TV". He's being charged for falsifying information while working for various government agencies. Perhaps the focus should be on that part of it?
I'm mean, it's not like this guy claimed to have come under fire while flying into Bosnia, or that an attack on an embassy building was the result of a video, or filed exit documentation asserting that she'd turned over all classified documents related to his work at the State Department, only to have kept them on his email server at home. Because those would be really serious, right?
