Here’s something to brighten your day! Fox “News”, a.k.a. the unofficial mouthpiece of the oligarchy, is saturated with blatant, unapologetic liars on its shows. Everyone knows that! This guy just happens to have one lie bigger than most…and then some.
A frequent Fox News guest analyst has been charged with fraud after falsely claiming to be a former CIA agent, US prosecutors say. Wayne Simmons of Annapolis, Maryland, portrayed himself as an “outside paramilitary special operations officer” for the Central Intelligence Agency from 1973 to 2000. He allegedly tried to use that claim to get government security clearances and work as a defence contractor.
Oh, and there’s more!
The indictment also alleged that Mr Simmons defrauded a victim out of about $125,000 in a real estate-related scam.
That sound you hear is me jumping up and down and clapping like an excited schoolgirl. Not because of the scam, but because he’s long been one of Fox’s many talking (lying) heads. Also because he was arrested and indicted for his behavior.
Fox News: bringing you Grade-A premium lying assholes since forever.
