Sly Fox News Celebrated A Fake Navy SEAL, Trump Will Stay Quiet

Sly Fox News Celebrated A Fake Navy SEAL, Trump Will Stay Quiet

The Washington Post reports that 11 days after the story aired, Fox News had to retract the story because not only did the man, John Garofalo, never serve in the SEALs or Vietnam (he did serve in the Navy from 1963-67), he also never earned any special commendations for his service. Real Navy SEALs generally do not like it when fake Navy SEALs use bogus credentials to peddle glass presidential seals, and some of those real SEALs soon uncovered Garofalo's deception.

"All of Garofalo's claims turned out to be untrue", according to a statement issued by Fox News on Thursday. "The fact is that he did not serve in Vietnam".

During the segment, Garofalo talked about his time in Vietnam serving as a Navy SEAL. "He was awarded 22 commendations, including two Purple Hearts". "I have hope for him and I have hope for the country". "We certainly hope the president is listening".

The Navy Times broke the story wide open, and when they contacted Garofalo he admitted to his wrongdoing, telling the publication in a telephone interview, "It got bigger and bigger".

Narendra Modi promises improved facilities for devotees in Kedarnath
In June 2013, Uttarakhand was devastated by floods, which destroyed the several towns including Kedarnath. This is the second visit of the Prime Minister to the shrine this season.

"Over the last two weeks, we've worked with Garofalo's family and the National Personnel Records Center to get to the bottom of a military past that Garofalo had claimed to be covert".

A Fox spokesperson said at the time that he was not paid for his appearances and was "never a contributor for Fox News, only a guest".

A Fox spokeswoman said Friday morning that the story had been corrected online and on all social media platforms. "The man woke something up in me", said 72-year-old John Garofalo from his warmly-lit workshop as B-roll showed him carefully carving stars into the giant sheet of glass.

According to a report on Army Times website, "Garofalo said he had falsely portrayed himself as a Vietnam vet and a SEAL for years".

Prince Harry Invites Meghan Markle to Afternoon Tea With the Queen
According to a recent report , Prince Harry introduced Meghan Markle to Queen Elizabeth recently over tea at Buckingham Palace . Then in April we were all shocked when Meghan Markle announced that her lifestyle blog, The Tig, would no longer operate.

Fox retracted the story on October 19, eleven days after it aired, and issued an apology.

Garafalo did serve in the military, enlisting in the Navy and serving from September 6, 1963, to September 6, 1967, where he worked on an aircraft carrier near Rota, Spain.

"What I did I'm ashamed of, and I didn't mean to cause so much disgrace to the SEALs", Mr. Garofalo told the Navy Times. As Ziezulewicz puts it: "The closest [Garofalo] ever got to Vietnam was a tour in Rota, Spain".

Apparently, Llenas told Shipley that he was working on confirming Garofalo's claims and had submitted a request for his military records-which, while I didn't go to journalism school, is something that I'm reasonably sure you're supposed to do before putting something on the air, not afterwards.
