Fox News terrorism expert has been arrested by the Feds and charged with fraud. Isn't that a prerequisite for Fox News?

Courtesy of CNN:

Wayne Simmons, a recurring guest on Fox News who claimed to have 27 years of experience with the CIA, was arrested Thursday after being indicted by a federal grand jury on charges that he lied about his service. 

Simmons is accused of falsely claiming that he worked as an "outside paramilitary special operations officer" for the CIA from 1973 to 2000. On Fox, this was often shortened to "former CIA operative." 

He was also indicted for using that false claim to gain government security clearances and an assignment as a defense contractor, where he advised senior military personnel overseas. 

Simmons made his initial appearance in court on Thursday afternoon. If convicted, he could face up to 35 years in prison on charges of major fraud against the United States, wire fraud, and making false statements to the government. 

Simmons is a familiar face to Fox News viewers. After the arrest was announced on Thursday, Fox News spokesperson Irena Briganti told CNN that he "was never a contributor for Fox News," and that he appeared on the network only as a non-paid guest. She therefore declined to comment further.

Uh...well as it turns out Simmons has a website on which he claims that  "has been a Terrorism Analyst for the Fox News Channel since 2002."

Can you say "Awkward?"

But let's be fair. After all just about everybody on Fox News is fake.

There are fake terrorism analysts.

Fake psychiatrists.

Fake liberals.

Fake black people.

And of course tons of fake journalists.
So if you are surprised by this then you simply have no been paying attention.

    Did you hear that Ben Carson has suspended his campaign to go on a book tour? Yes, well now we know what we suspected. Some of the R's run for President to sell books and achieve a higher profile so they can higher speaking fees.

    It's really poor form for a white guy to decide the "blackness" of black people.

    I get that what you were saying is that Fox works overtime trying to find black people who support their agenda in order to have a single person they can point to to say "See! We're not racist! This black guy agrees with us!" (Which is pretty racist in and of itself.) And, that's a mouthful to use for a picture label, but please consider changing it to something that more accurately reflects what you were actually trying to communicate. "Fake community spokesperson"? "Fake representative"? "Unrepresentative representative"?

    Good article otherwise.

    The GOP lineup is a pack of unrestrained and ignorant juveniles.. No self control, no ideas and answers or even acknowledgement of pressing issues. Most of all, it is a group unable to come to any consensus, the very basic premise of governance.

    Just HOW THE HECK was he able to fake the stuff for security clearances and the government/ defense contracts??? Aren't people checked and re-checked and turned inside-out in order to get security clearances???
    I guess that explains the non-vetting of our Tundra Turd and her Two-Toned 'First Dud' for VP...

    Of course now Fox will distance itself from Simmons. He won't be mentioned again on Fox ever. Ever.
