Fox News forced to correct video showing 'retired Navy SEAL' veteran

20 October 2017 - 12:53 PM

 

 

It was the perfect pro-Trump story in a time of controversy over veterans. 
 
On 8 October, Fox News published a video about John Garofalo, a multi-decorated Navy SEAL who had personally carved a ginormous — 4 foot, 150 pound — glass seal he wanted to give to President Donald Trump. 
 
In the clip, Garofalo, 72, is reported to have received two Purple Hearts and about 22 commendations for his seven years of service in the Navy. He was reportedly listed twice in Vietnam as M.I.A.
 
“Garofalo is used to working under pressure,” Fox News reporter Bryan Llenas said. “The Vietnam War veteran served seven years as a member of the nation’s first Navy SEAL team. He was awarded 22 commendations, including two purple hearts.”
 
"You are a hero," Llenas tells him in praise. "True hero," another anchor repeats. "An amazing guy, I hope he gets to meet the president," says another one. 
 
There's only one problem. The story is fake, as Garofalo himself admitted to NavyTimes. 
 
It turns out the guy never served in Vietnam, was never a SEAL and didn't receive a Purple Heart:
 
“It got bigger and bigger," he said. “What I did I‘m ashamed of, and I didn’t mean to cause so much disgrace to the SEALs.” 
 
Fox News was forced to run a correction last night: 
 
So what's true in Garofalo's story? The 72-year-old served in the Navy from 1963 to 1967 as an aviation boatswain's mate, and was deployed for a while in Rota, Spain. He is also a talented glass artist who gifted two presidential seals to President Ronald Reagan and George H. W. Bush. 
 
Former and retired SEALs said they tried to contact Fox News about Garofalo's fake story but the network failed to correct it.
 
“Fox News not withdrawing that story has drove me nutty,” Don Shipley, a retired SEAL who's dedicated to finding fake military stories, told Navy Times. 
 
He provided the website proof of Garofalo's real military service.  
 
A Freedom of Information request shows "Naval Special Warfare Command having no records of Garofalo in the history of the elite units’ ranks," according to Navy Times. 
 
In its apology, Fox News added: 
 
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. We apologize to our viewers, especially veterans and servicemen and women.

FBI seizes over 3,000 peemises during raid at morgue employee's home

The Federal Bureau of Investigation suspected 54-year old Dave Murray, an employee of the Harris County Morgue, of being implicated in an organ trafficking network.
 
Investigating several reports of missing organs and body parts, dozens of agents raided his residence this morning, hoping to find evidence of his involvement in the crimes.
 
What they found on the site was a lot more disturbing than what they expected, as the FBI spokesman Andy Ramirez described the scene in an interview with WNTV-4.
 

“There were shelves everywhere, filled with hundreds of glass jars. Each of them contained a ###### floating in formalin.” 

 

 
According to Agent Ramirez, the accused rapidly confessed everything as soon as he was arrested.
 

“He explained in great detail, how he had been cutting off dead men’s genital organs and collecting them for more than ten years.” 

 

 
It took the FBI more than seven hours to gather all the organs and other pieces of evidence that were found on the site.

Maine football coach fired for telling kids to taunt opposing player with 2 moms

20 October 2017 - 08:07 AM

 

 

GRAY, Maine (AP) — A Maine high school varsity football coach has been dismissed after he allegedly instructed his players to taunt an opposing player for having two mothers as parents.
 
The parents, Lynn and Stephanie Eckersley-Ray, of Yarmouth, say Gray-New Gloucester coach Duane Greaton told his players to taunt their son every time he was tackled during a game last Friday by saying, “Who’s your daddy?”
 
The Eckersley-Rays say parents and players told them about the taunting order before the game began, but no taunting was overheard during the game.
 
Superintendent Craig King said Thursday that Greaton no longer works for the district.
 
It’s unclear if the coach resigned or was fired. Greaton did not return a phone call seeking comment.

 

 

 

 

Who's your daddy?  c'mon coach, you can do better.

 

I know we can do better, right FFT?
