FOX News Promotes Crooked Bernard Kerik As “Anti-Terror Expert”

Reported by Ellen - January 4, 2009 -

FOX News may be obsessed with corruption in Chicago but it has completely ignored the corruption of former New York City police Commissioner Bernard Kerik. Kerik, you may recall, is the disgraced former partner of Rudolph Giuliani who withdrew from a nomination by President Bush to head the Department of Homeland Security amidst a stream of accusations about personal financial and ethical improprieties. Just last week, new corruption charges were filed against Kerik. He has already pleaded guilty to accepting gifts from a company associated with organized crime, that was also seeking to do business with the City of New York. Nevertheless, the “we report, you decide” network deemed none of that important enough to reveal to its viewers when it presented Kerik last night as an “anti-terror expert” during a segment last night devoted to the Israeli/Gazi war. Geraldo Rivera even affectionately (and misleadingly) repeatedly referred to Kerik as “The Commish.” Video after the jump.

Since his disgraced departure from public service, Kerik has appeared several times on FOX News without a disclosure of his scandalous history.

In the video below, Kerik appears about 2 minutes before the end.
