Lol I love how Fox23 deleted the comments from this story. I still stand by my opinion...this isn't newsworthy and is a blantant attempt to trash an American solider. I am in no way affiliated with Matt Farmer, I do not know him, I am a viewer. Fox23 please step up your news game and report news that really matters. This story in no way edifys the people of Tulsa. So they guy lies about his experience in Iraq to get his golden ticket to Hollywood. So they guy sucks with his money and writes hot checks. Please explain how this is a big deal? Its not like he murdered someone, or molested a child. In my humble opinion Fox23 sucks for airing storys like this. All it does is helps ruin some guys (who obviously has issues) life. I forgot everyone at Fox23 is perfect. I'm a very disappointed viewer.
