With good reason, the Fox News Channel (FNC) led by Glenn Beck spent many hours exploring the far-left radical views of White House official Van Jones. The scrutiny resulted in Jones being forced out. But officials and hosts of the cable channel clearly failed to "vet" Marc Lamont Hill, who is being presented to the FNC viewing audience on a regular basis as just "a Columbia University professor" with expertise on a wide range of domestic and foreign policy issues.
Much less well-known is Hill's record of involvement in "revolutionary" causes, including support for convicted cop-killer Assata Shakur, a member of the terrorist Black Liberation Army (BLA) now living as a fugitive from justice in Communist Cuba. David Horowitz's revelation of Hill's embrace of the terrorist apparently caught FNC officials by surprise.
