REPORTS: Jim Bob And Michelle Duggar Lied During Fox News Interview

Yesterday afternoon In Touch published a seven-point refutation of claims made by Jim Bob and Michelle Duggar during their Fox News interview. An excerpt:

Jim Bob and Michelle Duggar broke their silence about son Josh’s sexual molestation scandal on Wednesday night, but their interview was filled with misinformation and the reality TV couple also withheld crucial facts, according to public documents, obtained by In Touch magazine through the Freedom of Information Act. One of the most glaring omissions by the family concerns their statements about the 2006 Springdale Police Department investigation. The Duggars gave the viewing audience the impression that they fully cooperated, saying, “We trusted them, we trusted the police department.” But the Springdale police report, obtained by In Touch through FOIA, reveals that Jim Bob refused to produce Josh for a police-requested interview and stopped cooperating with the probe. “On Tuesday, December 19, 2006 at approximately 1300 hours D. Hignite received a voice mail from Jim Bob Duggar in reference to the interview with [redacted, Josh]. Det. Hignite received a voice mail from Mr. Duggar stating that [redacted, Josh] had hired an attorney and will not be coming in for interview.”

Hit the link for the rest. More from TMZ:

Jim Bob and Michelle Duggar are full of it when they say the Springdale, Arkansas Police Chief had an agenda in releasing the “sealed” molestation case … so says the city’s top prosecutor. Springdale City Attorney Ernest Cate tells TMZ, the case file was never sealed. The reason — the police report wasn’t filed until 2006, 4 years after the molestations began. When the police report was filed, Josh Duggar was 18, an adult suspect, and therefore there was no basis for sealing the case. Cate says he got a Freedom of Information request from a media outlet, and since it was a non-sealed case he was required to release it under the Freedom of Information Act. The names of the minor victims in the police report narrative were redacted. Jim Bob and Michelle claimed on Fox News Channel they were the real victims, because the Police Chief somehow had an agenda to get them. But Cate says it’s just not true, the city followed the law in releasing the file.

  • lymis

    But don’t you understand?

    Telling the truth and following the law IS an agenda. Lying to the police and media, covering up child molestation, and living an insane lifestyle is just good parenting.

    • B Snow

      Also, reporting facts is slander.

      • Dramphooey

        It is when it is about Christians.

  • I.Smith

    We should make a new word, to Jim Bob is to lie.

    • lymis

      Sorry, my husband is a Jim Bob. He doesn’t go by that, but that’s what they named him. There are too many good Jim Bobs out there.

    • Todd20036

      I like “to Duggar” better. It’s more recognizable, and can have more than one meaning.
      1) to self righteously lie while claiming to follow Christian teachings
      2) to molest children while claiming moral superiority

    • Michael Rush

      to ” put your own jim bob ” on it .

    • bambinoitaliano

      You’ve been jimbobed.

    • TheManicMechanic

      You’ve been jimbob’d in the royal duggar fashion.

  • lymis

    You know what, Duggars? If you did, in fact know about, abet, and cover up child molestation, the police OUGHT to be “out to get you.”

    That IS their job, after all.

    • Bill

      Lumus, I believe you are correct, and regardless of stature of limitations, something legally “should be able to be done”, and the children should be taken away from them, or they live with their older siblings.
      Regardless “something is going to happen” to them regardless of their TLC issue. There will certainly be more news.

      • Nic Peterson

        Where is Child Protective Services? There was documented molestation and a cover up by the parents. Why aren’t the other children being evaluated by clinical social workers at a very minimum. Why aren’t these ‘parents’ being questioned about their obstruction of justice

        I guess they have a different way of protecting the children in East Jesus, Arkansas.

        • Ginger Snap

          I’m sure like everywhere in the country Arkansas has slashed their social services funding.

    • HadenoughBS

      Not only are the Duggar parents Christianist liars about this whole sorry situation but, as usual, half-term Alaska governor Sarah Palin got her facts wrong, too.

      As part of her defense of the scheming, lying Duggars, she said this about the release of the police report: “The shocking, unethical leak of a private, legally protected counseling document by a politically motivated law enforcement official…”. No, Sarah, you’re incorrect. For once in your life, try to get your facts correct before speaking so you won’t appear to be so, uh, what’s the word….”stoopid”!

      • Gindy51

        Facts and Palin should never be used in the same paragraph.

      • TampaDink

        I’d be shocked but slightly happy if $arah would admit her errors on this…..or anything.

        • charemor

          I would be happy if she would just shut up and go away.

          • TampaDink

            Join the international club! There is some solace in the understanding that eventually we all reach room temperature. Hopefully we’ll be around to hear about it when she does it.

      • Cherry

        It’s hilarious that you would think that Sarah Palin would actually tell the truth on purpose. She deliberately lies. Her fans/supporters won’t believe the actual truth.

    • Brian in Valdosta

      “Uhh ummm I did uhh committed that there crime, I admit it, but them polices was just out to git me when they discovered that I committed them crimes. That’s not fair! I’m privileged!”

  • Michael Rush

    jim bob : why is everyone so obsessed with the truth , knowing it will destroy our tv series ?

    • Todd20036

      It won’t destroy the series. Sponsors leaving the show will do that.

      • Jeffrey

        The sponsors have already left the building. SO now it is time for all those super christian types to turn “The Duggar Family Christo-Fascist Gospel Hour” into a show on Trinity Network with the Pink Haired Lady. I bet her wig budget is bigger than the budget for a whole season of the Duggar show.

        • barracks9

          I miss Jan Crouch – her wigs were so fabulously, um…something.

          • People4Humanity

            She seems nice.

          • barracks9

            And wasn’t her husband Paul alleged to be gay and caught in some rent-boy scandal? Or am I confusing my christo-grifters?

          • He was definitely gay. Grifters is the right word. What else can you call a couple that live in his and hers mansions built with tax-exempt donations?

          • People4Humanity

            Dunno. But given this unflattering picture,
            and the same situation … I’d pay up!

          • Ian

            So I was curious about the details of the rentboy thing and in jumping down the wiki-rabbithole of Crouch, I found this organization that made me L-O-L:

          • Jeffrey

            Is she dead? Off the air? Floating above us all on a cotton candy cloud of love? Who knows. All I know is that she once raised a chicken back from the dead, but couldn’t do the same for her husband. So what is the point of having Supernatural powers? https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DoHlQm6tds4

          • I’ve choked a chicken and it’s come back from the dead — usually in about 20 minutes.

          • Jeffrey

            Now I see that Jan Crouch’s zombie chicken story is just metaphor for her papaw’s peter. I am disillusioned once again. (sometimes I think something is too mean to post, but then I post it anyway)

          • TampaDink

            4 out of 5 faithful followers of JMG agree with your approach and we do the same.

            Well, hey, at least she’ll have plenty of fresh eggs…

          • David Walker

            “So what is the point of having supernatural powers?” Clearly, god felt the chicken had a purpose in life. The preacher? Not so much.

          • Jeffrey

            Hahahaha

          • Cattleya1

            How come Jesus has time to raise a chicken from the dead for this pink-haired harpy, but kids with cancer are dropping dead daily? Women dying in childbirth, dads falling off buildings at work… Did I miss something?

      Silly question, I know, as it all boils down to $$$ – but… when is TLC going to pull the plug on this obscene freak show?

      • Stev84

        There is no rush for them really. The series is not currently in production. So it’s technically a matter of not renewing it.

        • OrliJoe in Fla

          I didn’t know that. Maybe they might want to make a statement that they don’t support child molestation? Just a crazy thought…

          • Dramphooey

            They “did” by pulling it from viewing. It’s really repulsive how TLC just sits back waiting to see how the chips fall.

          • barracks9

            I wonder if it’s more like ducks on a pond. TLC may seem like they are just swimming along, but below water, their lawyers and contracts people are paddling furiously to make this nightmare go away, carefully out of public view.

          • Jeffrey

            No, I think that made a statement that “We didn’t really care, but it looks like there is a negative reaction to the child molester TV show, so I guess we will remove it.” I am certain that if they thought they could make money off them they would be back.

          • guest

            …they are making money, look how much attention their network is receiving over this…the other shows benefit, and in their world there’s no such thing as bad publicity as long as TLC is spelled right.

      • Chucktech

        When is TLC going to pull the plug? When $$$ becomes $. Or less.

        • People4Humanity

          When $$$$$$ becomes ¢.

          • Chucktech

            They won’t let it slip THAT far!

    • TLC knew about this all along. How could they give them a tv show knowing this was out there and could break at any moment. Boycott anything associated with TLC.

  • Galvestonian

    Come on, they’re not exactly lieing. They’re just trying to protect their meal ticket. He’s been conning his congregation for years and they’ve been paying for his ‘making more good christians’. It seems that this guy is either hustling his churchgoers or ‘making babies’ and they’d footing this bigoted asshat’s bills. Christians have been getting away with half-truths and distortions for centuries. It’s for the good of the ‘flock’. Now, pay your tithe.

  • Ninja0980

    They are going for the two wrongs don’t make a right approach and failing at that just like they failed to protect their daughters.

    • lymis

      What they’re doing is the “We told the authorities, and nobody seemed to care, so we just thought it was all okay” game, like they had reported a rusty stop sign or a dripping fire hydrant.

      To me, it just shows how very little they care about their daughters or any of the other girls their son molested. This is all just an inconvenience they wish people would stop fussing about.

    Also, if anyone believes that 15 year old Josh voluntarily confessed on his own out of the blue, I have several bridges I’d like to sell to you. Someone, most likely one of his victims, must have told an adult, or else he was caught in the act.

    • DaddyRay

      I found that to be very odd during the interview myself, no way in hell Josh came forward repeatedly to his parents

    • No, see? He’s such a good little angel, went running to daddy immediately after only a few seconds of molesting. Every time he did it. That there proves the redeeming power of our Lard Jebus! And qweers hate Jebus and that’s why we must protect children from exposure to qweers.

      • oikos

        He learned it from Daddy.

      • TampaDink

        I suspect that he didn’t have to run very far…daddy duggar was probably guiding him.

    • People4Humanity

      There was a letter — documenting the serial abuse — tucked into a book that was loaned outside the family.

        • People4Humanity

    • Gindy51

      Must have been the child who was not one of the sisters. She must have told her parents and they told the Duggars. Only then did these things act.

    The general reaction seems to be about the same everywhere as it is here, so they’re toast as far as saleability is concerned. Minus a few shrill and insulting defenders, of course, but those are very rare, if very vocal.

    Lied? Really? I’m sure we’re all terribly, terribly shocked by that.

    I just wish there were some way to help the victims, other than to be noisy about our dissent with those things that call themselves parents.

  • DaddyRay

    As we have seen so many times before the coverup is what trips people up while they try to deflect blame or responsibility

  • Wynter Marie Starr

    Child molestation, covering up child molestation, not getting the victims any real help, lying about the LGBT community, lying in general, pimping out your kids for money, pumping out so many kids that you can’t adequately supervise or take care of them. If my family had their “family values” I’d be locked up and my kids taken away.

  • carswell

    How surprising that that very model of an incisive, truth-loving reporter Megyn Kelly let this slip by her! If I didn’t know better, I’d say the whole interview was rigged.

    • CB

      Rigged, controlled, scripted, and the Duggars were probably paid handsomely for it.

    • TommyTune

      Salon had a good piece about Kelly the other day in which they described her as an “evil genius,” someone who’s very adept at knowing just how far to push the envelope, and someone who’s just credible enough to prolong the illusion that Fox is actually a news organization rather than the blatant propaganda network it is. Her lackey viewers may be deceived but not the rest of us.

          Outrage?? What outrage? You mean our impotent little hissy fit here? To me, that’s the problem. All across American Christendom there seems to be a decided lack of “outrage.” Tittering obsession with Duggar prurience? Sure. But outrage? We don’t even know for sure if they’ve permanently lost their TV show.

  • Mark

    Lying for jebus……

  • Kruhn

    I mentioned previously that Josh Duggar was named in the FOIA requests because it may have been a quirk on Arkansas law that allowed minors who committed sexual assaults to be named as a way to shame them. Reading that it was the Duggars own idiocy and coverup that caused Josh to be named in the report because by the time they reported it Josh was an adult and thus, not covered by the shield laws, is doubly delicious in its irony.

    By covering up, you killed your own golden goose Jim Bob. How do you like them apples?

    Why was Josh not arrested?! When will children’s services take the rest of kids and get the REAL victims some help?! Something is still not right here. Too much info missing and all the while, all those kids are suffering in a cult.

    • skeptical_inquirer

      It’s simple. Too many believe that children are the property of their parents to do with what they like even if it means refusing them medical treatment and beating them, especially if they use the magic words like Jebus and fweedumb.

    I had never heard of In Touch before the Duggary scandal of the Duggars and Tony Perkins. Kudos to In Touch for digging up so much on the Duggary of the Duggars and their pedophile scandal and its cover up by the Duggars and Tony Perkins and the FRC.

      • Joe knows who I am.

        She certainly is at the bottom of it.

      • I’ll say this again…if Megyn Kelly’s intention had been to trap them into a false sense of security to get them to say things that made them sound like monsters, she could not have done a better job. I don’t think that’s her intention but the results are the same. They came off terribly and they can’t even blame the interviewer for being too liberal.

            Nope. Because if that were wrong, it would also be wrong of me to read her name as OhMe/GYN…..and considering her “in depth” reporting on duggary….she has probed the issue as carefully as anyone at faux noise probes any other story.
            I also wish to have her change the spelling of her surname to Kllye just for fun.

    And they know very well that their buybull says lying is a SIN. There’s one of the commandments about bearing false witness, and then there is Rev. 21:8 “… ALL liars … shall be consigned to the fiery lake of burning sulphur”. That’s ALL liars, not “all liars, with the exception of baptists, pentecostals, Bryan Fischer, Mike Huckabee, the Duggars, Pat Robertson …”

        The rule is that xters are forgiven any one sin the first time they pray for forgiveness.

        If he’s so forgiving then maybe he can destroy hell and then tell his followers to stop tormenting other people with their fantasies about eternal torture. But then what would the fundies bitch about??

      Over the clothing, but sometimes under the clothing, but only for a few seconds.

  • MikeBx2

    And now Fox News will try to squash these facts by airing an interview with the Duggar’s crying, molested daughters, pleading for everyone to just leave them alone.

    • noni

      They will be wearing “non defrauding” clothing, hair, and makeup.

      • TampaDink

        But mostly over their clothes….except sometimes when it is underneath.

  • People4Humanity

    Here are some random thoughts:

    In 2006, Josh would have been 18 years old [adult]. The wikipedia page only lists the Duggar grandparents. What about Michelle’s parents?

    Is Springdale police chief, Kathy O’Kelley, a lesbian? In a letter dated May 7, 2015, she writes Springdale mayor that she is resigning effective June 30, 2015. http://www.nwahomepage.com/story/d/story/springdale-police-chief-kathy-okelley-to-retire/24196/lzNHFX9OoUaDu8ulS1JIQw

    The other day I posted a link to the Duggar’s extensive real estate holdings in Washington County, Arkansas. Today that link pulls up a blank page [revision dated June 1, 2015].
    https://www.actdatascout.com/CountyHome/ProRealEstateSearch?county=Washington&state=AR&searchtype=Pro

    All of this appears quite strange.

    Isn’t that one of the commandments they’re always blathering on about? Lying? Since they’re liars among other things then they too shall not inherit their heavenly kingdom?

    • noni

      The difference is that they ask for forgiveness from their imaginary sky fairie each and every time they lie and he always forgives them. Presumably as a homosexual one never asks for forgiveness for being a homo, thus must be treated as a second class citizen as outlined by the Christian Community Council which determines human value of American citizens.

      • billbear1961

        Christ condemns divorce unless a spouse is guilty of adultery or some other sexual immorality.

        “And I say unto you, Whosoever shall put away his wife, except it be for fornication, and shall marry another, committeth adultery: and whoso marrieth her which is put away doth commit adultery.”–Matthew 19:9

        Divorce is rife among Evangelicals.

        How do they obtain forgiveness for this SIN (and that is what Christ calls it–he compares it to adultery itself–unless the spouse being divorced is guilty of sexual immorality) unless they repent AND REMARRY those whom they have divorced?

        Very FEW do that!

        They are unrepentant SINNERS, according to their own religion!

    GASP! They would NEVER lie! How dare you accuse them of going against the Bible’s commandment!!

  • Well, well, well! Let’s see, their eldest son molests his sisters, and refuses to pay taxes. Uterus Mom and Sperm Dad lie on national tv, and accuse the police of bribes and the media of slandering them. You know this isn’t the end of the hypocrisy mask being ripped off this family.

  • Dreaming Vertebrate

    Why did Megyn Kelly get the first interview?
    I was expecting them to appear first with Chris Hanson on “To Catch A Predator”.

    • JohnFS

      Megan got the interview, according to a mail I read on a blog online, sorry I couldn’t re-find it, because the interview was organised by the guy running Mike Huckerbees PAC. With Huckerbee being a friend of these people and a FOX contributor it sounds plausible even he’s distancing himself in public.

  • TampaDink

    When (and IF) all is said & done, I wonder whether there will prove to be more molestation victims in the Duggar household or in Hastert’s web of lies & protected secrecy.

    Christians lie. Why is anyone ever surprised. When your worldview can construct and maintain an imaginary friend it is *founded* on lying to yourself. Lying to others isn’t any stretch at all.
