They checked with the State Department, the FBI looked into it, turned out the journalist was legit - not the bumbling racist and fake Kazakh reporter, Borat. The Cleveland Plain Dealer reports the real journalist got a cold reception wherever he went. The cameraman's name probably didn't help - it's Bolat.
