Apparently Fox 59 has pulled this story and the related video from their website. Additionally, the reporter in the video released the following statement regarding it:

" I thought you might be interested to know, since you published your blog, a follow up story on the “homeless sisters” aired tonight.

The Conrad Hotel Indianapolis has agreed to consider both homeless women for entry level positions pending the successful completion of a background check, drug screening and additional mandatory screening.

They also were provided with a 31-day bus pass and gift cards to Subway since that was the restaurant establishment they selected as being most convenient for them.

We are also connecting them with additional resources including housing organizations."

Just another outlet cashing in on the current craze. Instead of using the homeless like a circus act, perhaps they should be pointing out their plights.

My vote is for the Homeless guy that ran across heavy traffic just to ask me for a cigarette. Of course I didn`t give him one because "let me get a square, dog?" is not the proper way to beg for something.

@Listypoos "tasteless" do you really need to ask with this being FOX. I just assume they`re taking notes from The Onion on how to report news.

I`m still trying to figure out if the reporter is just dumb and didn`t realise how tasteless this was..... or if she`s cruel enough to know and not care as long as it furthered her career.

Big kick in the face,
"Did you hear about the homeless man on the internet got a second chance and a home and a job for having a voice people liked?"
"I dont have the internet or a voice"
"Well what can you do?"
"I can sing"
"well sing then, heres a dollar"
"Not good enough bye"

So what do they do if they don`t have a golden voice? Kick mud in their face and laugh while holding food in front of them? Horrible. Being homeless must be absolutely awful, everyone deserves help with it, not just talented ones.

WHY NOT HELP ALL THE HOMELESS OFF THE STREETS?
Fox news you have the power, the money? Just not the love, unless it`ll make you money. On youtube there is a guy called Drinking With Bob See how Ted is BS.

Wow, profiting off the homeless. This reaches a whole new level of evil...on a positive note, hopefully this will bridge the gap of inhumanity in the minds of many housed people.

Heck, I can see a reality tv show out of this, can have shopping cart races and such, they can win like, sweaters and toilet paper and maybe a brand new cardboard box.

While the general concept seems like a great idea, i.e. investing in the process of discovering the value among those who have been lost to disenfranchisement or marginalization (whether or to what degree that status has been self-induced or imposed), I agree with the perspective of `FeeFee` in that I do not think such an endeavor could be engaged by the media machine without distorting the work through the lens of the governing system of commodification. Though, having worked with the `homeless population` and the `psychologically troubled` population for many years, I can say that we as a society are truly losing out on experiencing and benefiting from the wealth of diverse and highly valuable contributions that would no doubt come from those populations` potential made manifest.

This is clearly a horrible idea. What...they just leave the talentless hobos alone?

Reporter: Oh...so you can`t do anything?
Hobo: I...can work any menial job...
Reporter: Yeah...that`s not what we`re looking for. BYE.
