According to Wikipedia, in the real world, a background check includes:
Criminal, arrest, incarceration, and sex offender records
Citizenship, immigration, or legal working status
Driving and vehicle records
Medical, Mental, and Physiological evaluation and records
Social Security Number
Other interpersonal interviews
In Simpson's bizarro world, a background check is:
A Google search.
Note first, "A Google search" is not listed on the items included in a background check.
Note second, my Google search of Michael Confoy did not turn up any of the items identified by Wikipedia, not even criminal, arrest, incarceration, and sex offender records. It brought up a NEWS STORY about an arrest and that's what I put on my blog.
Note that Simpson is the one who did a partial background check by looking up Confoy's sex offender RECORD on an official state website.
Hypocrisy, thy name is Simpson.
