Did you know there are "actually Muslim religious police" in London and some English cities are "totally Muslim" "no-go-zones" where "where non-Muslims just simply don't go in"? Neither did England until last Sunday, when resident Fox News "terrorism expert" Steve Emerson dropped these ignorance bombs on live television.
The pundit has since apologized for his stupid, stupid claims, but yesterday the network finally followed suit, issuing two apologizes for Emerson's comments and two more for additional errors they made about European Muslims (one as recently as hours beforehand).
"Over the course of this last week we have made some regrettable errors on air regarding the Muslim population in Europe—particularly with regard to England and France," said anchor Julie Banderas in the day's most extensive apology, continuing:
This applies especially to discussions of so-called "no-go zones," areas where non-Muslims allegedly aren't allowed in, and police supposedly won't go.
To be clear, there is no formal designation of these zones in either country, and no credible information to support the assertion there are specific areas in these countries that exclude individuals based solely on their religion.
