the no go zones, Fox news hilarity
maybe this belongs in general BS, but this spot seems good too.
sometimes I wonder why I follow American politics despite not being American. It doesn't usually take too long for me to be reminded: I'ts because American right wingers are the best unintentional comedians this world has ever seen.
So a week or so ago fox news brought on this 'terrorism analyst'. he stated that throughout Europe there are several 'no go zones', where sharia law is held and non-Muslims may not enter. He said that the entire city of Birmingham was such a zone.
David Cameron reportedly spit out his porridge when he heard this.
The 'analyst' was interviewed by BBC, and apologized for the misinformation. Would this stop Fox? hell-to-the-no.
here is my favorite video on the topic, as it includes the awesome reaction of a french TV program, as well as a compilation of the lies.
I hope you all enjoy it as much as I did:
check this video for more from le petit journal on the topic, and fox news's reply when contacted.
So, enjoy. Also take this opportunity to post any other political hilarity from various countries you've found over the years.

If people this stupid can get on TV, why don't I have my own talk show yet?

If you think any of the other major American news outlets are less retarded, then you may be a retard yourself.

The news has been getting things wrong for hundreds of years, it only got worse and more frequent with cable.
Funny Fox News has never done a big story on the "no go" zones all over my state and those are right down the road from their HQ. Paris has a couple low-income danger zones? In NJ entire cities are danger zones and you can see some of them from the top floors of 21st Century Fox (News Corp's new media division name).
Anybody else note how ironic it is that the new name of Fox News' parent company was taken from Hollywood? It's all movie magic. Don't forget Fox News is part of the ENTERTAINMENT wing of the former News Corp. Accuracy takes a back seat to thrills and chills.
