(January 15, 2015) Only the most ignorant consider Fox News to be a legitimate news network.
And when it comes to issues dealing with terrorism and Islam, Fox News is not only a font of disinformation and blatant propaganda but also flat out lies.
On January 11, so-called “international terrorism expert” Steven Emerson was on Fox’s Justice with Jeanine Pirro program and told one bald-faced whopper after another about the English city of Birmingham and the British capital. Emerson actually looked into the camera and with a straight face said, “there are actual cities like Birmingham that are totally Muslim, where non-Muslims just simply don’t go in.”
The so-called terrorism “expert” also said, “In parts of London, there are actually Muslim religious police that actually beat and actually wound, seriously, anyone who doesn’t dress according to Muslim, religious Muslim attire.”
These lies, which are not Emerson’s first, came after the owner of Fox’s parent, News Corporation, Rupert Murdoch, sent out a Twitter message stating that all Muslims must be held accountable for the recent terrorist attacks in Paris.
