It's always great to see one of these liars get called on the b.s. They are an embarrassment to this country.

Thanks for sharing. The news always seems to blow things out of proportion or make it look good for them.

I look at Fox news (so they call themselves) on a regular basis just to see what they are up to...they spread NOTHING but lies,hate, propaganda, and fear mongering! The SICK and SAD thing is their 'fans' believe all of the crap!!
If there is a negative issue in the world then Fox IS a part of the problem; they want to be because of the money they make!

I am more surprised that an American knows there is Birmingham in England, Britain, Europe besides the ones in Alabama and Michigan (and maybe some more in the US)! Thanks Wendy!

I live in Leyton-London Borough of Waltham Forest and have no problem living in a predominately area of Muslims. We all live together peacably and have respect for each other. Fox News are the Elites warmongering news outlet and as such are well known for their shit attitude towards Muslims. War on Terror-what a joke, the Elite are spreading vile hate through outlets such as Fox News to destablise communities . . Yeah, I'm also surprised Fox News knew about Birmingham UK but there again they will reach any part of the world if it means they can spread their vile comments to appease the "Elite" . . .

Thanks for the comments everyone, Now Mr Emerson needs to make sure his weak apology is shown across America on all news channels at peak news times !!!
His stupidity was broadcast in Britain, by all the "National News networks", at peak news time -slots, all day and into the night , Birmingham UK was not happy, but decided to treat him as the fool he is, and make fun of him, = hence the photo that accompanies this story xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx

Fox News is totally corrupt and with their own agenda. I never know what they say because I never watch them - they make me so mad - but they are real blight on the media. People unfortunately still believe that if it's on the news, it must be true. They need a good global take down. People need to know that the media also has an agenda and that they don't always tell the truth. Fox isn't the exception, it's the prototype for irresponsible reporting - and I use that word loosely!
