22 awesome #FoxNewsFacts to brighten up your Monday

Foxnewsfacts

Fox News has drawn the mocking ire of Twitter after one of its commentators claimed that Birmingham, the UK’s second-largest city is entirely under Muslim control.

During an interview on the conservative news station, security pundit Steven Emerson said: “And in Britain, it’s not just no-go zones, there are actual cities like Birmingham that are totally Muslim where non-Muslims just simply don’t go in”.

“And parts of London,” he added, “there are actually Muslim religious police that actually beat and actually wound seriously anyone who doesn’t dress according to Muslim, religious Muslim attire.

“So there’s a situation that Western Europe is not dealing with.”

Anyone with even a passing familiarity with the UK would know that Emerson’s assertions are completely spurious. It was inevitable that his assertions would result in some fairly substantial mocking, with the hashtag #FoxNewsFacts trending globally.
