Propaganda Alert: Mayor of Paris Plans to Sue Fox News for Lying About Muslims

(ANTIMEDIA) A series of Fox News segments were recently deemed to be inaccurate, and they were widely mocked in French media for being far from the truth, and for inciting hatred towards Muslims.

The news segments suggested that there were parts of Paris and other cities in Europe where ‘Islamic law was practiced’ and police and non-Islamic citizens were ‘fearful’ to go into these areas. Surprising to no one who is aware, Fox News was torn apart for making false claims about these alleged dangerous Muslim neighborhoods.

In response to this genuinely dangerous propaganda, the Mayor of Paris, Anne Hidalgo, seeks to sue Fox News.

According to CNN, a rival propaganda outlet, “One Fox show, for example, displayed an inaccurate map of the alleged “no-go zones” in and around Paris. On another show, a guest who was identified as a security expert claimed that Birmingham, England is a “totally Muslim city where non-Muslims don’t go in.”

This was such a blatant lie that British Prime Minister David Cameron had to admit it was false. He said “When I heard this, frankly, I choked on my porridge and I thought it must be April Fools Day.” 

Here’s another example of “experts” on Fox News playing no objective role, but the role of an agitator. They have assumed the role of seeking to justify war, homophobia, and Islamophobia.

A generic response was given by Fox News, saying it’s unlikely they would face consequences for lying.

“We empathize with the citizens of France as they go through a healing process and return to everyday life,” said Fox executive vice president Michael Clemente. “However, we find the mayor’s comments regarding a lawsuit misplaced.” 

Fox has since publicly apologized for this “mistake” on various shows including Justice with Judge Jeanine. The repulsive clip, for sake of reference, can be viewed here.

Please share this with as many people as possible, especially those remaining few who still believe what Fox News or any other corporate media outlet says.

  1. Judge Jeanine did not apologise at all for what she said! she made a half-asre apology for the guest and for not having someone refute him, but she did not apologise for her role whatsoever, for leading him on, or for saying she saw with her own eyes whats happening in London airports. she somehow thinks its decent Muslims and Arab nations responsibly to fix this problem when the greatest ally of the syrian government (who started all this three years ago) is the US! at the same time when the Arab nations send in arms to fight ISIL she bitches about Obama giving them power. she has been spreading hate for years and that whole station should be off the air.

  2. Fox News is huge steaming pile of bullshit! Although having lived in London for 5 years since 2009-2014 I have experienced and heard from others and read in the news about things happening there that could spike such crazy accusations. For example in East-London there are several communities where Muslim sharia(orwhatever its called) law practisers patrol the streets and warn people agains western behaviour. Even to the extent of actually threat of violence and violence itself. There are hate preachers that urge young muslims(who actually themselves are born and raised in a western society like London) to go to the streets and enforce the sharia law. A young man was stabbed simply for holding his girflriends hand on the street in public in said area in LONDON. Another case where a young man was severely beaten with metal rods for having a alcoholic beverage in hand. Where theres smoke, theres fire. These sort of rumors do start from something…but yeah obivously the Fox News always blows things out of proportion and manipulates the facts to help their cause.

  9. If they can prove any truth to their statement then she can sue all she wants, she will not win and I'm pretty sure what they stated will not be hard to prove, just pick up a paper or go on the net, they are not the only news source saying this crap.

  17. Fox is a horrible News station for telling such "lies" about the sweet muslims – are the most kind and loving people. Muslims just like to "prove" their kindness in "different" ways. I mean, who is to say that cutting off heads, throwing people of buildings because they are gay, executing people who have their hands tied behind their backs, raping babies, murdering children – who is to say that these aren't a "good" way to "demonstrate" love? answer: the rest of the world – that is who. Sorry muslims – these terrorist MUSLIM idiots have given your religion a very BAD impression of all of you.

  18. Straaaange. Anderson Cooper and others at CNN also talked about Islamic "no-go" zones in England and France. So did other networks. So did, I believe, Brian Williams. But then, the French government is a socialist one. Not meant as a put down (funny how I need to say that) but as fact. They are in line politically with those others.

  20. You're hilarious. You dump on FNC based not on watching it, but on what you're told and the rags you read? And you even admit it. They're so "bad" they double the viewership of others combined. So you're also saying that the majority of people are stupid and gullible. You're just amazing. Thank you for my daily laugh.

  21. seems the muslim immigrants Need a little "hatred". how else will the western countries convince them that they cannot partake of the benefits offered by charitable Christian countries without some cultural change on Their part in return. of course the Socialists who would rule these countries DEPEND on voters who are hooked on entitlements-without-responsibilities. this Mayor appears to fit into this category
