    Find this rather bizarre that today Fox News say Birmingham is 100% Muslim and a no go area for Non-Muslims, seems to have caused a big storm on social media.

    Well East Birmingham is basically just that. The rest of it, not so much.

    Fox News hardly has a reputation for being factual.

    :rofl:

    I'm sure our news has reported thinks that would seem just as ridiculous to natives of other cities, though. As a slightly less ridiculous example, I know someone who lives in Athens, and was completely bemused by our coverage of the Athenian riots (he hadn't noticed them). Similarly, if you watch American coverage of the London riots you would think we were fighting World War 3.

    Classic Fox News. And Twitter is responding pretty well, as expected.

    And our news makes it out like America is a war zone where people have to dodge bullets just to get to work and you can't send your kids to school without them getting massacred

    Fox News, that says it all really...........what's more surprising is the fact they have millions of viewers in the states who are just as gullible.

    Have they never ever heard of the Google search engine :rolleyes:

    I wonder what FOX reporters (if you could even call them that) like Jeanine Pirro, Greta van Susteren, and Bill O'Reilly think about themselves when they go to work for a news outlet that has reputation for low quality reporting. They probably don't care, because they believe the lies they're feeding to their viewers.

    Obviously a stupid thing to come out with but at least he's given a full apology quite quickly and will be donating to a Brummie charity.

    Provided me with some laughs tonight too :cool:
