BROKEN NEWS: Terrorism ‘Analyst’ Shamed
When it’s your job to BREAK NEWS all day long, eventually, you’re bound to mess something up. That’s what WE call… BROKEN NEWS. And in our first addition of BROKEN NEWS, we turn our attention to Fox News, where so-called TERRORISM ANALYST, Steve Emerson goes a little overboard when describing an entire city in Britain.
Now, to most Americans sitting at home watching this show with little to zero knowledge of what it ACTUALLY looks like in Birmingham, England, this clip could sound convincing. But when word got back across the pond, the feedback wasn’t very positive. Turns out, Birmingham isn’t entirely Muslim. It’s not even close. But rather, Steve Emerson just couldn’t stop himself once he got carried away. Later, Emerson was forced to apologize on Twitter. He – or someone in the Fox News PR Department – tweeted out “My comments on Fox News about Birmingham were totally inaccurate.” He followed that up with a donation to the Birmingham Children’s Hospital. We would suggest an alternate form of punishment for his next offense: force Emerson to watch an entire 24 hour news cycle of Fox News.
