US News Channel Makes On-Air Apology After Birmingham Described As A 100% Muslim City
An American TV channel has made an on-air apology after a terror expert said Birmingham was a no go area for anyone who's not a muslim.
Stephen Emerson apologised after he made the comments last week while discussing the terror attacks at the Charlie Hebdo Magazine offices in Paris.
He faced huge criticism on twitter and was described by David Cameron as 'a complete idiot' after he described Birmingham as a City where non-muslims are too afraid to go, live on Fox News.
Mr Emerson issued a string of apologies to British media outlets over his ``terrible, inexcusable error'' during a broadcast last weekend and has also donated £500 to the city's children's hospital.
Fox News presenter Julie Banderas told viewers `Over the course of this last week we have made some regrettable errors on air, regarding the Muslim population in Europe, particularly with regard to England and France.
`This applies especially to discussions of so-called no-go zones, areas where non-Muslims allegedly aren't allowed in, and police supposedly won't go.
`To be clear, there is no formal designation of these zones in either country, and no credible information to support the assertion there are specific areas in these countries that exclude individuals based solely on their religion.
`There are, certainly, areas of high crime in Europe, as there are in the United States and other countries, where police and visitors enter with caution.
`We deeply regret the errors and apologise to any and all who may have taken offence, including the people of France and England.'
