Fox’s media critic Howard Kurtz did give a minute of his show Media Buzz this morning to his network’s numerous apologies for airing claims about the discredited “no-go zones” in European cities, including the now-retracted statement by terror “expert” Steve Emerson that Birmingham, UK was “totally Muslim.”
But Kurtz didn’t leave it there.
“Speaking of mistakes,” Kurtz said, “several news outlets wrongly identified Emerson, with the Huffington Post variously calling him a ‘Fox News contributor,’ ‘Fox News expert’ and ‘Fox News idiot’ — rather than just a guest.”
It’s too easy to call this stuff:
Apparently Fox has never heard of Steve Emerson; he bum-rushed the studio and screamed out his nonsense before they ejected him.
