Paris Mayor Anne Hidalgo sues Fox News over Muslim claims


Paris Mayor Anne Hidalgo has said she will sue Fox News for its inaccurate reporting about the city following the attack on the magazine Charlie Hebdo.

Fox News claimed there were “no-go areas” in Paris where police and non-Muslims refused to go.

Anne Hidalgo said the people of Paris had been “insulted” and the city’s image had been “damaged”.

Fox News has since apologized for making “regrettable errors” on air regarding the Muslim population.

Anne Hidalgo told CNN: “When we’re insulted and when we’ve had an image, then I think we’ll have to sue. I think we’ll have to go to court, in order to have these words removed.Anne Hidalgo sues Fox News

“The image of Paris has been prejudiced, and the honor of Paris has been prejudiced.”

In response, Fox News executive vice president Michael Clemente said: “We empathize with the citizens of France as they go through a healing process and return to everyday life.

“However, we find the Mayor’s comments regarding a lawsuit misplaced.”

The network has also apologized for comments by terror expert Steven Emerson, who claimed Birmingham was “totally Muslim” and ruled by Sharia law.

Fox News host Jeanine Pirro subsequently said Steven Emerson had “made a serious factual error that we wrongly let stand unchallenged and uncorrected”.

Steven Emerson said he had made an “inexcusable error”.
