Paris v USA

The mayor of Paris, Anne Hidalgo, has said she plans to sue Fox News, for a broadcast that described parts of the French capital as "no-go zones" for non-Muslims ... "The image of Paris has been prejudiced, and the honour of Paris has been prejudiced."

The same offence indeed that Birmingham suffered by the same casual news team and channel .... only Birmingham didn't bother 'suing' .... It will of course get nowhere, but illustrates a lot of differences between Anglo-Saxon thinking and Gallic attitudes.

Fox News said the channel had "made some regrettable errors on air regarding the Muslim population in Europe", and apologised "to any and all who may have taken offence, including the people of France and England". Fox has also apologised for the comments by terror expert Steven Emerson, who claimed Birmingham was "totally Muslim" and ruled by Sharia law .... of course only 21% of Birmingham is Muslim. Reports of No Go Zones in the UK have of course been circulating for a number of years.

Still if this is how the US gets its news and views the rest of the world, it does explain a few things.
