    Fox News issued two corrections on the matter, one of which acknowledged that “we have made some regrettable errors on air regarding the Muslim population in Europe, particularly with regard to England and France.” That came from Julie Banderas during the Saturday night program “Fox Report.”

    She continued: “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.”

    On 1/9/15, CNN's Chris Cuomo claimed Paris had "no go" zones, as well.

    I'll wait for the uproar that I know ain't coming.



    BLITZER: Chris Cuomo, you are there in Paris for us. Have you sensed from the few days that you've been there, a growing anti-Muslim sentiment on the streets of Paris?

    CUOMO: No. That would be a very difficult thing to tell. Certainly, I haven't seen anything that I could report on that way. I mean, we have been getting read in about what cultural tensions do exist here. There's a large part of the population that is assimilated. What's happened in north Paris is not a secret. We know there were riots there several years ago. There are what they call a no-go zone. There are problems with policing, problems with dis-enfranchisement. And we hear about that in urban centers about what they have to deal with in terms of minorities. But you are also going to have a phobic response when you have a particular member of a group that seems to be attacking the rest. The reaction has been to the violence. It hasn't been cultural or Muslim centered. It's just been, who is doing it and how is it going to be stopped?

    Good for them. Another reason to tune in to FOX News.

    DISH just cut on that cable channel here last week, so I didn't hear the comment originally, but I don't think it's what Jules implies here:

    “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.”

    LOL, that's NOT what a no go zone is by the usual definition, and I find it strange how everybody's harping on this. FWIR, some guy on some show on the channel said all Birmingham was a huge no-go zone and then corrected himself.

    A no-go zone doesn't "exclude individuals based solely on their religion" but what they are a lawless areas of a country or state that authorities have washed their hands of. France does not call them that, they call them:
