Just when you thought the irony of it taking radical Muslims to make Fox “News” love France couldn’t get any better, it looks like the pretend news network will go back to eating freedom fries asap.

Of course, this is not to be confused with Fox News’ “no truth zone,” in which no factual information dare enter.

Here’s a settlement suggestion: make Bill O’ Reilly wear a beret and speak like Pepe’ Le Pew for a week.
