Le Petit Farce

Watch French TV make fun of Fox News' Parisian Islamophobia

Paris is apparently going to sue Fox News over its broadcast claim (since disavowed) that the City of Light has "no-go zones" where Muslims practice sharia law and keep all non-Muslims (and the police) out. But that doesn't mean France comedians can't have a whack at Fox News, too. Le Petit Journal, a fake-news show on Canal+, sent fake Fox News reporters "Mike" and "John" into Paris to be terrified by all things vaguely Muslim. The mockery is in (accented) English with French subtitles, so if you speak either language, enjoy France's particular brand of humor below. —Peter Weber
