No, Fox DID NOT Apologize.

They issued a statement that was a further insult. Here is how it works:


Method: Did I just call you a derp?

Apologize for lies by repeating them as in:

"This applies especially to discussions of so-called 'no-go zones,' areas where non-Muslims allegedly aren't allowed in, and police supposedly won't go."

Good use of "so-called", "allegedly" and "supposedly". This implies that there is somewhere, somehow, there is some actual basis for the lies and the apology is just a minor correction that does not invalidate the basic lie.

"Some of the neighborhoods were highlighted incorrectly," she said. "We apologize for the error."

Good use of "some" to imply that there are correctly highlighted neighborhoods.


Method: Why do I have to waste my time apologizing?

Avoid any mention of the people directly targeted by lies:

"We deeply regret the errors, and apologize to any and all who may have taken offense, including the people of France and England."

Use of "may" to imply that only a few crackpots would take offense.


Method: This is just a one time slip-up.

No mention that this is just an ongoing policy of targeting Muslims and that world-wide outcry was the only reason that there was a non-apology issued.
