So I suppose it's fair to say that most of the world knows about this fuck-up:
Birmingham is ‘totally Muslim’ city, claims Fox News pundit

Steven Emerson later apologises for error as Twitter rounds on his view of Islam in Britain under the hashtag #FoxNewsFacts

Fox News expert ridiculed over Birmingham is ‘totally Muslim city’ claims

Non-Muslims do not go to the British city of Birmingham, which has become a “totally Muslim” city, it has been claimed. Speaking on US news channel Fox News, Steven Emerson – who claims to be a “terrorism expert” – also said that gangs of religious police in parts of London beat up people who are not wearing Islamic clothes.
Emerson later apologised for his comments, which he admitted were “totally in error”, and said he was planning to make a donation to the Birmingham Children’s hospital.
UPDATE: The British PM gets it right (h/t The Raw Story):

Security analyst Steven Emerson said Sunday that “non-Muslims just simply don’t go in” to the city, during a discussion of multiculturalism in Britain after last week’s Paris attacks.

“When I heard this, I choked on my porridge and I thought it must be April Fool’s Day. This guy is clearly a complete idiot,” Cameron told ITV News.
