Fox Falls For Fake Story About Obama Funding Muslim Museum

Fox and Friends co-host Anna Kooiman criticized President Obama by claiming that he "...offered to pay out of his own pocket for the museum of Muslim culture." She made her comments in the context of Fox pundits criticizing the closure of the World War II Memorial, which resulted from the Republican government shutdown. The only problem with Kooiman's statement is that she fell for a fake story from the National Report, a satirical website. Watch:

Media Matters points out that Fox has a history of citing satirical stories as actual news.
