Fox News anchor apology
NEW YORK- A Fox News anchor apologized via Twitter for falsely saying President Obama offered to pay for the operation of a Muslim museum out of his own pocket during the government shutdown.
Anna Kooiman made the remark Saturday on "Fox & Friends" and the news network says it would correct the story on the air next Saturday.
Kooiman said it during a discussion about closed facilities during the government shutdown.
A satirical news site called "National Report" posted the story saying the President had used his own money to keep the museum open.
Another Fox News anchor erroneously reported a fence around a monument on the Capitol Mall in Washington had barbed wire on top of it.
