Fox News erroneously claimed that President Barack Obama “has offered to pay out of his own pocket for the Museum of Muslim Culture,” a story that was reported during a feature about a memorial being closed due to the government shutdown. Now Anna Kooiman (pictured), the “Fox & Friends” host who “reported” on the fake story, has publicly apologized, according to All Alabama.

On October 5th, Kooiman attempted to call the President out for personally funding the Muslim Museum…but failed to check her sources.

But who was the source of her information?

Satirical website National Report, which is similar to the other famed news site The Onion who is also known for its satirical content.

The fake story’s headline, “Obama Uses Own Money to Open Muslim Museum Amid Government Shutdown,” stated that Obama held a press conference announcing that he would reopen the International Museum of Muslim Cultures in Jackson, Miss., out of his own pocket.

Kooiman juxtaposed the fake story against another (below) on how vets were denied access to a World War II memorial:

The Republican National Committee is offering to pay for it to keep it open so that the veterans from Honor Flight are going to be able to go and see this because who did it honor? It honored them,” Kooiman said on Fox & Friends Saturday morning. “It really doesn’t seem fair, especially—and we’re going to talk a little bit later in the show too about some things that are continuing to be funded. And President Obama has offered to pay out of his own pocket for the museum of Muslim culture out of his own pocket, yet it’s the Republican National Committee who’s paying for this.

Kooiman addressed her shoddy journalism via Twitter a day after the incident stating:

According to All Alabama, a network representative said that the erroneous broadcast would be addressed on the upcoming “Fox & Friends Weekend” program.

Bet they would have LOVED for this story to be factual!
