The French fake news show “Le Petit Journal” on Friday sent a few of its correspondents dressed up as Fox News reporters to hit the streets of Paris, playing up fear of terrorism and Islam in fake “no-go zones.”

Fox issued multiple retractions over the weekend for its saturated coverage of Europe’s Muslim population after the recent Paris attacks, admitting that several reports on Muslim-only “no-go zones” were not based on fact.

The team at “Le Petit Journal” had fun with Fox’s approach toward coverage, sprinting down the streets of Paris calling every stranger a dangerous “Islamist,” and periodically screaming “Paris is the most dangerous city in the world.”

Hailing a taxi, the reporters acted horrified to see the driver had “a Muslim beard.”

“Oh my God he’s very dangerous,” they shouted in overwrought broken English, “trust me, Paris is very dangerous.”
