Between giving bigot Bill Donohue a platform to spout his hatred and glibly comparing a fight for LGBT rights to the abominable attack on Charlie Hebdo, Fox News has done anything but handle political discussion around Paris, France with the objective professionalism one would expect from a station that dares call itself a “news” source. In fact, their coverage has reached such an offensive point that Paris Mayor Anne Hidalgo has announced plans to sue the media giant.
CNN’s Christiane Amanpour broke the news over Twitter:

And Hidalgo further expressed her disdain to her followers:
Je suis bien sûr choquée par la bêtise stigmatisante de Fox News : @BilldeBlasio et moi irons d’ailleurs dans le 19e cet après-midi
— Anne Hidalgo (@Anne_Hidalgo) January 20, 2015
Which roughly translates as: “I am of course shocked at the stigmatizing stupidity of Fox News. Bill DeBlasio and I will be at the 19th [District] this afternoon.”
