“In the wave of the Paris attacks, several guests on this program mentioned ‘no-go zones’ in France,” Cooper said. “I didn’t challenge them and twice referred to them as well. I should have been more skeptical,” he added, and promised he would not make the same mistake again.
After a couple days of extensive reporting on Fox News Channel’s apology for its characterizations of Muslim “no-go zones” in Europe, Anderson Cooper tonight apologized for doing same on CNN.
“On Monday night on this program, we aired a report that was critical of Louisiana Gov.
