(AP) A Fox News Channel anchor has apologized for falsely saying that President Barack Obama had offered to pay for the operation of a museum of Muslim culture "out of his own pocket" during the government shutdown.


Anchor Anna Kooiman made the remark Saturday on "Fox & Friends" during a discussion about closed facilities. She said it didn't seem fair that a World War II monument in Washington was closed, especially in the context of other things funded.


She didn't name her source, but Kooiman appeared to be influenced by a satirical news site that said Obama would use his own money to keep a Muslim culture museum open.


Kooiman tweeted an apology Sunday. It's not clear yet whether the mistake will be addressed on the air.
