NEW YORK (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 didn't cite a source, but a satirical news site called "National Report" had posted a story saying Obama had used his own money to keep a Muslim museum open.

Kooiman sent an apology on Twitter Sunday. Fox said it will correct the story on the air this coming Saturday
