I think you can get the gist of this without me mangling it with some terrible translation.

L'opération "Shut the f**k up" ("Fermez-la") du "Petit Journal" est arrivée à ses fins: ses téléspectateurs ont inondé les boîtes mails des dirigeants de la chaîne, la contraignant à battre sa coulpe.

Deux pour le prix d'une. Fox News s'est excusée doublement, auprès des Français et Britanniques, suite à ses affirmations acadabrantesques sur l'existence de "no go zones" à Birmingham et à Paris. L'offensive du Petit Journal (intitulée Shut the f** up Fox News), qui a appelé à à inonder d'emails la direction de la chaîne aura donc eu raison de Fox News, qui n'avait pas souhaité répondre dans un premier temps. Yann Barthès, le présentateur du "Petit Journal" avait encouragé ses spectateurs à faire de la messagerie de Michael Clemente, le PDG de la chaîne, une "no go zone". Ils se sont visiblement mobilisés en nombre.
