Fox's Ailes Castigates NPR as 'Left Wing of Nazism'

Wednesday, 17 Nov 2010 04:37 PM

Liberals may criticize Fox News as biased toward conservatives. But the Fox network’s president, Roger Ailes, contends that liberal NPR actually is the one guilty of extreme bias, Politico reports. “They [NPR] are, of course, Nazis,” Ailes tells The Daily Beast. “They have a kind of Nazi attitude. They are the left wing of Nazism. These guys don’t want any other point of view.”

Ailes, Fox, NPR, NaziAs for Juan Williams, whom NPR fired last month after saying on Bill O’Reilly’s Fox show that he gets nervous around Muslim airline passengers, Ailes calls him a "pure liberal." Fox hired Williams shortly after NPR dumped him. Williams’ firing propelled criticism from both conservatives and liberals, and generated moves in Congress to pull public funding from NPR’s parent Public Broadcasting System.

House Republicans vowed Wednesday that they would force a vote on defunding NPR.

Along those lines, Republican Reps. Joe Barton and Michael Burgess of Texas wrote to the Government Accountability Office today urging it to investigate how NPR spends its money. "Were any federally appropriated funds expended in the course of any internal deliberations, negotiations, or drafting tasks carried out pursuant to NPR’s October 20 decision to terminate its contract with Williams?" the letter said.

Meanwhile, during Ailes’ interview, he flipped networks to lob another liberal accusation, Ailes described Comedy Central’s Jon Stewart as “crazy. If it wasn’t polarized, he couldn’t make a living. He makes a living by attacking conservatives and stirring up a liberal base against it. He loves polarization. He depends on it. If liberals and conservatives are all getting along, how good would that show be? It’d be a bomb.”
