Fox News President Roger Ailes has apologized to the Anti-Defamation League for using the term “Nazi” to describe NPR officials in an interview with The Daily Beast, and the ADL has accepted his apology, Politico reports. Ailes told The Daily Beast, “They [NPR] are, of course, Nazis. They have a kind of Nazi attitude. They are the left wing of Nazism. These guys don’t want any other point of view.”

Roger Ailes, Abe Foxman, Nazi, FPRBut in a letter to ADL National Director Abe Foxman, Ailes wrote, “I was of course ad-libbing and should not have chosen that word. But I was angry at the time because of NPR’s willingness to censor Juan Williams for not being liberal enough.”

Holocaust survivor Foxman replied: “I welcome Roger Ailes’ apology, which is as sincere as it is heartfelt. Nazi comparisons of this nature are clearly inappropriate and offensive. While I wish Roger had never invoked that terminology, I appreciate his efforts to immediately reach out and to retract his words before they did any further harm.”
