Roger Ailes, I Don't Like Him

Howard Kurtz did an interview with Roger Ailes where he said, among other things:

“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. They don’t even feel guilty using tax dollars to spout their propaganda. They are basically Air America with government funding to keep them alive.”

“He (John Stewart) hates conservative views. He hates conservative thoughts. He hates conservative verbiage. He hates conservatives.”
and most importantly upon Kurtz's suggestion the Fox has moved further to the right

“Bill has not moved to the right,” Ailes says. “He’s moved to the left. He’s been very fair and balanced on Obama, Bush, everyone.”
That's the really special one, I think, because it kind of shows you that reason Fox news can be in its own self-delusional and deceitful world is because it's boss in his own self-delusional and deceitful world. Kurtz didn't ask what O'Reilly had done, he asked what the network had done. And Ailes responded by answering a different and more self-satisfactory answer. I don't like him.

Roger Ailes' comments on "Nazis" at NPR are a classic case of projection. A therapist could make a lot of money off of that one.
