Fox News Chief Roger Ailes had plenty to say about others in the media in an interview with The Daily Beast’s Howard Kurtz, according to The Hollywood Reporter.
Among the highlights, Ailes said of NPR execs, “They are, of course, Nazis,” referring to the high-profile firing of Juan Williams over comments he made about being afraid of airline passengers who appear to be Muslim. “They are the left wing of Nazism," Ailes said of the NPR executives. "These guys don’t want any other point of view. They don’t even feel guilty using tax dollars to spout their propaganda.”
Ailes, who sat down recently for a long political chat with “Daily Show” host Jon Stewart, credited Stewart as being smart but added, “He’s 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.”
The Fox News boss had kind words for Fox host Bill O’Reilly, saying, “He’s moved to the left. He’s been very fair and balanced on Obama, Bush, everyone.”
