Ailes Sorry for ‘Nazi’ Comment

Does this mean they’ve forgiven him for Glenn Beck’s anti-Semitic George Soros documentary too? Fox News Chairman Roger Ailes has apologized to the Anti-Defamation League for telling The Daily Beast’s Howard Kurtz that NPR is run by “Nazis.” Ailes explained, “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.” Ailes also apologized "for using 'Nazi' when in my now considered opinion 'nasty, inflexible bigot' would have worked better." ADL Director Abe Foxman said, “I welcome Roger Ailes’ apology, which is sincere as it is heartfelt.”
