NPR’s Nazis

For indispensable reporting on the coronavirus crisis, the election, and more, subscribe to the Mother Jones Daily newsletter.


Fox News chief Roger Ailes goes off the reservation about NPR executives:

They are, of course, Nazis. They have a kind of Nazi attitude. They are the left wing of Nazism.

Come on, Roger. Sure, NPR executives are Nazis. That goes without saying. But the left wing of Nazism? Don’t you know that Jonah Goldberg long ago demonstrated that Nazis were actually liberals? This means that NPR executives are the Nazi wing of Nazism. Please clear this up with your staff ASAP before something like this gets on the air.

FACT:

Mother Jones was founded as a nonprofit in 1976 because we knew corporations and the wealthy wouldn't fund the type of hard-hitting journalism we set out to do.

If you value what you get from Mother Jones, please join us with a tax-deductible donation today so we can keep on doing the type of journalism 2020 demands.
