Megyn Kelly pushed back against a guest's assertion that Fox News commentators make regular references to Nazis on the air, telling him it was "just not true."
Kelly and her guest, former Clinton adviser Richard Socarides, were discussing Rep. Steve Cohen's comparison of the GOP to Nazi propagandist Joseph Goebbels during a debate on health care. Socarides said he disagreed with Cohen's comparison, but that Fox News had things to answer for as well.
"Every night on the very network that we're on right now, the leading commentators on this network use this very language," he said.
"That's just not true, Richard," Kelly said. "...I don't if you sit and watch our programming every night, but I watch it every day and you're wrong."
Hopefully Kelly wasn't watching Glenn Beck's program later on Thursday. Beck used Cohen's remarks to make a slew of Nazi references and comparisons.
"I'm glad to know he thinks Republicans learned their tactics from Goebbels," Beck said of Cohen, "but does he know that Goebbels learned his tactics from the progressives?"
Later, Beck compared Obama aide Cass Sunstein's so-called "Nudge" theory to the so-called "progressive" tactics that he said formed the basis of Goebbel's thinking. "Progressive tactics are Nazi tactics," Beck said. "Nazi tactics are progressive tactics."
