Roger Ailes defends Beck’s Stalin reference as ‘accurate’
Fox News President Roger Ailes defended his network while appearing on ABC Sunday. In October of 2009, one of Fox News’ premiere stars, Glenn Beck, referenced a “killing spree” conducted by Joseph Stalin while talking about President Barack Obama.
Ailes said the reference was appropriate because “he was talking about Hitler and Stalin slaughtering people.”
