Tell Fox News: Newt Gingrich Too Extreme Even For Fox News

Reported by Ellen - May 30, 2010 -

CREDO Action has a petition demanding that Fox News terminate Newt Gingrich's employment and publicly condemn his statements comparing President Obama's administration to Nazi Germany. Gingrich has written a book stating that President Obama and the Democrats are trying to impose a "secular-socialist machine represent(ing) as great a threat to America as Nazi Germany or the Soviet Union once did."

CREDO writes,

FOX News' own Chris Wallace called the Nazi comparison "wildly over the top." And yet Gingrich's employers at FOX News continue to give him a platform for promoting these views. In an appearance on FOX's "On the Record" Gingrich defended his Nazi comparison, saying he made a "reasoned and compelling argument."

Even for FOX this goes too far. If Newt Gingrich wants to peddle his hate speech, he has a right to do it on the tea party circuit or in extremist rightwing propaganda publications. But it is far beyond acceptable for a national news outlet, even one as conservative as FOX News, to give him a paid platform for promoting a view that "diminishes the horror of Holocaust.

Please sign the petition and tell FOX News: Condemn Gingrich's Nazi comparison statement and end his employment as a paid news commentator.
