‘What Would Hitler Have Done With Fox News?’

The misguided lefty question of the week:

Progressives from across the country have come to Providence, Rhode Island, this weekend to party and network for the “giant family reunion for the left” — the Netroots Nation Conference. After a crushing loss Tuesday following the failed attempt to recall Governor Scott Walker, Wisconsin activists served as the reunion’s grumpy uncle.

At the “Take a Walk, Scott: Post-Mortem of the Wisconsin Recalls” session one particularly ticked-off panelist engaged in several frustrating rants slamming Walker’s reforms, campaign finance law, and the media.

“What would Hitler have done with Fox News,” exclaimed Harry Waisbren. “It’s impossible to imagine the power of propaganda system that we have right now, and there is no counter. The one percent is able to buy our media.”

The first question this guy should be concerned about is, “What would Hitler have done with political dissenters like me?” I’ll give him a hint: It has something to do with gravity and piano wire.

Funny how these people pretend the only media outlet in the country is Fox News (which I suppose is a compliment to Roger Ailes). The left owns the vast majority of mainstream media outlets — taxpayers even fund a couple of them. But Fox News, which comprises a fraction of the overall media atmosphere, is always the left’s public enemy #1 and one of the top targets for their blame whenever voters simply decide we’re on an unsustainable path.
