Video: Jon Stewart Rips Fox News Chief Roger Ailes

| by Michael Allen

On 'The Daily Show,' Tuesday night, host Jon Stewart slammed Fox News head Roger Ailes for saying that Stewart had confessed that he’s a socialist (video below).

Stewart said that Ailes failed to publicly mention his plans [from years ago during their meeting] “to undermine the role of an independent press" and create a "propaganda juggernaut from under the guise of a news organization” [which turned out to be Fox News].

Stewart then played his "socialist confession" from 2000, in which he actually said “I don’t believe in state-controlled industry, but there is value in some policies that derive from a more socialist ethos.”
