'Daily Show' Slams Fox News for Criticizing Others' Extreme Rhetoric and Denying Their Own (VIDEO)

Jon Stewart Slams Megyn Kelly on 'Daily Show'Fox News anchor Megyn Kelly recently criticized democratic Rep. Steve Cohen for including some extreme rhetoric in his comments on President Obama's health care reforms.

"[Saying that] it's a government takeover of health care [is] a big lie, just like Goebbels," said Cohen, referring to Adolf Hitler's propaganda minister. "The Germans said enough about the Jews, and the people believed it."

Kelly took issue with the congressman's choice of words. Democratic strategist Richard Socarides told Kelly, "The leading commentators on this network use this kind of language." She protested, "That's just not true."

Trust 'The Daily Show' (weeknights, 11PM ET on COM) to then find clips of Fox News' Bill O'Reilly comparing some blogs to Hitler's publicity machine, and Glenn Beck calling a pro-Obama book and video "propaganda pieces and, I'm telling you, they would make Joseph Goebbels proud."

The clip up there really doesn't do the segment justice.

I dare anyone who watches Fox News to watch the full segment here.

Fox News attacking Cohen for his remarks is hypocritical. That full segment is UNDENIABLE PROOF.
