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."
