People thought it was funny/crazy when Fox News honcho Roger Ailes said today that NPR executives are “the left wing of Nazism.” (Related! Now would be a good time to remind everyone that NPR’s federal funding is under 10% of its budget.) In any event, people made some jokes about NPR’s Nazi programming lineup, and how stupid this all was, and now Jake Tapper has stormed off the Internet. To be fair, “being against Holocaust jokes” is sort of a low bar in standards. We’ll be back with more breaking news after this commercial message. Hello, welcome back. For those still with us, Jake Tapper is back on Twitter!
So for the record, “going off Twitter” means “not Tweeting for 24 minutes.”
Hmm, what else. OH RIGHT THE HEAD OF FOX NEWS IS GOING AROUND COMPARING NPR TO HITLER????
