While attacking Rep. Steve Cohen for his truthful statement that the GOP has indeed used the same tactics employed by Nazi propagandist Joseph Goebbels, Fox's Megyn Kelly argued with former Clinton adviser Richard Socarides that Fox News hasn't ever had any of their hosts invoking Nazi and Holocaust imagery.

Socarides noted adroitly that "on the very network that we're on right now, the leading commenters on this network use this kind of language." Kelly shot back: "It's just not true! ... I don't know if you sit and watch our programming every night, but I watch it every day and you're wrong."

As our friends at Media Matters point out, that's just not true.

They've got a long list of examples and I'll just say, go read their post for some rebuttal to Kelly's nonsense.

Fox's Kelly Absurdly Claims Fox Personalities Do Not Invoke Nazis

Our own Dave Neiwert has a very long list of posts and Glenn Beck invoking the Nazis as well. We've included some of these in the video above.

In fact, as you can see from the video, Beck went on the air later that same day and declared:

BECK: Nazi tactics are progressive tactics first.

Wonder if Kelly was watching. She claimed that she watches Fox's programming and offered that as some sort of proof that her colleagues were telling the truth on the air. All she did is prove that she either doesn't watch her fellow Fox hosts' shows, or she doesn't care that they're as dishonest with their commentary on their programs as she is. I would say the latter is probably the case. Being willing to lie and carry water for Republicans pays pretty well over at Fox and Kelly knows where her bread is buttered.
