Fox News CEO Roger Ailes takes personal and moral responsibility - cornerstones of conservative ideology - by admitting his right-wing propaganda network is exactly like a person who erroneously screams "fire" in a crowded theater or a white supremacist who incites hatred and violence - a clear and present danger to the American public.

"Robert Dear may have been the one firing the bullets on Friday, but right-wing propaganda outlets masquerading as news outlets just like us are definitely morally culpable for encouraging people like him to hate Planned Parenthood and abortion so much they act out violently," confessed Fox News CEO Roger Ailes, who also accepted responsibility for "that whole crazy 'guns everywhere thing.'"
Ailes added, "First, we tell our viewers everyone is lying to them, except us. Then we ignore inconvenient facts and create a narrative where we tell people like Robert Dear they are victims of whatever injustices we think of. As far as Planned Parenthood is concerned, we have essentially turned it into a murder mill for babies."

"In fact, Fox News has been so effective at riling-up angry conservatives that right-wing domestic terrorism has killed more Americans than Islamic-extremists have since 9/11," stated Ailes, who declared he was proud to know Fox News viewers were not only the most uninformed Americans, but the most misinformed ones.
Mr. Ailes also admitted, "Fox News couldn't get those kind of results without self-serving politicians like Republican presidential candidates Ted Cruz, Carly Fiorina, and Mike Huckabee promoting the hate-filled lies we purposely disseminate to divide Americans. They are punch-drinking, true believers."
Senator Ted Cruz of Texas, former Hewlett-Packard CEO Carly Fiorina, and former Governor of Arkansas Mike Huckabee also declared responsibility for the Friday attack on Planned Parenthood, as well as future attacks due to the hate-filled rhetoric they intended to continue using.
