Fun with Comparisons

So Ted Turner has compared Fox News to Hilter. Obviously he's not the brightest bulb in the media firmament, which is saying something. I'm not a big fan of Fox News or Turner (or Hitler for that matter). But since we're comparing media outlets to 20th century politicians, let's have a little fun with it.

CNN - Quisling, or maybe Chamberlain
ABC - Trotsky (because they are ghoulish)
Germany's Stern magazine - George Wallace
Reuters - Grand Mufti al-Husayni
AFP - Petain
BBC - Oswald Mosley
Al Jazzera - Goebbels (no link required)
CBS - Franz Ferdinand ('cause they're finished - you know what I'm talking about)

Update: Welcome Wizbang readers (and thanks Kevin). Here's some other posts you may enjoy, Salon Goes Confederate, Giggling at the Fatwa or 'Submission' and the Shock of the Un-shocking.
