One Person Thinks that the Right Needs to Tone Down their Rhetoric

In the wake of the recent tragedy, one person you might not have expected has come out to not simply ask, but demand, that the right (or at least a large, paid swath of it) tone down their rhetoric.

This person is not a democrat or a journalist (not in any sense of the word anyway). This person is none other than Roger Ailes, the CEO of Fox News.

Now granted, he also implicated "the other side" (MSNBC?) in a need of a new, softer use of soundbites. But this is still quite an admonition, if not outright recognition, of a problem in his own house. Maybe all of these birds falling from the sky has given Ailes. Whatever it is, our country will be better if he can stand by this instruction for more than a long weekend. Time will tell.
