Fox News Execs Meet Following Beck Holocaust Comments

beck_8-3.jpgYahoo! News’ Michael Calderone writes of a July 26 meeting involving Fox News chairman and founder Roger Ailes as well as SVP Joel Cheatwood. They reportedly met with Simon Greer of Jewish Funds for Justice regarding comments host Glenn Beck had made recently on his radio program:

Simon Greer, chief executive of Jewish Funds for Justice, told The Upshot that when Greer approached them, Ailes and senior vice president Joel Cheatwood agreed that Beck crossed the line in comparing Greer’s worldview to that of the Nazis and promised to speak with Beck about the matter. Two days later, Greer said he received a handwritten letter from Beck.

Beck’s initial comments were in reaction to a piece Greer had written for the Washington Post.

UPDATE: Cheatwood denies this account of the meeting to TVNewser. Read his version here.
