Seth Meyers Urges the Media to Stop Calling Nazis the “Alt-Right” on ‘Late Night’

Here’s a clip from last night’s Late Night, where Seth Meyers calls attention to the media normalizing the so-called “alt-right” in the wake of Trump winning the election and hiring white nationalist Steve Bannon as his chief advisor. “‘Alt-right’ is the name they picked for themselves — you don’t have to use it. If zombies wanted to be called ‘post-life brain foodies,’ we’d still call them zombies. If it looks like a duck and talks like a duck and steps like a goose, it’s a Nazi,” Meyers says. “Get your shit together, media. Calling Nazis and white supremacists the ‘alt-right’ is like calling O.J. Simpson a cutlery enthusiast.”
