CNN has a better video consisting exclusively of the segment with Harry Hughes. Note that Rick Sanchez starts out grilling Hughes exclusively on the NSM's 25 Points of National Socialism, focusing extensively upon points 4 and 7. Hughes handles it well, giving direct answers to Sanchez' questions and not equivocating, evading, or sugarcoating in any way. Hughes attempted to inform people about control and manipulation of the mass media, but time constraints prevented him from identifying the group which dominates the media. Towards the end of the segment, Sanchez asked Hughes how he would determine "who is White", and although Hughes cited the standards promulgated by National Socialist Germany, admitted the problem is more complex here and it would have to be ultimately decided by committee.

Later on, Harry Hughes posted his reaction on his blog, replicated in part below:
During this interview, hundreds of protesters, some of them disorderly, were out in the street protesting SB 1070.
The producer and technicians were friendly. Being involved in the politically and socially volatile matters I engage in, I expect the worst when it comes to interviews. Most journalists enjoy doing “hit pieces” and “ambushes”. It’s a “bait and switch” tactic. I was told we’d be discussing our patrols and in reality, I was drilled on National Socialist ideology.
Today’s interview turned out to be an “ambush“. I was quickly put on the spot defending my position. I was totally prepared and didn’t pause or skip a beat. I’m certain, Rick Sanchez didn’t dig what I had to say.
Hughes is right; there was very little discussion about the patrols in the Vekol Valley, perhaps because the accounts of the patrols would rebut the popular negative stereotypes about national socialists. The patrol group, known as Ready's Rangers (read extensive Stormfront thread about them HERE) are not vigilantes; when they encounter illegals, they detain them, but offer them water, food, and even first aid if needed.
