ADL Calls Beck 'Fearmonger-In-Chief'
November 18, 2009 at 5:08 AM (PT)
The ANTI-DEFAMATION LEAGUE is complaining that PREMIERE RADIO NETWORKS and FOX SPORTS RADIO host GLENN BECK is the nation's leading mainstream media figure stoking anti-government sentiment, which it describes as "demonizing President OBAMA and promoting conspiracy theories about his administration."
The ADL distinguishes BECK, which it calls the "fearmonger-in-chief," from other critics like RUSH LIMBAUGH or SEAN HANNITY by noting that the latter hosts do not use their shows as platforms for conspiracy theories and extremist guests.
The criticism of BECK is included in a new ADL report, "Rage Grows in AMERICA: Anti-Government Conspiracies."
