ADL: Beck Is Top Hate Monger
This is the kind of administration attack inspired by Glenn Beck, argues a report by the Anti-Defmation League.   (?MeetTheCrazies)

Right-wing Fox mouth Glenn Beck is the most toxic media hate monger operating in the US today, according to a report by the Anti-Defamation League. "Beck has made a habit of demonizing President Obama and promoting conspiracy theories about his administration," the report states. He "has even gone so far as to make comparisons between Hitler and Obama and to promote the idea that the president is dangerous."

While other conservative critics such as Rush Limbaugh and Sean Hannity routinely attack the Democratic administration, Beck "repeatedly stokes the fires of anti-government anger" by providing a platform to conspiracy theorists and right-wing extremists, the report concludes. No word yet from Beck on how he feels about being No. 1, reports the New York Daily News.
