Fox News' Glenn Beck Named 2009 "Misinformer of the Year"

| by DeepDiveAdmin

The group "Media Matters" has named controversial Fox News host Glenn Beck the 2009 Misinformer of the Year.

On its website, "Media Matters" runs down just a few of the reasons it awarded Beck the dubious honor:

When he wasn't calling the president a racist, portraying progressive leaders as vampires who can only be stopped by "driv[ing] a stake through the heart of the bloodsuckers," or pushing the legitimacy of seceding from the country, Beck obsessively compared Democrats in Washington to Nazis and fascists and the early days of Adolf Hitler." He wondered, "Is this where we're headed," while showing images of Hitler, Stalin, and Lenin; decoded the secret language of Marxists; and the government to "heroin pushers" who were "using smiley-faced fascism to grow the nanny state."
