Fox News rebuked by Anti-Defamation League

As a Jew, I find it odious when overt anti-Semites like Anthony Martin (sample prose from his insane court filings and career below) are given a platform on network television to spew hate:

"In 1986, he ran for Congress in Illinois under this campaign committee: “The Anthony R. Martin-Trigona Congressional Campaign to Exterminate Jew Power in America,” and he wrote sympathetically of the Holocaust. As The Washington Times described this year:

In a New York bankruptcy case, he referred to a judge as a “crooked, slimy Jew.”

During the bankruptcy dispute, he filed a civil-rights
lawsuit claiming Jewish bankruptcy judges and lawyers were
conspiring to steal his property. He asked a court to bar “any Jew
from having anything to do with plaintiff’s property.”

In another motion in the case, he wrote: “I am able to understand
how the Holocaust took place, and with every passing day feel less
and less sorry that it did, when Jew survivors are operating as a
wolf pack to steal my property.”

Some of you reading this may watch Fox News. You may think that they "tell it like it is" or that they are "fair and balanced." I can't tell you how pissed off it makes me to have a so-called news organization run a program with Sean Hannity featuring this poor excuse for a human being- and they ran it as if he was (as the
caption stated) an "author and reporter." Why did Fox feature a person who would exterminate me if only he had the power? Because he serves Fox's agenda to do everything possible to smear the presidential candidate whom they do not want to win.

From Glenn Greenwald:

"Over the weekend, Sean Hannity hosted a show on Fox News entitled "Obama & Friends: The History of Radicalism." *The star of Hannity’s smear fest was none other than Andy Martin*, who was featured as an honored, credible investigator and source to expose “the real Barack Obama.” There wasn’t a hostile or adversarial word uttered by Hannity about or towards Martin. To the contrary, Martin’s claims were the basis for many of the Fox News show’s allegations against Obama. This is how Fox described him on-screen when he spoke: “*Andy Martin, AUTHOR & JOURNALIST*”:"

Here is what the Anti Defamation League (the organization founded after the lynching and murder of Leo Frank, the Jew wrongly convicted of murdering Mary Phagan in 1915 in north Georgia) had to say to Fox about the program featuring Mr. Martin,

Dear Mr. Hannity:

We were astonished to see that during the October 5, 2008 edition of Hannity's America, you interviewed Anthony Martin, a man with an extensive track record of making anti-Semitic and anti-Israel remarks.

A person who espouses such odious views ought not to be given the opportunity to enhance his credentials or his standing by appearing on /Hannity's America/.
