Blog ››› ››› MATT GERTZ

On today's edition of Democracy Now!, anchor Amy Goodman covered Media Matters for America's interview with Byron Williams, who was arrested following a shootout with police while reportedly on his way "to start a revolution by traveling to San Francisco and killing people of importance at the Tides Foundation and the ACLU."

Goodman reported that Williams "has admitted it was Fox News host Glenn Beck who inspired him to plot the assassination of employees of the ACLU and the Tides Foundation," and noted our reporting that "in the 18 months before the shooting, Beck used his Fox News show to attack the Tides Foundation 29 times, claiming that the small foundation is part of a secret George Soros-funded plot to infiltrate and gain control of big businesses and to indoctrinate the youth of America."
