White supremacist radio host Hal Turner was an FBI informant, his lawyer revealed in court today. The announcement is a confirmation of what hackers claimed nearly a year ago after allegedly gaining access to his e-mails.
Turner was arrested on June 24 for allegedly calling for the murder of three judges who supported the Chicago gun ban. The confession by his attorney came at a bond hearing Tuesday.
In July 2008, hackers -- who may or may not be connected to 4chan -- confronted Turner on his Web site's forums and claimed they had gained access to his e-mail, uncovering a message allegedly to his FBI handler in which he takes credit for "flush[ing] out another crazy."
But with this in mind, that Hal Turner is an FBI informant, and thus the proverbial "controlled opposition" that so many have alluded to lately, can anyone here think of any other very well known radio hosts that might fit the same category?

I used to listen to Alex every night, it'd be a part of my routine. Get a bath, stick on a videogame and listen to Jones. Now, I don't listen to him and you know what? I don't look at the world like I used to anymore. Everyone who tries to pass a bill isn't globalist scum & Burger king isn't the antichrist.
Turner had said in Internet postings in June that the three federal appeals judges "deserve to be killed" because they issued a ruling that upheld ordinances in Chicago and suburban Oak Park banning handguns. He included their photos and the room numbers of their chambers at the courthouse...
...Turner is also facing charges in Connecticut for urging people there to "take up arms" against state legislators.
