Glenn Beck called out

NEW YORK – Three groups are urging ABC News not to keep CNN Headline News personality Glenn Beck on as a “Good Morning America” commentator because they believe he’s biased against Arabs. The Arab American Institute, American-Arab Anti-Discrimination Committee and the Muslim Public Affairs Council all said Thursday they had written to ABC News President David Westin about Beck.

The groups said that Beck _ who’s drawing strong ratings with his evening show on CNN Headline News _ has stated on his show that Arab and Muslim Americans are apathetic to terrorism. During an interview in November with Minnesota Rep. Keith Ellison (news, bio, voting record), the first Muslim member of Congress, Beck asked him to “prove to me that you are not working with our enemies.”

“That blatant anti-Arab, anti-Muslim bias has been given credibility on a larger news show is something that concerns us,” said Arab American Institute spokeswoman Jennifer Kauffman.

Beck has said that his question to Ellison was poorly worded.
