Blogger claims he was paid by the FBI

A story to watch from across the Atlantic

A New Jersey blogger about to stand trial on charges that he made death threats against federal judges was apparently paid by the F.B.I. in its battle against domestic terrorism, reports the New York Times

Hal Turner, received thousands of dollars from the Federal Bureau of Investigation to report on neo-Nazis and white supremacist groups and was sent undercover to Brazil,
says the paper adding that he also claims

the F.B.I. coached him to make racist, anti-Semitic and other threatening statements on his Internet radio show, but the newspaper also found that many federal officials were concerned that his audience might follow up on his violent speech.
