A passionate James O'Brien said the media are to blame for spreading the bile of Anjem Choudary.

The hate preacher was jailed after police sifted through billions of documents to find evidence that he  invited support for ISIS.

James said that he was no different to the thousands of other crazy people spouting nonsense of the internet - but because the media invited him on to be controversial.

Speaking on his LBC show, he said: "There are people spouting hateful nonsense into the internet everywhere you look now in this country.

"Why would you pick one of them up and turn them into a celebrity? Because that is what he became?

"And who made him a celebrity? It wasn't his cretinous followers. It wasn't his attention-seeking acolytes. It wasn't his talents, his abilities or his insights. And it certainly wasn't his God.

"What made him famous was people who do what I do for a living.

"People who looked at the response he generated and thought 'Yeah, we'll have some of that'."
