Top television and radio host Glenn Beck said in an interview with Megyn Kelly on Fox News that he regrets some of his time at the cable network, when he hosted his own show, and admitted that he ratcheted rhetoric that helped drive a political wedge in America.
"I remember [my time on Fox] as an awful lot of fun and that I made an awful lot of mistakes," Mr. Beck said on Fox News on Tuesday night. "I think I played a role, unfortunately, in helping tear the country apart."
He also said if he could hit the rewind button, that he'd focus more on uniting, not dividing.
"I wish I could go back and be more uniting in my language," he said, Politico reported. "I didn't realize how really fragile the people were...
Mr. Beck's show ran on Fox News between 2009 and 2011...

He sounds like a drunk.
Whaaaaa? Is he saying that we'd all be better if we were united happily under The Won's lash?
Funny how those Mormons roll. They must have a different version of the bible or something.
We live in the age of, “the Wuss is King!”
Can’t he just ask Boehner out on an extended date to the other side of the planet or something.
He is an admitted alcoholic and supposedly doesn’t drink anymore.
Funny, I don’t recall him dividing the country just reporting the facts.
There is no such thing as regrets because at the time it was exactly what you wanted.
Weird. Barry Soetoro doesn’t regret his part in it. I would have thought Barry was the sissy man between the two.
He gives himself too much credit.
Delusions of grandeur.
I’m still waiting to hear about this “Special Announcement” that would shock the United States. I do believe this was back in the fall of 2013.
I’ve said from the start, he is a Fake and a Fraud. Same mold as Geraldo Rivera.
Yep, he gave some good history lessons....Dems and liberals have seen to it to rewrite history books- and that is what kids are learning today...
Obama has set this country back 50 years...and he will never feel bad nor apologize for his role in it.
Too much starch in the ole magic underwear?
BS. He’s always been a little emotionally unstable. That’s just his way. Some men just get emotional easily.
I remember a few of his investigative journalist pieces to be extraordinarily good... whatever you think of his odd style.
He was calling out Soros before it was popular to call out Soros.
Sometimes it’s not rhetoric. Sometimes it is just plain truth. If they happen to overlap, it just means the issue is important.
I wasn’t aware that glenn beck held so much power and that everyone obeyed him.
Same here. Delusional?
Somebody has made him an offer he feels he cannot refuse.
and Prager, Medved, Hannity, Levin, Limbaugh, Savage, Schultz, Goodman, Basheer, Gupta, ad infinitum. Another clown show designed to distract people.
He is a weird genius. He’s so protean. That’s what makes him interesting. Rush is Rush and always will be. Same with Hannity. You never know what your are going to hear from Beck. Kind of like Savage.
How much did Soros pay him?
I’d say you hit the nail on the head. What percentage of people in this divided nation even know who he is?
Personally, I’m happy about all this. Years ago when his show was popular, certain people tore me apart for suggesting this man was a complete nutcase.
Who watched him so much that he managed to tear the entire country apart? What an ego! Did he cry when he said this?
The other thing that makes him fascinating, he is building a gigantic media empire. In plain sight. But nobody’s paying attention to it.
I’m waiting for Olbermann’s repentance.
LOL.... I was banned from the 1210AM “Big Talker”, in Philadelphia when he first surfaced after 9-11. He was supposed to be, their calling card.
Beck is a goofball. A rich, successful goofball,but still a goofball. He should be listened to as much as Kim Kardashian.
Probably, maybe he was crying about ‘heterofascism’?
We are lost beyond redemption. Glenn Beck can or not be trusted by what he says.... MEANWHILE we have BOEHNER, PELOSI, REID, OBAMA. Discount everything that Beck has to say.... WHAT AN ORANIZED STUPIDITY!
Im waiting for his personal apologies to Al Sharpton
that would be the sign that nobodies really home.
“GET OFF MY PHONE!” Remix
It also comes not long after Edward Snowden ratted out the NSA. You KNOW Beck the alcoholic has some pretty big skeletons in his closet. And I noticed he came back to Fox to apologize. That tells me he’s doing what he’s being told to do. JMO
His radio show is a 3 hour ad for the blaze or whatever ghost written book of the month he has out. NutJob... the 2 parrots/co-hosts on his show are there to prop him up in his whackiness. He sets conservatives back and tarnishes the brand.
Sadly yes. Used to love that guy but not any longer.
Delusions of grandeur.
= = = = ==
I am probably ‘fantasizing’ but on the occasion I may listen to the ‘Rush wannabees’ if a TV show or Political Panel mentions ‘Talk radio being disruptive’ - or such - those whose name may not be mentioned fall all over themselves, looking for ‘recognition’.
Much like the Sopranos when the ‘papers named names for the Federal Indictments, Christopher was driving himself into a frenzy because his name was NOT in the paper’.
The 3 ‘do funnys’ were talking about fame and one said:
“I want to be a ballet dancer and receive world wide acclaim for my talents”.
“I want to be a writer and write about my experiences in life, have a best seller and be applauded”
“I want to be a pitcher for the Mets or Yanks. I will get the ball, walk around the mound, get the resin bag, walk some more and some Wise Guy New Yorker will yell out:
JUST THROW THE BALL C-S....er.
RECOGNITION, ALL I AM AFTER IS RECOGNITION”.
To think that Beck alone has contributed to the division of this nation is totally BS. The guy reminds me of some liberal who thinks history started the day they were born. Beck has tried to infuse some historical facts but whenever I watched his show I kept thinking, “Dude, what rock have you been hiding under?”
It is very difficult NOT to meet the ‘Progressive’s hysteria with that of your own. It then becomes the ol’ ‘wrestling with a pig’ .
Haven’t you noticed? Beck and Boner don’t cry anymore.
I heard him say that, and it mystified me.
He’s done a lot of good work. He seems to be throwing dirt on the good work he’s done.
Pat and Stu aren’t the worst. They’re just goofballs. The real problem is people like Will Cain and S.E. Cupp. They are toxic waste.
The average Joe who is NOT a news junkie (like me) is saying ‘Glen Who?”. Mr. Beck, you do a lot of charitable good, and you make a fantastic televised teacher of history and sociology, but you are no Moses. There was no parting of the seas, as you most ruefully elude to.
Funny, I dont recall him dividing the country just reporting the facts.”
I really learned a lot I didn’t know the few times I watched his program. Seems to me like he was one of the few who was reporting the facts. Seems rather strange that he would be apologizing for sharing the truth. The entire scenario is rather eery.
Glen’s synopsis; ‘I’m a Lover, Not a Fighter!”
He will become a communist before this is all over. Beck is insane... I mean truly medically insane.
Glenn Beck Laments the Biggest Language Coup in the History of the World
Glenn Beck told his audience Wednesday that abortion has never been one of his primary political issues. Its an extremely divisive topic, he said, and most of the time the conversation ends with people shouting phrases like war on women.
But, Beck said, because both political parties have said that they plan to make abortion one of the main issues this election year, and New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo has just made being pro-life a big reason for not being welcome in his state, Beck said its time to talk about it.
The biggest problem with this debate is that we, as conservatives, have lost [the argument], Beck said. We lost it the day we allowed abortion supporters to get away with the biggest language coup in the history of the world.
He has already stated he “stands with GLAAD”. GLAAD being a front group for CPUSA.
Hey Beck is enlightened... he says we can compromise with communists, anarchists, satanists and terrorists. Kum Bah Yah baby!
Exactly. He was doing real reporting on stuff that no one else would touch. I don't understand why he's throwing dirt on that.

Rut roh. Did the regime get to him too?
