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...

My German mother often tells me to be careful of who you hate (or become immersed in knowledge of) because you soon become that which you hate. “When you dance with the devil, the devil don’t change. The devil changes you.”
I used to defend him against those charges... I apologize to all FReepers... I was wrong to do so.
Exactly. This guy is the Mormon Elmer Gantry.
He has become an arrogant dumbass. So much for an alternative to the left wing news. I will not give this idiot a penny.
I just get the impression that Beck is emotionally unstable.

>> “This guy is the Mormon Elmer Gantry.” <<
By Jove, I think he’s got it!
I know... disgusting.
Anything particular, or just general fatigue?
Thats strange I just thought he was nuts
Loved how he “educated” us with his many shows on the tangled web of the Communists w/in our country......but I suspect he got most of his material from David Horowitz.
I appreciate his work on this....but I am becoming tired of his show. Pat is amusing....but, for goodness sake....Stu is boring as SNOT....as well as Jeffy. It’s tiring.
I still tune in but I’ve found myself turning on Chris Plante for a refreshing change in the morning.

He’s not without his flaws. But I like him. The good he has done far outweighs the bad.
Oh great, next thing you know Beck will cry on script. (Ask Schnitt).
Ever since the first time I listened to him on AM radio he came across to me as a used car salesman and I don’t know why.
No, he is taking money from undesirable elements to build what he thinks is an empire to save America... he thinks GOD is guiding him... he says so... and the men that have the money to back him have agendas... and he must meet their demands or he will lose every cent that he has... which he has sunken into his media machine. Beck is in self preservation mode, driven by the same delusion that obama was driven by... “We are the ones that we have been waiting for”... he has a messiah complex... and it is on display every morning.
>> “I don’t understand why he’s throwing dirt on that.” <<
He’s having his John Roberts moment.
Amen Gris... I try hard to vanquish hate from my heart. I do not hate Beck or even dislike the man. I have no respect left for him. I did at one time... but respect is earned and once lost... is mighty hard to regain.
You took the words right out of my mouth. That was exactly the first thought that came into my mind.
I suppose we need to 'sugar coat' the truth now in his eyes.
and on what basis do you think he does???
wish he would have given us more hope though...and more concrete ideas to change things or ways to prepare other than buying gold...
Levin has given us more info on how to change the course through the Constitution.
you obviously need to answer the phone...Alex Jones is calling.... oh and pass the tin foil please
Mr. Beck is fooling himself. The country is in permanent decline with or without him.
I agree with FREEPERS who have said he had done a lot of good.
His special on Soros was EXCELLENT.
But does he think we need more wishy washy conservatives?
Had this been his approach I don’t think most of us would have ever heard of him.
Gawd! These narcissistic azzholes give themselves waaaay too much credit.
Beck is going “Kinder/Gentler”. Where have I heard that before? That is so weird... it is like someone else already tried that tactic.
~~~”I wish I could go back and be more uniting in my language,”~~~
Good grief. They’ve gotten to him.
One way or another, he’s drank the koolaid.
Are we sure this sudden change of heart didn’t come right after he received some printouts from the NSA. Sort of reminds me of Robert’s flip on Obamacare
What happened to Beck?
His only strong point was that he spoke honestly and unapologetically about the subject at hand.
So what if he torqued a few million liberal jaws?
Now he is backing down like run-of-the-mill liberals and politicians.
He is against the homosexual agenda, but is also against burning them alive in ovens. I think that is totally reasonable.
I asked you yesterday in your “blog” post. Are you a subscriber to The Blaze?
> Rut roh. Did the regime get to him too
Something is up. Someone caught him with his pants down and have brought him into “compliance”
~~~Funny, I dont recall him dividing the country just reporting the facts.~~~
That’s what I thought, too.
No. I do not give my money to them.
OK now that was definitely funny
Not one single FReeper would ever want to nazi anyone because they are gay. My problem with Beck and the Olympics was that he was asking obama to enter the arena with many gays and link arm in arm with them to show solidarity and united opposition to Putin. Putin is trying to protect the young children in the Russian society from the evil of this sin. The man that ranted about ovens is a crazy personality that according to what I have read... is somewhat of a joke in Russia. He is like those lunatics at the Westboro Baptist Church in Kentucky. One must not judge Americans by those idiots and one must not judge Russians by their idiots.
I think that the Olympics should celebrate Nations gathering for peaceful sporting events and politics and sexual agendas should have no place in them. This is ALL about legitimizing homosexual behavior and pedophilia and we all know that this what the gay mafia wants.
It was just a little over four years ago. I had just read his book and really liked it. So I thought I’d give him a listen on my morning commute. The banter drove me crazy. I gave him a week and I was outa there. I had a 20 minute driving commute and one day I realized I had completed my commute without him and his sidekick saying anything other then silly pop-FM banter.
some freepers are looking for the most perfect people to lead them, and yet we are all human, too human....
Beck serves a purpose...so does Christie...so does Rush...and Rudy...and Scott Walker...and Marco...and Ted.....but not one of these people is perfect, 100% thru and thru totally socially and fiscally conservative....
He ignores the man behind the curtain. The fed, privately owned, who also owns the companies he works for. He never “speaks truth to power” when it comes to them. May as well be Warren Buffets loofah boy.
~~~How much did Soros pay him?~~~
You are absolutely correct... JESUS was the only perfect man... SON of man and SON of GOD. I am not looking for perfection in Beck or anyone else. I am not looking for anything close to perfection. I have found that in CHRIST and the FATHER. What I am not looking for amongst men is crazy.
try your use of the word ‘supposedly’
Soon to be visiting his bank account in tax-free Malta, I wonder.
They all seem to eventually cave.
“Somebody has made him an offer he feels he cannot refuse.”
Right on. Glenn is doing the obligatory grovel to be on FOX.
Glenn seems to be going over to the Dark Side. That’s too bad.
