Glenn Beck Says He Regrets Some Of His Fiery Talk
June 7, 2013 at 4:28 AM (PT)
Could we be seeing a kinder and gentler GLENN BECK? THE AP reports BECK, "regrets that some of his fiery opinions caused division in the country over the last several years."
Speaking at THE TALKERS CONVENTION in NEW YORK, BECK added, "He wasn't fully aware of the perilous times and people 'at each other's throats',"notes the report. "BECK said he was puzzled by activists who organize boycotts of people who say things they disagree with. BECK's popular show on FOX NEWS CHANNEL ended in 2011 after a successful advertiser boycott organized after he said President BARACK OBAMA had 'a deep-seated hatred for white people'."
"For any role that I have played in dividing, I wish I can take them back," BECK said. "I don't wish I could take back the truth that was spoken but perhaps -- not perhaps -- many times I could have said it differently."
BECK had more kind words, thanking CNN and FOX for airing his TV shows, and PREMIERE RADIO NETWORKS and CLEAR CHANNEL "for supporting free speech."
