Glenn Beck says he's sorry, but is it all just part of a bigger plan?
The former Fox News host host apologized Thursday for “dividing” the country with his conservative and controversial views in recent years.
Beck delivered the mea culpa while accepting a First Amendment award from Talkers magazine, a talk radio trade publication.
The 49-year-old agitator won the award for his defense of free speech, but admitted his own tirades have pitted Americans against each other.
“For any role that I have played in dividing, I wish I can take them back,” he 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.”
At least one Beck adversary attributed the apology to self-interest. Angelo Carusone, of the liberal advocacy group Media Matters, said Beck is merely trying to rehab his image so cable and satellite operators agree to broadcast his news and entertainment network, The Blaze.
