Glenn Beck Wishes He Had Done More ‘Uniting’ At Fox News (VIDEO)

Conservative pundit Glenn Beck seems to regret his on-air antics during his tenure at Fox News Channel.

Fox News host Megyn Kelly asked Beck to reflect on his time at the network on Tuesday’s “The Kelly File.” Beck left in 2011 to start his digital network, The Blaze, saying at the time that he felt like “if you do not leave now, you won’t leave with your soul intact.”

“I wish I could go back and be more uniting in my language,” he told Kelly. “I think I played a role, unfortunately, in helping tear the country apart and it’s not who we are.”

“I didn’t realize how really fragile the people were, I kind of thought we were a little more in it together,” Beck continued. “Now I look back and I realize if we could’ve talked about the uniting principles a little more instead of just the problems, I think I would look back on it a little more fondly.”
