Glenn Beck On His Time At Fox News: I Said Some ‘Stupid Things’ (VIDEO)

August 3, 2014 2:24 p.m.

Glenn Beck lamented his role in widening the gap between Democrats and Republicans while he was at Fox News during an interview that aired Sunday on CNN’s “Reliable Sources.”

“Unintentionally I feel I’ve added — we all have, all of us — have added to the situation that we’re in right now,” he told CNN’s Brian Stelter. “We are much more fragile than I thought.”

“When you live your life for five hours a day on live television or radio, you’re going to say stupid things,” he continued.

Stelter asked if one of the “stupid things” was calling President Obama racist.

“Of course it was,” Beck responded.

Beck described to Stelter his decision to leave Fox News and start his own channel, The Blaze.

“If you don’t leave now, you’ll lose your soul,” Beck said he told himself right before he announced his decision to leave Fox.
