During an interview with Fox News anchor Megyn Kelly on Tuesday, former Fox host Glenn Beck admitted that there are some things about his time at the channel that he regrets.

“I remember it as an awful lot of fun and that I made an awful lot of mistakes,” Beck told Kelly. “I think I played a role, unfortunately, in helping tear the country apart.”

Beck had a show on Fox News from 2009 to 2011.

“I wish I could go back and be more uniting in my language,” Beck said. “I didn’t realize how really fragile the people were. I thought we were kind of a little more in it together. And now I look back and I realize if we could have talked about the uniting principles a little bit more, instead of just the problems, I think I would look back on it a little more fondly.”

The outspoken TV personality doesn’t have an issue with the network itself, just his performance. “That’s only my role,” he said.

While he was with Fox, Beck famously said that President Obama “has exposed himself as a guy -- over and over and over again -- who has a deep-seated hatred for white people, or the white culture, I don’t know what it is.”
