Glenn Beck accepted a First Amendment award from Talkers magazine last night – but the former Fox News host gave a speech that was more conciliatory than celebratory.
Without mentioning any specific events, the controversial pundit said:
“For any role that I have played in dividing, I wish I can take them back. don’t wish I could take back the truth that was spoken but perhaps… many times I could have said it differently.”
Beck’s run ended on Fox in 2011 largely due to advertisers boycotting his program after he said President Barack Obama had “a deep-seated hatred for whiteMore >
Ding! Ding! Will Glenn Beck soon appear in the WWE squared circle?
On his TheBlaze TV show Thursday, the conservative commentator slammed the wrestling organization due to its portrayal of Zeb Colter, an overly patriotic grappler who Beck feels is “demonizing” the Tea Party.
“You’re making a villain out of what?” Beck asked, adding that the company is alienating its fans: “Probably 80% of your audience who’s tired as it is of being miscast? They’re tired of this.”
Beck went on to wonder: Has Vince McMahon been influenced by liberal billionaire George Soros?

Ivanka Trump is blasting a report that claimed she and her siblings staged an intervention, asking father Donald Trump to back off his public bashing of President Obama.
The Trump heiress took to Twitter today to call out the N.Y. Daily News:
“I totally respect @realDonaldTrump’s opinions & right to articulate them, which is what I would’ve told @nydailynews if they’d call me to fact check their false story,” she wrote.
The Trump patriarch has taken a ton of heat – and kept late night talk show hosts in business – thanks to his repeated diatribes throughout the 2012 electionMore >
U.S. Sen. Marco Rubio, a rising Republican political star, is not being vetted by Mitt Romney for the Vice Presidential nomination, according to reports.
It was widely assumed that even if he didn’t get the nod, Rubio, 41, would at least be on Romney’s short list of possible V.P. picks for obvious reasons.
Young, charismatic and wildly popular with conservatives, he could also help Republicans win a key state (Florida) and make inroads with Hispanics.
Apparently Romney isn’t looking at Rubio for the post, however.

Go Lizard. It’s your birthday. We gonna …
Yeah. This viral video pretty much speaks for itself. Scintillating footage of a small lizard crossing the road is overdubbed with 50 Cent’s seminal hip hop smash hit “In Da Club,” creating the impression that the reptile is showing off some sick dance moves.
As always, very nicely done Internet.

Kelly Clarkson singing Coldplay? Like Usher singing Foster the People, it’s a cover we can’t say we saw coming, but one you’ll find is memorably good.
The American Idol winner and Duets star paid a visit to the BBC Radio 1 Live Lounge – the same venue as Usher’s aforementioned cover – last week.
On it, she took on the Coldplay and Rihanna hit “Princess of China” in stripped down, acoustic rendition featuring just guitar, mandolin and vocals.
Watch below as she nails both Rihanna‘s part and Chris Martin’s:

It didn’t exactly receive the same attention as another Royal wedding, but Prince Albert and Charlene Wittstock got hitched today in a small civil ceremony.
The event took place inside the palace in Monaco.
