Type “Glenn Beck apologizes” into a Google search and you’re going to get more than a few hits. Based on an email I received this morning, this one, via MediaBistro’s TV Newser, is what I was looking for:

On the radio this morning, Glenn Beck lead his show with an apology for comments he made Tuesday about rabbis of Reform Judaism. “It’s almost like Islam … radicalized Islam in a way,” said Beck. “Radicalized Islam is less about religion than it is about politics. When you look at the Reform Judaism, it is more about politics.”

Beck called it one of the “worst analogies of all time.”

“I was wrong on this … and I apologize for it,” said Beck. “In this case I did not do enough homework.”

“Somebody has called me ignorant for what I said on Tuesday, and I think that’s a pretty good description of what I said.”

For more on what Beck originally said, read this post.
