Glenn Beck apologizes for smearing Obama's 11-year-old daughter

Blog ››› ››› MEDIA MATTERS STAFF

From a statement posted on Glenn Beck's website:

In discussing how President Obama uses children to shield himself from criticism, I broke my own rule about leaving kids out of political debates. The children of public figures should be left on the sidelines. It was a stupid mistake and I apologize--and as a dad I should have known better.
