Exclusive interview: Glenn Beck like you've never heard him before

Everybody's got an opinion about conservative commentator Glenn Beck. Maybe yours will be influenced, for better or ill, by Brian Stelter's conversation with him. Parts of it were televised on CNN's "Reliable Sources" on Sunday. Here's the first part:

Beck hosts daily radio and television shows. But he also oversees his own media company, Mercury Radio Arts, including a Web site and television channel called The Blaze. That's why Forbes magazine estimates that Beck and his company earn $90 million a year - making him not just a polarizing public speaker, but the face of a very big business.

Lately he's been espousing his distaste for politics - "I hate it more than I ever have," he said - and his desire to "affect culture."

Stelter asked if he had veered away from politics in part because it's bad for business, but Beck said no: it is "better for business if I talk about it."

"You would not believe the complaints that I get" about broadening out beyond politics, he added.

Beck talked at length about wanting Americans to unite around common principles and values.

"I think we're a country in civil war," he said. "I just think we're in a cold civil war. Shooting hasn't started, but somebody stupid is going to do something stupid and it will escalate - unless we talk to each other."

Here's the second part of the interview from Sunday's "Reliable Sources:"

Check out more of what Beck has to say on next weekend's "Reliable Sources," Sunday at 11 a.m. Eastern time.
