    What's the difference between: I would hate to be said that. VS I would hate to be

    What's the difference between:

    I would hate to be said that.

    VS

    I would hate to be told that.

    Are both okay?

    The first is not correct.

    Perhaps you're missing the first /t/ in "I would hate it to be said that...", but in that case the 'that' is a subordinating conjunction, rather than a pronoun (as it is in your second sentence).
