Skip to comments.Glenn Beck Goes Off: ‘I Was Diane Sawyer’s Little Bitch,’ ‘She Became A Bigot’
Posted on 08/01/2013 9:30:56 AM PDT by Mozilla
On his radio show this morning, Glenn Beck not-so-fondly recalls the time he was employed by ABC News and became Diane Sawyers little bitch before their working relationship soured and she became the biggest bigot Ive ever seen.
According to Beck, during his brief stint as an ABC contributor, Sawyer was fond of him and would call him up frequently to discuss what sorts of ideas she had for improving television. I was Diane Sawyers little bitch, he told his co-hosts today, recalling how shed call and e-mail him so frequently his wife became concerned.
However, he alleged, Sawyer stopped dealing with Beck after the Council on AmericanIslamic Relations went down to ABC and demanded that the network cease giving him a platform or they will boycott ABC, its parent company Disney, and the Disney parks.
All of the sudden, I cant get Diane on the phone, he recalled. Eight months later, I have lunch with her, and she becomes the biggest bigot Ive ever seen in my life.
As Beck continued to posit his theories on why the friendship went south, co-host Stu Burguiere mocked Beck for speaking so frankly, telling him: Dont even think about what youre saying. Just go with it.
Watch at the link:
There is no working link.
Is THIS the breaking news that was going to change America forever?
Or is this the story that is going to crush the foundations of both political parties?
Sorry, I am trying to keep up with Glenn Beck’s earth shaking announcements....
The show and beck are a train wreck in slow motion. unlistenable
Well, whether it’s true or not, making a public attack like this on a former friend is, in fact, the sort of thing you’d expect from a “little bitch.”
Hey, no one can MAKE you be their little bitch. You have to do it to yourself.
Slinging “stuff” only works when you are throwing it back and KNOW where it came from.
I too have been waiting with great anticipation for at least one of them to materialize unless they have and I just slept through them.............zzzzzzzzzzz
Love, exciting and new.
Come aboard. We’re expecting you!
Mebbe I’m thinking about ‘Ghost Ship.’
Glen Beck is obviously drinking again. Or he’s had some sort of psychotic break.
The year was 1968. I was working for WLKY-TV, the ABC affiliate (now CBS) in Louisville, KY.
Diane Sawyer, from a very rich and famous family in Louisville, was the TV “Weather Girl.”
She would come to work wearing flip-flops and a sundress and not much else.
She’d pull the weather info from the AP teleprinter and use that to do the weather forecast.
She did not appear to be even a little brighter than most. Good looks, and she was a looker, for sure, and a rich, famous family is what she had going for her.
.......going to make popcorn.......
He certainly has been peppy lately.
His show is fun.
The thing Beck was really whining about was CAIR, and not Diane Sawyer...
Diane Sawyer is a cut-throat when intervierwing someone. She can smile while she sticks the knife in and twists it.
I don’t get the appeal of this man Beck, nor the squealing Malkin or Levin. There is something annoying about them. They all seem very arrogant (though often right on the issues).
Rush is arrogant, too, but he’s funny and tongue-in-cheek about it. Maybe it’s their humorless approach that grates on me.
Yeah, I remember when he just had the radio show. Much better than. And I didn’t have to hear three people talk over and laugh every 4 seconds.
*talk over each other*
I’m with you, Cinnamontea. I do love Rush and would be absolutely devastated if he were to end his show. I also love to listen to Levin and Malkin as often as possible. I LOVE their passion. I almost always learn something new or am reminded of something I once knew but hadn’t considered in a long time.
And you’re right about this being some serious stuff we’re dealing with. I am frequently puzzled by the lack of outrage by many on the right.
I’m looking forward to Levin’s new book. There’s just so much whining that can be done about where we are. I am ready for a plan of correction, and his plan sounds like one for the ages.
On a possibly related note, I had to give up on Rush today as he was telling the story of his early career for the umpteenth time, and the point seemed to be that he doesn’t bother to look back nostalgically on his early career.
Talk radio hosts, ego is thy name. It’s all part of the territory.
All these hosts claim their show is changing world events. According to BOR things happen in the world, or not, based on what he will allow.
Today is the twenty-five anniversary of the day he started his show. Let him reminisce.
Beck is overly dramatic. Right on the basics, but always trying to pretend like he has the course of history in his hands.
I’ve never heard Manikin’s show.
Rush basically does the same show every day. I could hear one from 1993, 1998, 2002, 2008, and 2013 and outside of names, I wouldn’t know the difference. But I do miss it sometimes.
Levin is the only one I really do listen to because he is actually serious about wanting to do something. Not just marveling at how awful the other side is. I just cant stand the callers on there.
It's like he has his very own set of trolls,
who show up whenever anything is posted about him.
As for what he said about Diane Sawyer,
it seems like he was talking more about CAIR,
and how they were able to prevent him from doing anything at ABC,
then he was about her.
The clip at Mediaite cuts off before he finishes what he is saying.
No big surprise that they would try to take his words out of context,
in order to stir up a controversy.
I love Glenn Beck.
The man is a visionary, creative genius.
I wish him success in every one of his ventures.
He is right on with his analysis that conservatism needs to be front and center in our culture.
That's why he has movie studios, has a museum, exc...He has big ideas-plans.
For the sake of our country,
I hope and pray that he and his team can make them happen.
For anyone reading the troll comments-Don't listen to them.
Go to Glenn Beck's site-www.glennbeck.com and see for yourself what he's about.
By all means-let's everyone stop listening to Rush, Beck, exc...that'll help us further our cause (....eyes-rolling sarcasm).
Agreed about yuk-yuk. I personally find Rush to be funny AND deadly clear. He is not overly harsh, strident or weird. That those others are turns me off, and I agree with their message!
Good points. Thanks.
With all due respect, this post of yours is a perfect example of why some Glenn Beck fans come across as overwrought evangelists. You don’t just like him and listen to him; you’re emotionally invested in him. The fact that everyone else is’nt seems to drive you bonkers.
Of the talk radio hosts, my favorite is Mark Levin, but I don’t catch him all the time, and if someone else doesn’t like him, that’s his or her privilege. It doesn’t bother me. I’m certainly not going to go around hyperventilating that he’s the most wonderful person on earth and, here, you MUST listen to this segment of his! He’s a visionary! He’s going to change the world!
IMO, Beck is a weepy drama queen who’s made endless sonorous promises about secret information that’s going to take down the power structure of the government, determine the fate of our nation, rock the nation & change everything, etc., etc. (Those are verbatim, BTW). But nothing ever comes of them, and he doesn’t mention them again because he knows his audience (or “followers”, as he once correctly called you) will accept it and fall for it all over again next time.
BTW, Beck is on record as saying that sodomite marriage is about “freedom” and “the principle of it is right.” No person who supports queer marriage speaks for me. Your mileage may vary.
I am grateful for Rush, Hannity, Malkin, Levin, Beck.
Beck has the greater amount of self-doubt and consequent struggles, which make his presentation sort of wobble. Sometimes it stabilizes and is great; other times, there seems to be a lot of wobble.
Beck was some kind of pal of Senator Joe Lieberman, whom Beck mentioned a lot ... but now does not mention much.
Beck sort of straightened up, when his tolerance of so-called bi-partisan liberals, ran into his respect for our people in uniform who had been sent off to fight the murderous, treacherous muslim fanatics. Beck was, “Hey, wait a minute, these are our kids taking enormous risks, and they don’t deserve the liberals’ ire!”
It was a turning point.
Yet all along, is his *greater self-doubt,* which can get the best of him.
Levin I am particularly glad to hear, because he is driven by the need to get the record set straight and do some good fixing up of our foundations of liberty.
Basically, Levin is who I want to see in the ring with Chris Matthews.
Malkin I like, because she came forth with courage and she is still determined to stand up; much like Sarah Palin.
You can if you want but I’ve listened to Rush since I was in Jr. High (1991-ish), and there really isnt anything left for me to get out of it unless it is a really good commentary that usually gets picked up here.
Beck was someone I started listening to back in 2004, and was obsessed with on radio and TV. Learned a whole lot. Between the manic episodes and the doomsday is around the corner stuff, I really dont have the time for it anymore.
There is nothing wrong with them, but there is only so much time you can waste with people that are repeating themselves before you move on.
You can take the time to post on a public forum to try to discourage other people from listening to them. That'll help. There are just too many people getting the conservative message today (eye-rolling sarcasm).
Did you see the part where I said dont listen to him?
My computer seems to keep blotting that out for some reason, making it hard for me to find it.
And your point is__________________________________________(Feel free to fill in the blank.)
There have been several times that he has released information that should have been earth shattering, but, for whatever reason, wasn't.
The Saudi national with connections to the Boston bombings comes to mind.
Then there's Libya-4 people murdered and a massive cover up- no one seems to care.
If Beck is emotional, it's because we live in a time of total madness.
It probably gets to him from time to time.
At least he's doing something about moving American ideas back into our culture.
With all due respect, it really bugs me when people tear down the efforts of those who are trying to make a difference in the current cultural-ideological war.
People need to study the concept of "Allies" in war, and stop forming circular firing squads.
The more people exposed to conservative ideas, the better.
It doesn't matter if they get it from Rush, Glenn, Levine, or anyone else. Different people have different tastes. As long as they get the information.
Whenever I see these negative "Can't stand him", "He's__________", posts, about any conservative media person, I suspect that the poster is on the Soros payroll.
Oh, I almost forgot, so thanks for reminding me. Another standby of the diehard Beck fangirl is that anyone who doesn't share their love for Beck is a troll, DUer, paid Soros minion, etc.
Judging from Beck's stated approval of the idea of sodomite marriage, he's trying to make a cultural difference in the wrong direction.
"People need to study the concept of "Allies" in war, and stop forming circular firing squads."
Again, no one who sanctions queer marriage is my ally.
Nothing I said about "allies" got through to you.
Well with Glenn there are five different things.
The Blaze News site
The Blaze TV
The Blaze Radio Network
His nightly program
His radio program
So it a complicated thing.
Guy wants to create a network to take on Fox news and the rest.
But guy also started a radio network and a adjacent news site.
He does two programs and they are not the same.
All I can say, IF I had soros thugs on my a** for everything I try to get out to the public, I’d probably clam up when my life or family were in danger. Anyone who misses this simple and provable reality, just continues to sit here and type away, believing somebody or something will ‘happen’ and things will magically transform.
Our side is insane, on so many levels...certainly not restricted to the voices on TV or radio, or our pathetic politicians. And yet, by all means, lets squabble over Beck/Rush/Levin/Malkin/Coulter - cuz the left is REALLY engaged in seeing how we sort this all out! lol - simply ridiculous, imho.
For example-if you are Catholic and marry in the Church, it is between only you and the Church.
It is separate from the government.
If you get divorced
you also have to get an annulment from the Church.
I think there are some valid points to be made about the idea of leaving government entirely out of marriage.
Do you know when Beck was at ABC? What timeframe are we looking at here?
Both Beck and Palin are people who kissed up to the establishment, but seemed to have had a “come to Jesus moment”, and are talking about their experiences with the slime known as the establishment.
I have had similar revelations about the things I was taught about the liberal establishment.
I give them both credit. They each know at this point, both sides are going to mock them. They need to stay right with God and keep talking.
God’s way is to bring people up in the slime, and then separate a remnant, and take them to His side- so that people who have ears to hear, will listen and be saved.
Well our side is divided between candidates, talking heads and issues. Libertarians and the leftists exploitate it for us. Herding us is like herding cats.
There is a group that since Glenn Beck emerged in 2006, not 2009, but actually Glenn started his current radio show in 2002, has been invested in attacking everything and every move.
Yet, a majority tuned him out. But at the same time, people don’t have the time to follow these guys in conservative media 24/7.
So people have had every opinion under the sun against Glenn and others. Yet, he has a devoted following.
There is a rift because some people really like 70 to 80 percent of what Beck is saying. Maybe all of it.
Yet he has so many detractors on our side who will never embrace him. So it makes you wonder if his network can succeed.
