The transcript of the heated exchange/discussion and the video are below.
GLENN BECK: Mischaracterization, mischaracterization of you, Ms. Walters. I’m sorry for the bad…
Walters said that Beck approached them and that she was very nice and polite to him. Beck agreed.
JOY BEHAR: Why did you lie about that?
BECK: Why did I lie about that?
BEHAR: Yeah, why did you say she came over?
BECK: I don’t know. I came over.
BEHAR: So you just had a brain fart, or what?
BECK: Yeah, I guess so. Yeah.
WHOOPI GOLDBERG: So Steve Kroft, I wanted to make sure before I brought this up to you. We didn’t reserve our seats. I don’t know… Wait, let me just…[Crosstalk]
BECK: You’re accusing me of lying. Let me tell you what…
GOLDBERG: You did lie! What do you mean I’m accusing you?
BECK: I’m sorry.
GOLDBERG: You sat there and you were a lying sack of dog mess. Come on, Glenn. You lied.
BECK: I’m sorry that I…
GOLDBERG: You know what, Glenn? Here’s the thing that was true: I was not particularly happy to see you because I watch your show…
BECK: You don’t like me.
GOLDBERG: No, I don’t like your views. I don’t know you, OK? I don’t like your views, OK? There’s a lot of people that I don’t like whose views that I don’t agree with.
GOLDBERG: That’s OK. But for you to make something up like that, and drag… Wait a minute… and drag us in, and put it as though we…
BECK: I was told by the Amtrak… and I have other people that were with me.
GOLDBERG: That’s not what you said.
BECK: I was told by the Amtrak people that those were going to be reserved, and I would be…
GOLDBERG: You dragged us into it, and it was a lie.
BECK: Excuse me. I would be so excited when I find out who’s sitting there.
GOLDBERG: It was a lie.
BARBARA WALTERS: Why didn’t you bother, as a reporter, who goes on to check? As it happened, Whoopi and I had a hard time finding seats. We finally did at the end of the car. Steve Kroft…
BECK: So you’re saying…
WALTERS: Wait. And you saw him come in. There were no seats for Steve. He and his wife were separated. You are an investigative reporter.
BECK: NO, I’m not.
WALTERS: You’re a reporter.
BECK: No, I am not.
WALTERS: So you check no facts at all, right?
BECK: No, ma’am. I am commentator. I am a commentator. I commentate on life.
WALTERS: As a commentator, do you ever check your facts?
GOLDBERG: But you were wrong here. And here’s why it pissed me off, here’s why it pissed me off more than anything: Because regardless of that, when I got off that train, and your big man was standing there, I had a good moment with you. And I thought, ‘OK, this is all right.’ When I saw this (referring to the clip) and what went on to it, I thought, ‘Why would you drag me into it?’ But number one, why would you say that she called you over with that voice? ‘Come over here.’ And then say, I mean, it’s there.
BECK: Do you, do you not think, that I mean, I mean… did you not think that I knew this was coming? Did you not think I knew this was coming? I have no problem defending… I have no problem…
GOLDBERG: I don’t care if you knew what it was. Why did you lie, Glenn? Why did you try to make some stuff up about Barbara and I? That’s what I’m trying to find out.
BECK: I’m sorry that I, to use Nancy Pelosi’s words, ‘misspoke’ about being, you calling me over. You did not call me over. I went over….
WALTERS: Now, let me just ask you something else, because we did invite you on because you are a very hot talent. And you say you are a commentator, and we all have different points… Bill O’Reilly’s on with us. We don’t agree. We do agree. We love him, etc. But when you say you’re a commentator, you never check any facts that you are giving out to the public?
BECK: Ma’am, I will tell you. I will show the people that were with me. I was traveling with three other people.
WALTERS: No, I’m talking about in general. I’m talking about moving along.
BECK: Of course I do.
That’s all we have for now on Glenn Beck On The View.
