Glenn Beck Goes Off: ‘I Was Diane Sawyer’s Little Bitch,’ ‘She Became A Bigot’

On his radio show this morning, Glenn Beck not-so-fondly recalls the time he was employed by ABC News and became Diane Sawyer‘s “little bitch” before their working relationship soured and “she became the biggest bigot I’ve 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 Sawyer’s little bitch,” he told his co-hosts today, recalling how she’d call and e-mail him so frequently his wife became concerned.

However, he alleged, Sawyer stopped dealing with Beck after the Council on American–Islamic 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 can’t get Diane on the phone,” he recalled. “Eight months later, I have lunch with her, and she becomes the biggest bigot I’ve 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: “Don’t even think about what you’re saying. Just go with it.”
