Whoopi Goldberg unloaded on guest Glenn Beck on The View today over an alleged fabrication involving Amtrak and reserved seats, the Orlando Sentinel reports. “You were a lying sack of dog mess,” Goldberg told the Fox News personality. Barbara Walters said she and co-host Goldberg did not have reserved seats, and scolded Beck for saying they did. “You are an investigative reporter,” she said. “No, I’m not,” Beck replied.

“You’re a reporter,” Walters continued. No, “I am a commentator,” Beck said. “I commentate on life.” So, “you never check any facts you’re giving out to the public?” Walters rejoined. “Of course I do,” Beck responded. Walters then mentioned Beck’s on-air crying, to his amazement. “I’m on the quintessential chick show and you’re making fun of me for crying,” he protested. (Read more Whoopi Goldberg stories.)
