“I am inclined to believe him”. (Greta Van Susteren)
Greta is choking on those words that she said following her past interview she did with Joran Van der Sloot in 2006. She couldn’t back peddle fast enough from those comments after the Peter De Vries tapes came out this past weekend.
After all this time Greta Van Susteren has to finally admit she was wrong about Joran Van der Sloot. So Greta, “are you not inclined to believe him”? Greta admits that she made a poor evaluation. Well, its about time. Read the full transcript HERE.
TACOPINA: Fair enough. Fair enough. But I think — look, for a living, I sort of make an evaluation of people and…
VAN SUSTEREN: So do I, and I made a poor one. I made a poor one.
On tonights show when Beth Holloway and Jug Twitty are on, Greta Van Susteren … you owe them both an apology.
VAN SUSTEREN: Well, and I — I actually — I mean, I think that’s sort of — I mean, I think it’s significant they didn’t detain him. But you know, when I met Joran, he seemed like — you know, he seemed like a young kid and he was very earnest. And against his parents’ advice, he — you know, he sat down and talked to us against his lawyer’s advice.
And you listen to him in this tape, he’s just a cocky, nasty kid. And it’s that same sort of description that Beth Holloway gave to me on that first night when they first met him, when they rushed to that island to try and find out what happened to her daughter, is that he’s a nasty, cocky kid. And it’s almost like, OK, when the cameras turn on and he knows about it, he’s this, you know, good student, loves his parents. I mean, and I know that from talking to his mother and father, they love him, but I know that he had some, like — there were some issues about whether he was an angry kid and (INAUDIBLE) school. You know, like, it’s almost like there are two very different people.
TACOPINA: You know, I obviously knew him when the cameras were off and spoke to him, although in the setting of this case.
VAN SUSTEREN: I don’t know if you did know him when he’s off. Why would he not be nice to you?
TACOPINA: I said when the cameras are off. I mean…
VAN SUSTEREN: No, no, no. But I mean, he had every — he had every motive to impress you, too, as he did us.
