Was Elisabeth Hasselbeck FIRED From The View For Being "Too Right Wing"?
What the h-e-double-hockey-sticks is going on at ABC Daytime's once insurmountable chatfest The View? First Joy Behar announces her departure; now US Weekly is reporting Elisabeth Hasselbeck has been fired for being "too extreme and right wing". From the article:
"The viewers they polled all said she was too extreme and right wing," the insider tells Us. "People did not watch the show because of Elisabeth. So they told her yesterday her contract would not be renewed."
Okay, as much as it pains me to defend Hasselbeck (And trust me, it does.), isn't the point of The View to showcase women with different points of view? My beliefs certainly line up closer with Behar's or Whoopi Goldberg's, but I wouldn't say Hasselbeck is any more extreme right than they are extreme left. Oh well...
