The ladies of The View have grilled politicians on their couch, argued the latest hot topics at their table and now they want to host a Republican presidential debate. According to The Huffington Post, “A spokesman for "The View" confirmed that requests have been sent to Republican campaigns but declined to speak further about any interest so far.”
Just how would a Republican debate on The View work? Would Barbara Walters be the moderator? Would Whoopi Goldberg, Joy Behar, Elisabeth Hasselbeck and Sherri Shepherd participate? If they did, candidates would surely prepare themselves for hostile questioning from Goldberg and Behar. Hasselbeck, The View’s conservative voice on the panel, would probably feel at home at such a debate, but who would have guessed the one-time Survivor competitor might one day be involved in a Republican presidential debate? Do you believe Republican candidates will agree to debate on The View?

The interview, which will be his first network interview since the jury returned with ia not guilty verdict will cover “his courtroom strategy, his client’s demeanor, the reasons he thinks she was found not guilty, how he was ceaselessly second-guessed by trial watchers and the media during the six weeks of testimony, and his new found fame.”
Outrage erupted on social media sites, such as Facebook and Twitter, after a jury acquitted Anthony of murder, manslaughter and child endangerment on July 5. Portions of Walter’s interview will air on World News, Primetime Nightline and Nightline on July 6 and on Good Morning America and The View on July 7.
