Elizabeth Hasselbeck To Rosie O'Donnell: We'll Talk At 11
Post Chronicle ^ | Apr 16, 2007 | Tashi Singh

Posted on 04/18/2007 2:38:18 AM PDT by Anti-Bubba182

Elizabeth Hasselbeck of "The View" is co-hosting "Fox & Friends" This week. And today, when she goes to assume her co-hosting duties on "The View," Elizabeth Hasselbeck is going to have a few choice words for Rosie O'Donnell.

But we'll get to that later. If you recall, cutie Kiran Chetry was canned when the William Morris Agency tried to play hardball with the Fox News Channel. Chetry was axed in favor of Gretchen Carlson.

Fox has been trying to push Carlson (albeit unsuccessfully) ever since Kiran left. They've even tried moving a few other Fox babes into the role as they watched their ratings drop-off.

Don't feel too sorry for Chetry as second-place CNN gobbled up the former Fox beauty, and she's now going head-to-head vs. FOX as the new co-host of CNN's American Morning.

Fox has been making blunder after blunder regarding their once extremely popular morning show. First it was moving E.D. Hill to make room for Carlson and then it was Kiran Chetry.

However, FOX looks to have read the writing on the wall as Gretchen has mysteriously vanished. Allison Camerotta returned to the show last week after being out on maternity leave and after several obvious failed attempts to find a suitable replacement, FOX may have found their girl in Elizabeth Hasselbeck.

Now I don't claim to know anything about Elizabeth's contract but it would seem that she may be planning to jump ship. It's no secret that she's been unhappy in her role on "The View" and at times has been the other three liberal ladies' conservative punching bag......."

IT would be neat if Hasselbeck moves to Fox. It could help to make up for the blunder of moving ED Hill out for Carlson and the bad luck of losing Chetry.

FoxNews is important to consevatives as the one TV news network that is not openly hostile. The rest might as well be PBS outlets.

Hasselbeck would be just one of many “plain Janes” that Fox has tried to use lately. While she sounds assertive on FOX programs, she has been a wimp on “The View” and I certainly don’t think much of her.

She is better than Carlson, unless they bring back ED Hill which would be awkward as hell. With Imus gone this would be a time to make a move or Chetry, now at CNN, will advance at Fox’s expense.

I have to agree. While Elizabeth may be the conservative punching bag on “Rosie’s view from the far left”. she makes it easy for them. She just can’t seem to find her voice, and put together enough words to offer a sensible counter punch.

I don’t know if that would change any even if she did have more control over things.

Debbie Schlussel would be a good choice instead of Elizabeth.

Fox’s biggest blunder was to hire Harold Ford Jr.

To be honest, I've never been able to watch more than a minute or two of the view. As a conservative in NYC, I know how difficult it can be sometimes to counter punch when your surrounded, even when you are someone like me who thinks about things like this for a living.

With that said, while she may not be the sharpest with the verbal repartee, legs like those forgive a lot of missed opportunities.

Elisabeth is fine, she would do well at F&F. BTW Gretchen was on yesterday, she does just fine as well IMHO.

Yep, me too. Having said that, Fox and Friends also makes me sick. That show is BAAAAD. As for Hasselbeck, the few times I've seen her she seems to be quite inarticulate at getting her point across, getting flustered when push comes to shove and quite frankly, I'm embarrassed for her more times than not.

E.D. admitted to being a Democrat all of the time. She is one of the reasons’s that I stopped watching F@F.

FOX has made some REALLY bad mistakes in personnel.

Their BEST morning anchor was E.D. Hill. Hill was attractive and VERY bright. The others, like Hassekback are minor league players conversationally and mentally.

Hasselback lets that swine O’Donnel run the View and run rough shod over her.Hioll would cut the O’Donnel pig to pieces. Roise is a mental lightweight and a total ignoramus. Even I could a better job than Hasselback managing her.

Gretchen came back yesterday. They said she returned from vacation. I notice she is not on the first hour anymore. I really hope they replace her. She irritates me to no end. Allison would be a great replacement for Gretchen in my opinion.

From O'Donnel's comments section on her website:

"no new questions
taking a little break".

Must have been getting a lot of criticism. She can dish it out but can't take it. Typical Liberal.

I don’t particularly like Allyson either. Hill was light years ahead of them both in the brain and beauty departments.

I don’t have a dog in this fight because I simply cannot watch ANY of those “Infotainment” or gabby, chatty morning shows.

That being said, I did hear Hasselback on Glenn Beck, one day last week. Her habit of ending every statement with an interrogatory tone simply drives me up the wall. This is a common trait of many who have a great deal of difficulty expressing cogent thought, and is becoming common among young ‘uns everywhere. Her speech is also peppered with a lot of “you knows”. If I were a F&F viewer, I’d switch to driving bamboo skewers under my fingernails rather than watch her.

Personally I like Gretchen! Can’t stand Hasselbeck. She has the personality of a rock. As for Kiran Chetry! Who cares? I thought she was anorexic.
I still watch Fox and Friends! I will NEVER watch CNN!

ED was great. Carlson has no chemistry. Chetry was better than Carlson. Ailes must have a thing for younger blonds.

Hasselback is probably on a short leash at the View. Nothing happens at the View that Barbara Walters does not allow.

I thought they moved E. D. Hill because she was tired of coming in so early. Also, I thought they needed her at the new hour to up ratings at that time lot.

I don’t buy that. ED had been doing the early show pregnant which would be a bigger strain. I think they thought they could bump their ratings more with the younger women. MSNBC
was gaining in that slot before Imus imploded.

I did like E.D. Never understood why they took her off to move her to another time slot. They are paying the price in the ratings department—too bad. But anybody will be better than Gretchen!

One man’s opinion - mine.

Gretchen is one scary woman.

Those eyebrows.

She always looks mad to me.

Can’t imagine tangling with her - very scary looking woman.

Hasselbeck is a possibility. With Imus down it may not be necessary.

I watched (or listened from another room) for about 30 minutes and then flew to the computer to send an email to Fox comments—NO to Elizabeth! Her voice and high-school manner of speaking made me turn off the TV. Too bad, because I love Steve and Brian. Bring back E.D.

I can not stand Gretchen.

I almost threw a beer through my HDTV when she compared John Kerry to George Bush, saying, “John Kerry was in the military, while George Bush was not.”

I’m glad Chetry’s gone. I always felt that she thought it was all about HER. I’ll take Alysen over Gretchen but please don’t hire Elizabeth. She’s very sweet but sounds like a Valley Girl.

From what I read there was a problem between ED and the two guys. It seemed to me that they were carrying the load as she had tons of time off (not just for babies) and when she returned it was kind of catch-up for her. Maybe the chemistry among the three was off. I wanted to like Gretchen but I think she is kind of cold. All I realy know is that I watched F&F every morning for years and for the last 9 or so months I rarely tune in.

I guess Fox needs a handful of liberals to appear “fair and balanced.”

The Valley Girl Effect. BTW, that Valley Girl accent has spread from the San Fernando Valley area of Los Angeles to the rest of the country. Now MILLIONS of women sound like Valley Girls.

Can blame any conservative too much for getting beat up on the lib View. I mean, it’s hard to make a point when you have three or four libs tag teaming you so that you can’t express a complete thought. And it’s a no win with Rosiehead. When you try to debate her it immediately deteriorates into a shouting match — if you want to be heard at all. And no one will hear you if they think you are losing it to a pin head like Rosiefatface.

Janice Dean is one terrific employee of Fox News. She is very versatile with doing weather, news and playing host. Fox is doing a great disservice by not utilizing Janice in the “middle” chair. Fox needs to have a male personality that Mike Garret brought to the show. With all due respect to both male “Kellys”; they are boring and not very entertaining...just my opinion....

I,too, noticed that every “ statement “ she made on Glenn's show ended as a question. This shows a lack of real thought to me. I cannot stand someone who is always looking for acceptance when ever they speak. Things are in fact black and white in most areas. I don’t need some wishy washy person giving me her “opinion “.

I don’t care if E.D is a democrat or not. At least she’s not an unreasonable rabid one. More like the original JFK democrat. She was perfect with Steve and Brian. Gretchen doesn’t have “it”. Kiran had it and would have been a decent replacement, but I can’t think of anyone else that could do it. Allyson gets on my nerves. Maybe Lauren Greene?
