Skip to comments.Elizabeth Hasselbeck To Rosie O'Donnell: We'll Talk At 11
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......."

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.
Hill is an empty headed liberal bimbo!
Hiring Weasley Clark was pretty bad as well.
With that said, while she may not be the sharpest with the verbal repartee, legs like those forgive a lot of missed opportunities.
She's not liberal!
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.

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.
I had forgotten about Clark. He is just plain disgusting.
"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.
Naw. Whales are too cute. And the weigh more. Also, they have more brains than Rosie.
So what morning news show do all of you watch? Fox and Friends seems to be the lesser of all evils.
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!
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.
He makes it silly and IMO has ruined it.
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!
What about Geraldo?
One man’s opinion - mine.
Gretchen is one scary woman.
She always looks mad to me.
Can’t imagine tangling with her - very scary looking woman.
Democrat or not, she was just plain annoying.
I wonder if Hasselback’s extended interview on Hannity & Colmes last week was a sort of “audition.”
I don’t know if there really is going to be a change or not.
Hasselbeck is a possibility. With Imus down it may not be necessary.
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.
UGH!!!! PUKE PUKE. Besides his mustache looks like it just crawled there from a you know what. All we need is an anti-american liberal idiot on morning T.V.
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....
Janice Dean is cool!
What? I just saw her on there yesterday or this morning.
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?
Fox is UNWATCHABLE because of ALL the LIBERALS they have on!!!
Kiran was the one if they wanted to replace ED. Whoever brought in Carlson screwed up.
