Elisabeth Hasselbeck is being fired from ABCs The View because market researchers found that her conservative views were out of touch with the shows audience, according to a report in Us Weekly.
The magazine, citing unnamed sources, reported Friday that Hasselbeck will be leaving the show along with Joy Behar, an outspoken far-left liberal who quit the show by choice.
The viewers they polled all said she was too extreme and right-wing, a show insider whose name was not reported told UsMagazine.com about Hasselbeck Friday. People did not watch the show because of Elisabeth. So they told her yesterday her contract would not be renewed.
TV Newser later reported similar developments. The site referenced two separate sources that confirmed the conservative co-host was leaving The View. A spokesman for the ABC show told TV Newser that Hasselbeck has a long-term contract.
If Hasselbecks conservatism is a problem with audiences, it would appear to be a relatively new one; she has been on the show for nearly ten years with no apparent fuss, the Huffington Post notes.

Hope she takes up tweeting....
Well, Duh. I’m surprised she lasted this long. Who’s watching that crap, anyway? Oh, that’s right - unemployed Baby Mamas. *SNORT*
Wow.... They must think Bill Kristol is Augusto Pinochet.
Having never seen the show I can’t say if this gal’s opinion were “extreme” or not.
But something tells me that they are “extreme” only in the minds of left leaning libeerals.
Too much balance going on out there! This is a show for commie freeloaders and welfare queens only!!! Harumpf! Harumpf!
Left wingers will not condone those who disagree with them.
They do not wish their bias threatened.
I suppose they will replace Hasselbeck with a Juan Williams type female Conservative.
This actually speaks volumes about Conservative women being too busy as wives and mothers to watch a show like The View.
My guess is that Hasselback has been too competent at defending her POV.
That’s amusing because, as much as I think Hasselbeck is a reliable Republican, too few of her viewpoints are as “right-wing” as mine ;-)
She is a sweetheart. Surprised those turds kept her as long as they did.
No more phone calls.....we have a winner.
Good because she deserves it for being the conservative useful idiot to those total scumbags on that show. I wouldn’t ever hire her after selling out to the worst of the worst.
So...who advertises with The View? Vote with your dollar.
Libs love an echo chamber.
I have never watched the show except for a few minutes while waiting in a Dr’s. office. I have seen some of them quoted.
Basically they are as weird and crazy as one can be and still be able to walk around. They are an indication as to just how Satanic this country has become. I started to say Marxist and that would be right but Satanic seems to fit even better.
I guess it has never occurred to them how many people don’t watch because of the uber liberals that dominate the show. I’ll bet it’s alot more than the ones that don’t watch because of Elizabeth. Don’t she how she stood it that long anyway.
