ABC’s ‘The View’ Reportedly Firing Show’s Lone Conservative Over ‘Extreme’, ‘Right-Wing’ Views
The Blaze ^ | 3/8/13 | Jason Howerton

Posted on 03/08/2013 4:06:32 PM PST by Nachum

Elisabeth Hasselbeck is being fired from ABC’s “The View” because market researchers found that her conservative views were out of touch with the show’s 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 Hasselbeck’s 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.

Well, Duh. I’m surprised she lasted this long. Who’s watching that crap, anyway? Oh, that’s right - unemployed Baby Mamas. *SNORT*

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.

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 ;-)

Isn't this the exact argument that liberals used to justify "net neutrality"? People only wanting to see things they agree with and not being exposed to new ideas? Guess it's time for "network neutrality".

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.

The only reason she lasted this long is because she always claimed that people should take “Pride in sodomy” especially little boys, like Jerry Brown is forcing into public schools in Kindergarten to erase Christian Ethics, so we adopt the worldview of pagan/occultists where the State can eliminate whomever. It is why that vile vice is promoted with “Just” laws in our military...../sarc.

She was no conservative. She was part of the Hegelian Dialectics to move us WAY over to the far left. She is a useful idiot.

I always felt like they paid her too much to go anywhere else. Otherwise, she should have left long ago.

I dont believe that BS because if that is true, how come Joy Behar is leaving, is she also too “Right wing?” Also, Elizabeth Hasslebeck isnt exactly a Conservative..she is a huge fan of Chris Christie and she has gushed over Obama when he appeared on their show numerous times

I would ONLY watch the show because of Hasselbek. Goldberg, Behar, and Walters were so extreme left-wing nutjobs that it was gagging-time.

how come Joy Behar is leaving,

According to news reports she is leaving voluntarily when her contract is up.
Supposedly she was offered a new contract but said she wants to do an "interview show" of her own.

It has also been reported that she and CNN have been negotiating for her to do a show there.

People did not watch the show because of Elisabeth.

I didn't watch the show because of everybody but Elisabeth. I can't stomach Bayhar (sp), even a clip of her. What a vile toad.

Yeah I heard the witch might be taking the place of Piers Morgan cause his show is an epic fail..but when Behar was on CNN no one watched why would they bother with her again..maybe The View can replace her with Van Jones or Michael Moore after all they both share the views of the idiots who watch that garbage

I really enjoy The Walking Dead. Outside of that I mostly watch I.D. channel.

I used to watch Discovery, but nothing seems to come on there anymore.

I don’t really care about gold or moonshine or fast cars so...

I also watch Netflix as well.

Chris I forgot about walking dead but yes for the most part we watch Netflix and that is because we can choose what we want and what is in the movie, or program plus they have some decent history or interesting programs on.

Same here about discovery, they used to be good but gold, moonshine etc is not really my interest thing

Where is her father on this too?

My oldest speaks up about what marriage is and what parents are and he is 15 and yes I raised all my kids as conservatives, so John you failed and was not there as a parent
