    Pop singer Barry Manilow, a major Democratic fundraiser, said on Monday he has scrapped plans to appear on the television talk show "The View," because he did not want to be interviewed by its conservative co-host. Manilow was scheduled to appear on the ABC morning show Tuesday, the same day his new album, "The Greatest Songs of the Seventies" hits stores. But those plans fell through because of his issues with Elisabeth Hasselbeck, an abortion opponent and supporter of the Iraq war. "I had made a request that I be interviewed by (co-hosts) Joy (Behar), Barbara (Walters) or Whoopi (Goldberg),...

    He writes the songs that make people run. Some Rite Aid stores in California have taken to blasting Barry Manilow tunes as part of a plan to make loiterers scramble. Employees told the Wall Street Journal that the drugstore chain has been testing the tactic of playing songs by the 75-year-old crooner outside their stores — over and over, loudly — to deter panhandlers and vagrants. But the plan has also left neighbors mystified. “I thought some older man had died and left a Barry’s Most Depressing Hits CD on repeat,” said Lisa Masters, a professional drummer in Long Beach...

    Which was the bigger insult to Hillary: that she might have committed hanky-panky with the handling of her email, or that she's a huge Barry Manilow fan? On today's With All Due Respect, Mark Halperin mocked Hillary's decision to delete thousands of supposedly personal emails: "was she running out of server space because she was, like, downloading every Barry Manilow song?" John Heilemann was equally unimpressed, quoting someone who tweeted: "Nixon didn't burn the tapes but Hillary destroyed the emails." Ouch. View the video here.

    FORT LUPTON — Barry Manilow's "I Write the Songs" may begin with the line, "I've been alive forever,'" but for noise ordinance violators, listening to Manilow may feel like forever. Fort Lupton Municipal Judge Paul Sacco says his novel punishment of forcing noise violators to listen to music they don't like for one hour has cut down on the number of repeat offenders in this northwestern Colorado prairie town.

    CHEESY crooner Barry Manilow was unveiled yesterday as a weapon in the fight against teen mobs. Council chiefs say shops should pump out uncool songs such as Barry’s Mandy to scare kids away. The Local Government Association found this was a big hit in Australia and drew up a hit-list of bad-taste tunes. The move came as Children’s Commissioner Sir Al Aynsley-Green called to ban the Mosquito device, which emits a high-pitched sound that only under-25s can hear. THE NAFF TOP FIVE: 1.

    A Grammy Award winning singer/songwriter has scrapped a scheduled appearance on Barbara Walter's "The View" because he doesn't want to be seen on the same stage as Elizabeth Hasselbeck. Barry Manilow told that he "strongly disagrees" with Hasselbeck's views and that she is "dangerous and offensive." This is the first time in the brief history of the show that a celebrity guest has demanded that one of the co-hosts be sidelined before a cameo appearance is made. Manilow, who has been on the show before – he even gave Hasselbeck a hug once – scrapped the visit because, he...

You are so stupid you probably believe that the Bush administration orchestrated the attacks on 9/11.
