  • Glee Star: "Showering Once a Day is such a White People Thing"

    01/14/2015 3:30:16 PM PST · by rightistight · 66 replies
    Pundit Press ^ | Aurelius
    Appearing on the View yesterday, Glee star Naya Rivera raised eyebrows by saying that “showering once a day is such a white people thing.” The comment came after co-host Nicolle Wallace said that, as the owner of dogs and the mother of a baby, she finds herself showering more and more. Sometimes, Wallace said, there would be “mud” or “pee” in her hair, so she showers, even as many as “three times a day.” “You know, I have to say, I have a theory about showering, which is that white people shower a lot more than ethnics,” Rivera responded. She...

    They might as well change its name from “The View” to “The Feud.” A shrill, backstage brawl at “The View” Wednesday left co-host Rosie Perez in tears while panelists Whoopi Goldberg and Rosie O’Donnell battled over how to cover the latest allegations against Bill Cosby and the racially charged upheaval in Ferguson, Mo., sources said. O’Donnell believed the show — now overseen by ABC News — needed to delve deeper into both controversial subjects, while Goldberg wanted to steer clear of the topics altogether.

    Deadline Hollywood ^ | September 15, 2014 | Lisa de Moraes
    An overhauled The View kicked off this morning with no fireworks, but, of course, it’s only Day 1. The show opened glutinously, with The New Ladies Of The View kissing the rings of Barbara Walters, sitting on a throne, who ordered them to “go out there and let them see why we have the best show in daytime TV.” (Babs stuck around for the rest of the show, looking sort of third wheel-ish, according to a source.) Whoopi Goldberg assumed her long-held position of air traffic controller, settling that question for now as to whether she or Rosie O’Donnell would...

    JULY 19, 2014 A Thor Subject The comics industry grapples with attracting women readers. By Jim Geraghty The surprises came in a trio: First, Marvel Comics announced that the character of Thor, based upon the Norse God of Thunder, would become a woman. The second surprise was the venue in which the switch was announced — ABC’s feminine-minded daytime talk show The View — but perhaps that was predictable, considering that Marvel and ABC Television are both owned by Disney. But the third, and biggest, surprise is that anyone thought this was a good idea. “This is not She-Thor,” senior...

    ABC announced Monday that Barbara Walters’s final day co-hosting The View will be Friday, May 16. That same night, ABC will air a two-hour special at 9:00 p.m. ET highlighting her life and career. Walters announced last May that the 2013-2014 season would be her last on the daytime talk show she created in 1997. “In this business there are legends, there are icons, and then there is Barbara Walters,” said Robert A. Iger, Chairman and Chief Executive of The Walt Disney Company in a statement. “She’s a dear friend and colleague as well as someone I deeply admire, and...

    Returning to The View seven years after departing in an angry, liberal tirade, Rosie O'Donnell sat down with Barbara Walters and some of her former colleagues on Friday. Updating everyone on life since the show, she revealed that Parker, her now 18-year-old son, will be attending the Citadel. The 9/11 truther snapped, "...How do you annoy your left-wing liberal pacifist mother? You become a big military man." [See video below. MP3 audio here.] O'Donnell admitted she interrogated her son as to why he made such a decision and he responded, "Only in America, mom, could somebody like you who came from...

    With his new book The Right Path to promote, there was Joe Scarborough acting as guest co-host on The View Tuesday morning. And the MSNBC host had plenty to say about the current state of his Republican Party, including the belief that the GOP is “too obsessed” with “hating on” President Barack Obama. Scarborough began by laying out the premise of his book, in which he says the GOP needs a new Ronald Reagan-esque figure to lead the party into the future. He said the real problem is that “we’ve been conducting ideological witch hunts in our party. If...

    In an appearance on ABC’s “The View” on Monday, Georgetown Law student and women’s contraception activist Sandra Fluke told viewers to check out Media Matters for examples of over-the-top conservative rhetoric. When asked by co-host Joy Behar if she had anything to say to her critics, Fluke, who made headlines last because of the attacks and subsequent apology she received from conservative talker Rush Limbaugh, encouraged viewers to check out Media Matters’ website. “Well, I would encourage everyone to go to Media Matters because they have an excellent story on their website that gives a list of the various commentators...

    The smug certainty with which leftists insist that they're better people than conservatives has always been an interesting phenomenon. We’re asked to believe that our opponents are more moral, more responsible, more enlightened, and more sensitive than we are one minute…and one of our betters turns around and asks what the big deal is about some outrageous case of moral degeneracy the next. Such is the case of the latest pontifications from The View co-host Joy Behar. In a discussion of Skins, the new MTV show which might have broken child pornography laws by filming actors as young as 15...

    Yesterday, The View’s Joy Behar said “She’s [Sharron Angle] going to hell, this bitch!” Behar also compared Angle’s latest ad to a “Hitler Youth” commercial. So today, Angle sent Behar flowers, with a note thanking Behar for helping her raise $150,000 online yesterday. So what was Behar’s gracious response? “I’d like to point out that those flowers were picked by illegal immigrants,” she tartly said. “And they’re not voting for you, bitch.” (One would hope they’re not voting at all, actually.) And when Barbara Walters told Behar she shouldn’t be saying that anyone was going to be in Hell, Behar...

    It seems not a week has gone by this summer that comedian and "The View" co-host Whoopi Goldberg's strange antics haven't been in the news. On Wednesday, ABC issued a statement defending their daytime talk diva from accusations that she "abused" a guest on the show, White House party-crasher and "Real Housewives of D.C." star Michaele Salahi. Salahi claimed, on Facebook and in an appearance on the fourth hour of the "Today Show," that Goldberg swore at her repeatedly backstage after the taping of Wednesday's show.

    President Barack Obama tried to revive his common touch on Thursday with a mainly light-hearted appearance on daytime television where five women hosts grilled him about his Blackberry, Lindsay Lohan and the Afghan war. His appearance was the first by a sitting U.S. president on a daytime talk show. It allowed Obama to appeal directly to a targeted audience as he fights flagging poll numbers while he and his fellow Democrats try to avoid big losses in the November congressional election. "The View" typically draws 3-4 million viewers and is particularly popular with women who are home at its late-morning...

For the first time in history, a sitting United States President will appear on a daytime talk show when Barack Obama joins the ladies of "The View" for what promises to be some rigorous policy talk - or a gabfest that will embarrass both daytime television (if that's possible) and the office of the President. Before you accuse me of harboring some holier-than-thou, self-righteous indignation over the fact that our commander in chief will sit alongside three comediennes, a reality show star...

    The hosts of The View debated Elton John’s perfromance at Rush Limbaugh’s wedding this weekend, and FNC’s Megyn Kelly gave her own take. As a wedding attendee herself, she was able to relay the cordial tone of the Elton-Rush, uh, partnership. Kelly introduced The View debate, saying, “While tolerance and respect were on display at the wedding, those qualities were missing from some over at The View this morning.” Joy Behar and Elisabeth Hasselbeck took opposite sides of the argument, naturally, with Behar surmising John’s appearance was all about his rumored million-dollar payday. But Kelly says everyone got along very...

In a March 30 appearance on "The Tonight Show", Leno asked Behar about her feud with Fox News and talk radio host Glenn Beck. Beck recently suggested there is an "I Hate Glenn Beck" club and that Behar was a member. Behar denied she hated Beck. ‘Oh yeah, Glenn Beck - I can't take a man who...

On the November 4 (Election Day) edition of "The View," a conversation about Sarah Palin’s clearance in the "Troopergate" probe quickly morphed into a fight (three on one) over Reverend Wright. In justifying Wright’s "God damn America" remark, Whoopi confessed "I have been guilty of cussing this country out because we have not always shown our best and put our best foot forward." Aiding Whoopi’s tirade against Elisabeth Hasselbeck, Sherri Shepherd defended Obama’s decision to forego public financing "because they’re swift boating Barack Obama with this Jeremiah...

The film isn’t exactly breaking any box office records, and may not recoup the $30M it needs to break even. Perhaps this comes down to paycheck issues.

Appearing to promote his new documentary "Religulous," Maher continued his soapbox rants against organized religion. Elisabeth Hasselbeck set up Maher noting his comparison of President Bush to Osama Bin Laden, and noted that many presidents such as John F. Kennedy, Franklin D.

    Hard to believe, but Meredith Vieira is apparently not a regular NewsBusters reader. The Today co-anchor would otherwise have avoided an embarrassing lapse. On Today this morning, Vieira claimed that it was only "blogs" that went after Sarah Palin's family matters. That left her vulnerable to McCain senior adviser Steve Schmidt's zinger, pointing out that one of her own network's anchors had questioned Palin's ability to serve as vice-president while attending to her children' needs. Schmidt was presumably referring to Brian Williams. As we noted yesterday in Williams Hides Behind Pantsuits to Take 'Who's Minding Baby?' Shot, the Nightly News...

Rosie O'Donnell ridiculed Bush's charity endeavor by comparing it with money spent on Iraq (“$500 billion in Iraq, but he wants to thank America for the $70 billion,” really million) and linked the appearance to how “all...

    Rosie O'Donnell Will Probably Leave 'The View' Wednesday, January 10, 2007 By Roger Friedman Rosie Will Probably Leave 'The View' Rosie O'Donnell — quite rightly, I believe — has had enough of Barbara Walters and "The View." I am told that she is not likely to renew her one-year contract when it ends in June and will leave the crazy talk show after boosting its ratings higher than ever. Sources say that Rosie feels that the backstage antics at "The View" "are completely dysfunctional." O'Donnell, who's got plenty of money and lots of outside interests, simply doesn't need to be...

    Rosie O'Donnell says Donald Trump is a man obsessed. "It's the way I look. He can't resist. I love when people say you're fat like you don't know," O'Donnell joked Monday on ABC's "The View.""... It's always the first comment of someone who disagrees with you if you happen to be on the plus side." Trump has been hurling insults at O'Donnell since she criticized his news conference with Miss USA Tara Conner last month. Trump announced that Conner would be allowed to keep her title, which had been in jeopardy because of underage drinking. "Boy, did I hit a...

    Caught on Tape: James Brolin Touts 9/11Conspiracy Website on 'The View' Posted by Tim Graham on December 28, 2006 - 15:55. The Christmas break replay season offered a chance to catch up on shocking episodes of "The View" on ABC. On December 26, a replay of the December 6 program gave viewers in the Eastern and Central time zones the chance to see James Brolin pitch a government-set-up-9/11 website: "Can I tell you to have a look at www.911weknow.com? And then wait until I see you next time." The first broadcast was blocked in the East due to doting live...

    The Shrew's mother, Bonnie, passed away quietly Wednesday morning, November 1. All of her children and most of her grandchildren were able to be at her side or speak to her before she died. Her family had recently learned that a cancer thought to have been conquered had returned. To those of us who know him, The Shrew is a tireless worker on behalf of conservatism. He prefers to quietly get things done, without a lot of recognition. Let us remember The Shrew and his family as they struggle with the loss of their beloved mother.

    The wigs and faces have come off on morning television -- and the nails are out! It isn't pretty. Barbara Walters coldly ripped into outgoing VIEW talker Star Jones this morning on ABC-TV. Walters announced that Star would no longer be permitted to appear on the show -- effective immediately -- after Star strayed from script during an exit that's turned ugly. Transcipt: WALTERS: "And then there were three. This is, truthfully, a very difficult day for us, and it is a sad day for us. If you were watching the program yesterday, you would have heard Star announce that...
  • Claws Come Out On "The View" (sandra bernhard slimes Laura Bush)

    Comedienne Sandra Bernhard appeared on the show and, amidst a discussion about Laura Bush, characterized the First Lady, with her typical acidity as "heavily medicated." Co-host Elizabeth Hasselbeck, a vocally ardent Republican, took acute exception and tried to defend Mrs. Bush's work on childhood education, whereupon Bernhard called Hasselbeck "honey" – and then the sparks really flew. It was all a bit too much for Joy Behar to bear, apparently.

    Hosts of ABC's "The View" Gang Up on Giuliani for Backing Bush Joy Behar ridiculed Giuliani for claiming that the first thing he said after the 9/11 attacks was "thank God" George W. Bush "was our President" and she insisted that "of course" Al Gore would have been just as "tough" on terrorism. Former CBS News correspondent Meredith Vieira, who participated Sunday in an anti-Bush march, seemed similarly ignorant, scolding Giuliani: "The implication is that if you disagree, I think, with the administration that somehow you are on the side of the terrorists. " Giuliani shot back: "That isn't who...

    The heated argument consumed nearly eight minutes, so space permits only some limited excerpts as provided by the MRC's Jessica Anderson who caught the August 31 exchange: Joy Behar: "Did you really say that, 'Thank God he was our President'? That's the first thing you said? You didn't say 'Oh, expletive,' or something?" Rudy Giuliani: "No, no, that wasn't the first thing I said. That's one of the things that I said on September 11th to my police commissioner. It really came out because that was just a few months after that disputed election, and so I had called the...

    Tonight on Radio FreeRepublic8pm ET Politics Today with Tim Ziegler (The Shrew)IRS THREATENS SECOND AMENDMENT NEWSLETTERS: Under the guise of “campaign finance reform,” the U. S. Supreme Court's devastating decision in McConnell v. FEC threatens to outlaw issues-oriented newsletters, particularly pro-gun publications. GOA Director LARRY PRATT said, “The IRS is leaping forward to expand the Court's ruling to include GOA newsletters, e-mail alerts, and other Second Amendment communications.” Put out for comment on December 23, 2003 -- when, presumably, no one would notice -- proposed IRS Revenue Ruling 2004-6 created a broad new set of ambiguous standards which groups like...

    Radio talk show host Laura Ingraham received a hostile reaction last week from crew on ABC’s daytime show, The View, to the premise of her new book, Shut Up and Sing: How Elites from Hollywood, Politics, and the UN are Subverting America. Other than Rachel Campos, one of three finalists auditioning to join the show permanently, the co-hosts were all appalled by Ingraham’s contention that elites on the coasts are out of touch with “the heartland.” When Ingraham argued “that the Democratic Party is not connecting with the people who are its logical constituents, from the South and from the...
