(SNIP) A new Rasmussen Reports national telephone survey shows that just 30% of Americans view Mexico as an ally of the United States.

    Things are quickly coming to a head at The View, as one fiasco after another has resulted in a top executive of the show deciding he's had enough. Daily Mail Online has learned exclusively that Brian Balthazar, co-executive producer of the show, is leaving to join HGTV as vice president of programming. The producer, who previously launched the fourth hour of the Today Show with Hoda and Kathie Lee, was responsible for day-to-day running of the show and overseeing the volatile cast.

    The View has come under attack from a group of prominent Hispanic women who say the recent treatment of reportedly ousted panel member Rosie Perez has been both racist and sexist. The actress is the center of much talk at the moment that she was fired as a present on The View after less than one season. She is currently on hiatus to perform in Broadway's Fish in the Dark, but insiders say she never adjusted to either the show's signature hard news/soft news chat format or reading a teleprompter. A source on the set of the ABC show also...

    Bill Cosby victim Beverly Johnson found herself in the middle of the war between Rosie O'Donnell and Whoopi Goldberg when she asked Whoopi if she would do a one-on-one interview on The View rather than be questioned by the other co-hosts. Apparently there was no such thing as a holiday cease-fire behind the scenes at the faltering daytime talk show after Rosie learned that Johnson would only appear on the show if Whoopi alone conducted the interview. The ex-supermodel had reached out to Whoopi privately to share her experience with Cosby after seeing the Oscar winner express endless support for...

    Rosie O'Donnell has gone ballistic...again. This time it's because producers of The View, backed by Whoopi Goldberg, want to draw in a younger audience and to that end add flash sales to the mix and finally fill the fifth seat - with a much younger host, a show insider tells MailOnline. The View is desperately trying to find younger viewers. Hosted by Whoopi, 58, Rosie, 52, Nicolle Wallace, 42, and Rosie Perez, 50, the show is drawing in a much older AARP-friendly audience. ABC executives are intent on making changes in an effort to attract viewers in the 18-to-34 demographic,...

    It's only day two of Rosie O'Donnell's return to The View and she's already made an enemy of her conservative co-host, former George W. aide Nicolle Wallace. The fracas started off with the question of whether President Obama is a people person and devolved when O'Donnell took offense at the assertion by Wallace that he might not be. 'I'm not saying things all Dems disagree with,' insisted the Republican PR whiz, before O'Donnell went on the attack.

And three, when did you want to just pop her?" The former aide to John McCain was all too happy to begin her View tenure attacking other Republicans. Wallace joked, "When I first met her I just had an emergency...root canal. I was on...

Biden continued, “Now you’ll be able to make an independent choice: Do you want to stay in that job and still have health insurance, or do you want to stay in that job even though you can get health insurance absent that job?” Biden also added, “It gives women a great deal more freedom.”

    NASA explains: In this NASA Hubble Space Telescope image taken on October 9, the comet’s solid nucleus is unresolved because it is so small. If the nucleus broke apart then Hubble would have likely seen evidence for multiple fragments. Moreover, the coma or head surrounding the comet’s nucleus is symmetric and smooth. This would probably not be the case if clusters of smaller fragments were flying along. What’s more, a polar jet of dust first seen in Hubble images taken in April is no longer visible and may have turned off. So, its not disintegrating, its not a three-piece body,...

    President Obama’s extensive remarks in the White House Briefing Room this afternoon were as surprising as they were gratuitous. He had already made one statement asking citizens to respect the George Zimmerman verdict. Today he did so again but offered no specific policy recommendation with regard to race (although he used it as a forum to assail “stand-your-ground” legislation that ultimately was not at issue in the case). In fact, Obama undid some of the closure he provided in his earlier written statement by intoning: “If a white male teen was involved in the same kind of scenario, that,

Maher mocked Palin's special needs son by referring to him as "retarded" during a June 8 Las Vegas show. When Palin's schedule did not allow for her to guest host, Palin's advisers left the invitation as an open question. This backstory makes Walters's refusal to defend...

But doing a positive segment on a successful female conservative Republican politician was just not an option for liberal co-host Joy Behar, who tried to transform the segment into an occasion to further the liberal media's "war on women" meme.

Indeed, an entire array of tragic questions arises in a bankrupt but suddenly open-minded society in a way unimaginable in a reactionary, affluent one with endless credit: Should those on welfare who have more than three children still qualify for increased assistance for each additional offspring?...

Shutting down Street View in an entire country would be the Internet search giant's most severe response yet to complaints it is violating people's privacy.

One of the The View’s co-hosts yesterday, Joy Behar, a controversial liberal “comedian” with her own show on CNN Headline News, thought it would be immensely funny to mock the 85-year old Queen as “a bumble bee with a drinking problem”...

When Goldberg asked why it was inappropriate, citing 70 Muslims who died in the attacks, O'Reilly said: "Because Muslims killed us on 9/11. That's why.”

    According to tomorrow's New Statesman, Barack Obama was unimpressed by his encounter with David Cameron earlier this year and commented: "What a lightweight!" According to James Macintyre's report, Cameron's attempt to stress his pro-American and Eurosceptic credentials did not meet with Obama's approval. According to Macintyre's diplomatic sources, the Democratic candidate was "distinctly unimpressed" and labelled Cameron a lightweight. Macintyre notes that 48 hours earlier Obama had delivered a speech in Berlin stressing "the importance of Europe's role in our security and our future". Following the meeting with Cameron, Obama apparently asked officials for more information on Tory Euroscepticism. Macintyre...

    When Elisabeth Hasselbeck took shots at ESPN’s Erin Andrews and her skimpy Dancing with the Stars outfits yesterday on The View, it was the first shot fired in what had the potential to be the most irritating celebrity feud of 2010. Instead, it drove both women to tears: Andrews privately, and Hasselbeck in a tearful apology that made for some surreal TV– even for The View. Hasselbeck suggested that Andrews’ revealing outfits showed an absurd lack of judgment in light of recent legal issues with a stalker, half-jokingly arguing that if she were the stalker, “I’m like, ‘Man, I could...

    They all make stupid points (about Palin's crosshair picture). But here is the icing on the cake: They're trying to discuss national affairs with that thing sitting in the middle. It looks like a crossdresser. It's an absolute riot.

    Senator Bayh was a guest on The View. The jackass talked about the need of more bi-partisanship but than joins Behar is taking a swipe at Governor Sarah Palin. Hasselbeck would not stand for it.

  • Your View: Walz(D-Mn) Should Vote as his Constituents Desire

    Mankato Free Press ^ | January 14, 2010 | Rebecca Oerman, Truman
    A recent Free Press article noted that Rep. Tim Walz doesn’t “dispute that a majority of Americans are opposed to the (health care) bill or at least highly skeptical.” Now, let me get this straight: We elected Walz to represent us, we pay his salary through our rising taxes, and yet he is planning to vote against our wishes. How can that be? Does he not understand what his title means? A “representative” is to act in the stead of another. The article then goes on to quote Walz: “The day after we pass it, the sun will rise.” Now,...

    BAGHDAD, Dec. 11, 2009 – I'm frequently asked for my assessment of the situation in Iraq, especially after an incident like the heinous terrorist attacks that killed innocent civilians Dec. 8. Our deepest condolences go to the families and friends of the people killed or injured. The attacks against the people of Iraq are clear indications of an enemy threatened by Iraq's progress in representative government and strengthening national unity. They stand in stark contrast to the compromise and consensus reached on the election law less than a week ago. Iraqis' choice to move forward to a bright future created...

  • The View Sticks Up For ACORN: Republicans Aren't Going to Take Care of the Poor

    The ladies of ABC's "The View" on Thursday spoke out against Republicans who "have always felt that there was something a little off about ACORN," and said the embattled community organization needs to be given a second chance because "the Republicans aren't going to take care of [the poor]." Sure...who cares that they're advising people how to set up child prostitution rings, cheat banks, and evade taxes if they're helping the poor? Of course, nobody on the panel pointed out that the Democrats currently control both Chambers of Congress as well as the White House. Alas, facts are never important...

    . . . your faux-”conservative” representative on ABC’s yenta/hag-fest, “The View,” agrees with President Obama and Whoopi Goldberg that Officer James Crowley–the working-class cop trying to do his job–was “racist” in arresting the completely obnoxious and belligerent Henry Louis “Skip” Gates, Jr. for disorderly conduct. For the last two days on the show, she’s agreed with those two and called the officer a racist, lecturing us on the topic. And the ever vacant Hasselbeck, today, defended and praised Obama for saying Crowley and the Cambridge Police Department acted “Stupidly.” Don’t forget her stellar credential: coming in fourth on the second...
