Losing her view

From the ny post:

Elisabeth Hasselbeck “is toast” on ABC’s “The View,” sources tell us, despite show doyenne Barbara Walters insisting the conservative blonde isn’t getting fired.
Rumors swirling that Hasselbeck was on her way out forced Walters to say last Monday, “We have no plans for Elisabeth to leave this show.” But a source tells us, “ABC is desperate to freshen the show. Ratings are going soft, and research numbers on the stars’ likability are scaring network execs.
“Dumping Joy Behar, who was there 16 years, and Hasselbeck would be the fastest way to do it, they decided. After giving Behar the bad news last week and letting her bow out gracefully, someone leaked the Hasselbeck thing. Some enemies she has on the show saw their chance to get back at her. Barbara was spitting mad that it got mishandled, and called off the firing over [last] weekend.”
While we heard Hasselbeck would go when her contract is up next year, the source added, “It could be earlier, because the ABC brass believes the show needs to be younged-up fast. They easily could coax her to go early.”
Meanwhile the well-manicured claws are out for Behar’s still-warm seat, with “GMA” anchor George Stephanopoulos’ actress-comic wife Ali Wentworth a favorite. But Christie Brinkley is also lobbying hard for the job.
Another source said, “They want another comedienne, so Ali is the favorite. And she’s already seen as part of the ABC family because of George. But Christie really wants the job. Brooke Shields is also very much liked.

so they want to "youngen up" the show, and out of all the other old fat cows on the show, they get rid of hasselbeck? Yeah that makes sense. I think they got rid of behar because shes just not funny anymore, and her attitude had soured. I think they realized that getting rid of her cud also be cover for getting rid of the lone conservative voice, without it raising any eyebrows. And i dont think any of the potential new hosts are anywhere near conservative. So theres gonna be five women all agreeing, and fawning over obama next time he does a PR blitz.

I really don't care. I have never watched the show other than clips shown on youtube and the shows of others. I hate people who cannot make it on talent and ability and must resort to sleeping to the top. Walters has no right to utter one word on morality and is the wrong role model for women in every way, shape, and form.
