Elizabeth Hasselbeck Fired for Being 'Too Right-Wing' for the View
A poll of viewers drove the decision

Elizabeth Hasselbeck will be leaving The View after nine years on the show. Execs decided not to renew her contract after a poll of viewers revealed that she was disliked for her conservative opinions.

"The viewers they polled all said she was too extreme and right-wing," a show insider told Us Weekly. "People did not watch the show because of Elisabeth. So they told her yesterday her contract would not be renewed."

Hasselbeck has gotten into numerous dustups with her more liberal co-hosts over the years, including a heated argument with Rosie O'Donnell over the Iraq war, which she supported and O'Donnell opposed, and a debate over the morning after pill that left Hasselbeck in tears because she considers the pill equivalent to an abortion.

Co-host Joy Behar is also leaving The View, but she made the decision herself.

Happy to see her go, not because of her political views just because she's obnoxious and narsicistic.

Well, this show is no longer fair and balanced. The producers have now proven that The View is actually The Liberal's View.

I'm glad to see that obnoxious bitch Behar go as well.

I agree the show will probably no longer be as balanced, but I think most people didn't like her because she was so obnoxious, not her political view. Hopefully the producers can find a right leaning person. There must be at least one out there who isn't obnoxious.

Liberals's definition of "obnoxious" = anyone with an opposing view.

Well that makes sense that the viewers were mostly liberal. All us conservatives are working when the show is on.

Then why does Fox ALWAYS present views from well-known Liberals while the other channels rarely do the same for Conservatives?

So they can argue with them, and if they don't like their answers they cut them off.

I'm sad to see Hasselbeck go. Her conservatism stemmed from her Roman Catholicism, unlike the radical individualist, market worshipping ideologues who have hijacked today's conservative movement.

It wasn't her or her conservative views as much as it was her attitude. Apparently a lot of people stopped watching the show because of her. People who love to argue do not do their cause any good. I can't watch that Chris Matthews either, even if I agree with a lot of what he says.

You obviously don't watch. So your contention is it's better not to have any opposing views. Sounds obnoxious to me.

I don't mind opposing points of view. I even like a good contensious argument -IF AND ONLY IF - everyone gets a chance to say their piece without everyone trying to talk at the same time. The chaos that ensues turns me off completely and so I turn off the show. I don't bitch about it or complain to topix. I just do the logical thing - I turn off the show. HMMMMMM sounds like a good idea for a lot of people here.

And what, pray tell, would you know about conservatives, being an avowed far left liberal? You haven't a clue.

Looks like a cut-and-paste job to me. He's never posted an original thought before.
