Elisabeth Hasselbeck not happy with The View

  • 56comments

There is some sort of election coming up, and apparently some people are obsessed with talking about it--and in some cases, screaming about it.

Television personality (I guess that's what they call it nowadays) and The View cohost Elisabeth Hasselbeck is one of those people, and she goes up against a panel of equally vocal ladies with completely opposite views five times a week.

So it's no surprise that she's ticked off.

Online reports claim that tension on the set of The View is once again percolating, and in a related story, the sky is still blue. The View is a breeding ground for spats--that's one of the obvious draws of the program--but with the political climate sweltering, day-to-day drama is routine as conservative Hasselbeck defends her stance against her more liberal cohosts Whoopi Goldberg and Joy Behar.

Now Hasselbeck is rumored to be looking elsewhere for employment, according to The National Enquirer, which isn't exactly known for always hitting the nail on the head.

But in this case, it makes sense. A tattle told the Enquirer, "[She] feels she can't win at The View, but she's been told by friends at Fox News that they'd find a spot for her without hesitation."

Fox has long been assumed of holding a conservative stance, and the 31-year-old Hasselbeck would make the perfect mouthpiece as an anchor for the network's news.

The feud between Hasselbeck and the rest of The View hosts is polarizing, with viewers staunchly sticking up for the people they identify with. Would Hasselbeck's departure be good for The View?
