Has ABC The View lost its way?

Have you seen The View lately? Well in a word it is sad. There is no chemistry it is just 4 women attempting to give the audience the appearance of camaraderie. Joy Behar and Elisabeth Hasselbeck are gone and sorely missed. I used to find both of them at times too partisan, but they had a real point of view. Now we are left with Whoopi, Barbara, Sherri and the newbie Jenny McCarthy. Not a good mix and this week Brad Garrett is the guest co-host and he literally looks like the bull in the china shop. The show has lost more than two co-hosts. It has lost its mojo. It might be time to put a fork in it or it might be simpler for me to just turn the channel.

Whoopi Goldberg says she is on The View to do her job no matter who else is at the table…is she right or wrong?

Whoopi Goldberg told US magazine that she doesn’t care who sits at the tablee with her as long as she gets paid. I cleaned up her real quote but the linked story contains her more colorful language. Some are shocked by her indefference, but the reality is the ladies are her co-workers. Would you cry if one of your co-workers took another position or if they were fired? The problem is talk shows rely on chemistry to attract ratings. They want the viewers to buy into the premise that the co-hosts are actually friends or in some case family like the Today Show. So when they decide the chemistry is not working the audience reacts negatively. Case in point the duming of Ann Curry. The Today show billed itself as a family so when it came time to change the public reacted by watching Good Morning America. it will be interesting to see if The View suffers a similar fate. Good luck Whoopi you seem like you could be comfortable if it became a one woman show.

Joy Behar leaving The View at the end of the season

Joy Behar has been with The View since the beginning. it was announced today that she will be leaving the popular show. You either love her or hate her and she could really care less. Some of her statements were and are outrageous, but she is never boring and she will be missed from the conversation.

Worthy of a Look: Kevin Powell and Ann Coulter

Was Star Jones ambushed on The View yesterday?

Star Jones appeared on The View yesterday for the first time in 6 years. She left in 2006 when her contract was not renewed. She announced it prior to the agreed upon time and Barba walters was livid. Since that time Jones has had her own show on Court Television and she is now on the NBC Today Show. This morning she was defended by Donny Deutsch who said she was ambushed on The View yesterday, and he went on to say that Barbara Walters and Joy Behar acted like mean girls. My question is were Walters and Behar out of line talking about the past or would it have been weird not to discuss Star’s departure. Tell me what you think. http://todayentertainment.today.msnbc.msn.com/_news/2012/02/23/10486528-donny-deutsch-defends-star-jones-against-the-views-mean-girls

Ann Coulter on Joy Behar Show repeats “Our Blacks” are better talk

Ann Coulter is not backing off of the “our Blacks” are more impressive than the blacks of the Democrat Party talk. The thing that is most glaring is that she really seems to think that what she is saying is in fact a compliment to the blacks in the Republican Party. This paternalistic, arrogant attitude is reflective of someone clueless on race relations. It hearkens back to the day when some white people would say “you are a credit to your race.” This is the same kind of talk with a millenial spin.

Joy Behar explains “the angry black man” on The View…we are officially in crazy land

This morning Michael Moore is a guest on The View. Joy Behar asked him why was he “hating” on the president. He said he was not doing that but he echoed the sentiments of Bill Maher and said the president is half black and half white. Maher said he voted for the black guy, but he got the white guy. So what does this mean? Behar decided to explain how the president did not want to be portrayed as the “angry black guy”. This is so ridiculous. Not every black guy has a chip on his shoulder. Yes many black men can articulate an argument without expletives or threats. Defining anger as an attribute of blackness is insulting. Yes, I think the president needs to stand up to his critics, but his attitude has to do with a mindset not a skin color.

Why did the ladies of The View choose not to chastise Ed Schultz?

Today, the women of  The View attempted to discuss Ed Schultz’ punishment for calling radio talk show host and Fox News contributor, Laura Ingraham a “slut”  They seemingly got sidetracked, and Whoopi Goldberg said Joy Behar has called the co-hosts sluts, and there has been no punishment or repercussions.  Behar said when she calls them the word it is a joke. The thing I found interesting is they never really took Schultz to task for his use of the word. He was angry and he used a vile word in a vile way. I have been writing this blog for over 3 years now, and I can not tell you how many times some of the conservative readers have said that liberals refuse to call out liberals when they are wrong. This is one of the times I have to say there may be something to this argument. If Fox News Bill O’Reilly had called Rachel Maddow a slut, the ladies of The View would have been calling for his head, but in this case they took the opportunity to discuss some aspect of the subject without addressing the liberal donkey in the room.

The View’s Whoopi Goldberg Says its Time to Play the Race Card

Joy Behar’s Ridiculous defense of Gilbert Gottfried

Gilbert Gottfried was fired from his Aflac job after making inappropriate remarks about the Japan earthquake. he called them jokes. Some in the entertainment community are coming to his defense. Yesterday, The View’s Joy Behar said people in Jewish concentration camps made jokes to relieve their stress. I don’t know where she got that from but there is a line between what is funny and what is not, and on the not side I think you will find the Japanese earthquake, the Holocaust and slavery.
