Elisabeth Hasselbeck leaving 'The View'
Elisabeth Hasselbeck is officially vacating her seat on "The View." After joining the table in 2003, representatives tell CNN that Wednesday, July 10, will mark Hasselbeck's final day on the successful morning talk show, currently in its 16th season.
"For a decade, Elisabeth Hasselbeck has brought her passion and strong beliefs to "The View," ABC said in a statement. "We watched her journey from newlywed to motherhood, an Emmy Award-winning talk show host, author, entrepreneur and activist. She stood behind her political views even if they were not the most popular opinions at the table, never shying away from voicing a difficult question. We thank Elisabeth and wish her luck as she begins this new chapter of her career."
According to The Hollywood Reporter, Hasselbeck's new chapter involves heading to Fox News in the fall to fill the spot on morning show “Fox & Friends” recently left open by co-host Gretchen Carlson.
Rumors ran rampant about the possibility of Hasselbeck's exit when former panelist Joy Behar announced her departure earlier this year. The former reality star denied the speculation at the time, but today "The View" co-host and executive producer Barbara Walters also confirmed the news and shared her well-wishes for the star.
“When Elisabeth survived ‘Survivor’ we wanted to make sure she would stay afloat,” Walters wrote in a statement. “We have had 10 wonderful years with her and she will now be swimming in new waters. We will miss her and wish her everything good.”
Hasselbeck first joined the show after journalist Lisa Ling put in her notice. Prior to “The View,” Hasselbeck was best known as a finalist on the second season of CBS reality hit, “Survivor.” Throughout her time on the popular series, Hasselbeck stirred controversy both on and off screen for her right-leaning opinions and heated debates with the other panelists.
Hasselbeck made headlines for a 2007 on-air argument with former "View" co-host Rosie O’Donnell concerning the war in Iraq. The conservative panelist also had an uncomfortable moment in 2008 with Whoopi Goldberg over the use of the "N word."
The news comes on the heels of Barbara Walters’ May announcement of her forthcoming retirement. Walters will be leaving the show in May 2014. No word yet on who will be filling the newly open spots, though some outlets place Jenny McCarthy as a frontrunner for the gig.

Seriously, why don't Republicansd and their neo-con buddies make a new party called simply "the NO party". Their party platform can be to repeal every law ever passed and filibuster any new ideas. Imagine that! The neo-cons will heroically lead us back to the pre-enlightenment period! Wow, what patriotic people we have on the right side of politics! If they hate their own country and their own people so much why don't they move? It's not really their america anymore since blacks got the vote anyway.
Hasselbeck is a good mother, wife and loyal too her husband that is why everthing is working out for her
ABC had too let her go they found her a disturbance.
I would be proud to work for this woman she's smart, people person, make a good impression, good wife and mother.
yea i'd be happy to be her assistant
they have her....she will never be an embarrassment too the fox network like a lot are.
this woman is a star in new York...happy for her and fox
she appears too have a functional marriage, career, kids she's perfect for the job and yes she is an excellent field reporter.
She is a very good field reporter, she is up at 4am working hard, fox will be impressed with her...
I have too give credit where its due....fantastic marriage, totally professional, beautiful presence and knows how too get the job done.
I will say she's an ambitious career woman...that is the truth
she does not utilize her tool well..this is why all yes will be on her at Fox now more then ever...
Hasselbeck is mess from the start unprofessional, rude and glad abc asked too walk ... she wont last at fox she's no people oriented and has huge vocal cords read some of the internet crap....she won' last long with the Fox tools either.
what she does not realize this is the only the beginning of the end of her tool career
however hopefully all will go well at fox...she's a go getter she's not one of those lazy ass women...she is a career girl, ambitious wife and mother...the marriage she says is working...so hey all good
Good riddance.No more of her incipient moaning.The View needs a complete overhaul.Shall miss Barbara but not the other 2
I have no idea how anyone can possibly watch F&F. The combination of hosts that are brain-dead to begin with, along with any host with half a brain deliberately "talking down" to the audience, should be enough to insult anyone. Apparently not Fox viewers. And apparently Fox thinks their viewers need/want to be "talked down" to.
It's funny listening to all these libbies excited about her departure. The woman could have found a cure for cancer and they would have found fault with that. At least there are people who want to see Hasselbeck. Libby hags like O'Donnell and Behar couldn't even get libs to watch them on minor cable networks.
Yeah, and Obama or any other "libbie" could also cure cancer and you fcuking repukelicans would still find fault with him, so it goes both ways, Walt. Your side is no better...
Yeah,. If Obama found a cure for cancer what would the republicans say? Their favourite word – NO! No to immigration, no to same se-x marriage, no to health care, no to abor-tion, no to helping the poor, no to helping the elderly, no to equal rights for minorities, NO, NO , NOOOOOOO!!! They have no positive ideas for the future. Just no, no no!
Should have either never been hired, or fired after her first day. Good riddance.
How do you people have time to watch this stupid program? Don't any of you have a job?
Good riddance.......Been waiting a long time.....
Ms. Hesselbeck should celebrate getting off The View. She was the only voice of sanity among the far left / emotional basket case hosts for that program. A program that is on the level of Jerry Springer.
good riddans Elizabeth...you'll screw up again....hahahahahaha
Riddans huh? Pure gold.
disaster area- long day but we got the cali contact
what is this Hasselbeck and View of which you speak?
She can join the other airhead at Fox, Gretchen Carlson. Can't wait to watch Gretchen in her own show! That should be fun!
Honestly, the show has been suffering for awhile. They should pull it when Barbara leaves. Whoopi is a loose cannon and Sheri, though sweet, isn't enough to reign her in. I gave up watching years ago.
Me too! And now that Elizabeth is gone, I will quit watching altogether. I appreciate that she was the only dissenting voice. Who wants to hear Whoopi argue and then agree with herself all the time.
Headed to Fox news? suprise suprise.
No Loss..Hasselbeck is an idiot.
Well, she is BLOND and hot...so FOX will hire her.
Finally, she is leaving. Absolutely will not follow her to Fox + Friends. Hope to never see her face again
The useless, oxygen-sucking humanoids always end up on Faux News.
Notice how the liberal people just make nasty, hateful comments and call people names. They apparently aren't smart enough to make a rational well thought out argument to support a position. I would like to know the average IQ of people on this blog.
Now here is something hilarious. Fox News is wholly owned by News Corp.
News Corp's second largest stockholder is Prince Alwaleed of Saudi Arabia.
Fox is owned by Arab Muslims
My feelings exactly. Liberal 101.... If you don't have anything constructive to say, trash the person!
Head in the sand or hypocrite? Which one are you?
Ughhh! The only semi-voice of reason on a show featuring a coffee klatch of cackling, clucking hens "emoting and spewing" all kinds of nonsensical garbage. It's now a noun e.g. "The View." Anytime there is a similar klatch of hysterical women going on and on about how they "feel" about nothing with no logic, no reason, and no accountability.
Well, isn't that what women do?
Fox News is next.
Good riddance. The View just got a whole lot better.
I couldn't agree more; long overdue – like two elections ago overdue. Yeah! I'm delighted.
IT'S TO BAD THAT OUR COUNTRY HAS DEGENERATED TO THE POINT IT'S IN BECAUSE OF PEOPLE WHO HAVE NOTHING BETTER TO DO THAN CRITICIZE EVERY THING THEY DON'T LIKE. 'BUT THEY SAY YOU CAN'T FIX STUPID .
good riddance....you're perfect for the unintelligent viewers of faux news...btw eat a sandwich
So the only voice of reason is leaving. She should have received combat pay working with that far left of center group. They are just pathic whinners. Wonder is another conservative will be stupid enough to take the abuse. I guess for the right money she will.
but what can one do.
we're glad she's out
She'll be much more comfortable at Fox Entertainment Channel.
She's definitely better suited on fox and friends. She never knew what the hell she was talking about on the view.
We wish her well as we have grown to accept her and her views and have found her to be heart felt and honest and especially truthful as she has grown. It will be a shame that her views will not be at the table any longer and her intelligence and excellent skills in conservation will be absent even though most of the time we don't agree, but it makes for interesting conservation and brings intelligence to the sometimes, if not all the rants that Sherri spews about subjects she clearly has no comprehension in.
Our only disappointment is with The Views executives that swore up and down that she was not leaving and that Joy stays on till the end of her time, but Elizabeth leaves ASAP. What really happened and how much of this was BS. I must admit and state that I think now more than ever and going forward that Babara Walters lied about Elizabeth's departure and unfortunately this leaves a bitter taste in my mouth about Barbara and what remains of The View. How unfortunate that it will no longer be a show about views and just a show called The View.
anthony, some "views" are just not needed in today's world-we dont need white, rich, oppressive conservative craaap on the air anymore-they have fatso Rush for that
What does it say about the media that one right-leaning opinion is considered "controversial" but all her left-leaning co-hosts are considered "normal?"
Lets face it, views that aren't approved by progressive minded people should NOT be aired. It isn't that conservatives should be rounded up and placed in camps (that will come later). It is that we should all think alike. The very definition of diversity is people of all colors and creeds coming together to agree on appropriate views and opinions. Diversity of thought is NOT to be tolerated as it offends the prevailing wisdom. The sooner we all collect together as one the better we will be. Individuality is just another word for misogyny, racism and religious bigotry. We must all think alike in order to be truly free.
Fantastic, now Conservatives are as persecutes as the Jews in the 2nd world war? Wow pathetic argument, but what should we expect from the people who dont care about truth – just themselves.
we're not doing this anymore...
That is absolutely an insult to the millions of Jews who were tortured in concentration camps. It's not a political play thing for you. Hitler was from the right side of politics too you know.
We're not doing this anymore...she had a fight with him this morning so she's bold....
M.A.P. – You are correct. Conservatives are NOT persecuted. Their views are dangerous which is why they SHOULD eventually be placed in camps. You know, where they could concentrate on the error of their views.
Now some people say conservatives have a right to their views. Don't tell me you agree with the troglodytes who actually believe conservative points of view have a valid right to be heard? You can't be that much of a racist M.A.P.!
M.A.P. – You are correct. Conservatives will eventually be placed in gulags. (Stalin was on the far left don't you know).
I don't think anyone should be persecuted for their opinions. But I do think that destructive and hateful opinions can be changed. Your overreaction is to be expected because most right wingers have an extremely short fuse, and cannot accept OTHER PEOPLES OPINION. Don't try to re-label yourselves as the free moinded party – you're not. Your party openly condems immigrants, gays, women, anyone who isnt a rich white straight american male. That is the problem.
Oh, and I wouldn't worry about your views getting aired – you have an entire network devoted to it. And dont gimme that crapp than CNN is all for Obama, they've been plenty of critical articles written about him so don't lie.
LOL, should be rounded up and placed in camps (that will come later).
Hello, we have the guns Sherlock. I beg you to try and round me up moonbat.
See n222s? Even one of your own is too dumb to realize you were being sarcastic. Proves my point really.
we also will not be checking the system anymore-we are done.
it will be fine... but no communication on fox blogging that's for sure. As a matter of fact much less communication will have too take place in order for the station too be alright.
If you li ed it will show on the radar also
funny comedian, with her companion for 30 years, excellent comedy timing however she had enough with the station but I hear she will return again with another new show.
It always amazes me that Libs always argue for individual rights and the freedom to choose. Yet, they are some of the most closed minded, rude, hostile and ignorant people if your views differ. And the anger towards Fox news... Cracks me up when all of the other news media outlets are in the tank for Obama.... Oh wait, goes back to my first point, you can have your own views unless they are different from mine. Then you are a bigot, racist, etc...
History will record how the country is currently screwed and nothing is going to get fixed. Libs like to point the finger, but isn't that the way things are now? It's always someone else's fault instead of taking responsibilty for ourselves and our own actions.
Wow. Another ignorant comment from the party of HATE.
Your observations are astute and your written words concise and persuasive. Thank you for your civil contributions to this dischordant page, so full of leftist venom.
You should stop trying to divide the nation and try to find a constructive way forward. Insread you would rather constantly critisize the Pres. and lie about facts.
@Joseph – You ain't seen NOTHING yet. I'm one VERY angry Liberal. Sick of you neo-cons lying your way thorugh every debate.
She has a "history"–sorry.
Amazing indeed. What in the world are you talking about? We SHOULD all think alike. Which is the very essence of diversity. Let me give you an example. My mother went in for heart surgery and a white woman, a cardiovascular specialist recommended a stent. Luckily, I asked that the white woman consult a person of African descent, Native American descent, Hispanic descent, Aboriginese descent, Indian descent before she could perform the procedure.
Well, they all agreed with the white surgeon. So I let her proceed. Mom is doing well. Just think what could have happened had I NOT ask for diversity.
Your comment makes no sense.
The party of HATE? Really, Did you see any hateful comments posted from a conservative? Seems as though most of the hate comes from the left. And a conservatives views are different from yours. However, you cannot respect them because they are different. You automatically lump all conservatives into one box. Many conservatives are not hateful people. That's like trying to say all Muslims are terrorists. You say that to a liberal and look out!! But it is ok for them to say all conservatives are full of hate. Does that make sense?
The country has never been more divided in history. How did that happen? Oh wait, let me guess, Bush's fault?
Oh Cmon Mr AMAZING yo0u know everything is Obama's fault. They said so on Fox news afterall. I don't mind idiotic views being expressed, its just when i see other dumb people starting to fall for the rhetoric, i think its not right.
I feel bad for her...I hope she gets help.
Here's the thing I don't get. Republicans are always calling the Democrats the party of hate. It's ok for them to do it, but not for anyone else? The Republicans generally hate the poor, alot of the middle class, the g ays, all libs, blacks, the Hispanics, pretty much anyone who isn't rich or white. So who is the party of hate? Libs like all people. We fight for all people's rights. You guys, not so much.
it was false..my father told me I received a page that said "false"...
More importantly, George Zimmerman will be found not guilty and the way is paved to sue Seminole County for malicious prosecution and disbar that elected prosecutor. Of course we're all sorry Trayvon couldn't pass high school, had a chemical addiction issue he used crime to support, and resorted to violence to solve his problems. Decompose in peace, Trayvon. Trayvon was a big fan of Joy Behar.
I will state this simply just for you. You are an azz!
agreed she is an azz
Thanks for reminding us that the Republican voter base is still deeply infested with bigots such as yourself. Now I understand their semi rac-st rhetoric on immigration – it's to keep morons like you voting red.
George Zimmerman should take a spot on The View. That show desperately needs a voice of reason with Hasselbeck's departure.
Well, Elizabeth will not be missed on The View. I think Fox is the best place for Elizabeth... people there have the same narrow minded as she.
As long as Liz does her job she stays if she starts her sh-t like abc she's out....we have experience with mr. Murdoch
and know what he's about–
ABC fired her because she fights all the time....Barbara had too do it ..it was getting too much and liz was looking like a fool at this point...hopefully at fox she will keep her mouth shut however in our experience with Mr. Murdoch he does not put up with too much sh-t....he hears something about her mouth – she's gone.....thanks

Wasn't he on Bay Watch?
the other is a dem...not sure where you get your political scoops from....be quiet
I cannot believe fox hired her
hi baby? how goes it...
she will be fine. I mean anyone who can deal with odonnell, Goldberg and beyhar and the other far left windbags for so long has my vote!
Maybe faux could have her and Palin co-host a show and call it Dumb & Dumber
Stop giving him reminders to win points...you had an argument this morning go work on that.
still have the stamina in the personal area and will play drums for my 50th. have a nice day is perfect.
Great! Hasselback is history on the Talk. She can screw up FOX news now. Can't believe they hired her – she's no newscaster, but then again, none of those airheads they have on FOX and friends made it past the 5th grade. She'll fit right iin. When this new stint is over, she can return to what she does best – breeding and whining.
Stopped watching that show years ago...partly because they annoyed the heck out of me all talking at the same time. The biggest reason was Assleback and her rodent faced comments and soap box rants. THen Sherry Shepherd took over as the most annoying on the show. Just pull the plug on the whole thing please. Could've predicted she'd head straight for Faux News. Good riddance.
how was my bon jovi video?
Since when did "personal relations" become a deal-what the h-ll is going on here...
Don't get excited..i really believe they are watching the news...its not a big deal
Wow. The heated vitriol on this blog shows the divide between us. News flash for The View fans: Barbara Walters, Joy Behar, and Whoopie Goldberg are perceived as horrible people by good Americans because they are statists promoting government solutions to all perceived societal ills. They are quintessential do-gooders. Alas, none of these ideas or programs work! Let's peaceably divide before violence erupts and just go our separate ways. You have enslaved me to pay taxes for your foolhardy ideas, and I want to be done with you. Wallow in your dependancy, lib.
I'll bet you're one of those pathetic teabaggers that crawl a mile over broken glass just to sniff the tire tracks of the truck that took Sarah Palin's sh!t stained underwear to the laundry.
I know a lot of people what watch fox...truth
Only morons watch Fox News. The same morons who eat at Chick-fil-A.
I told you the reason why you can't see in the other room because of nude city downstairs..sheesh
your secret is with me Tank
us kids use too get a smack for that....ha
I remember the short period of time when we all thought she was hot – it was after Survivor and before she opened that stupid yap of hers on The View.
Perhaps Michelle Malkin would provide the stability the show needs?
I don't watch the Spew but my spouse does and I occasionally have to endure Assholbeck's whiny, grating rants about everything rePUBICan. In time, the entire cast will be replaced and the show will fade away.
I guess she is tired of trying to convince Americans to believe her lies so she will join a network that shares her Anti American views.
I hear Hasselbeck's new Faux News show will feature her, Michelle Malkin, Megyn Kelley, Gretchen Carlson, and Ann Couilter all dressed in black and stirring a boiling cauldron. The idiots who get their indoctrination from Faux News shoiuld just love it!
They're going to grow their beards out and do a ZZ Top tribute band.
Elizabeth was the most attractive and well-spoken. Typical libs are intolerant of diversity of thought, and demand conform-or-be-crushed. Libs, racistly, want diversity of race only, even though the remaining members don't have a nickel's worth of difference or anything to contribute beyond that day's e-mail distro talking points. Mindless. Fox trends upwards, View is the pied piper for obama's army of militant freeloaders and trendoing downwards.
As H.L. Mencken said "not all conservatives are stupid people, but all stupid people are conservatives". Thanks for once again proving him right.
Wow. It is unbelievable how narrow minded conservatives are. At some point....your ish stinks too.
Thank you @Sam for that genius comment. You do not respond to the idea's merits, but instead resort immediately to ad hominem attacks (That means name-calling, Sam). You amply display yourself as an intolerant leftist whose irresistable emotional impulse is to attack others. How's that obama vote working out for you?
Nobody is attacking anyone this is a blog.
My Obama vote is working out great, thanks for asking. I'm still happily unemployed, high on medicaid anti depressants on a sofa in my sec 8 housing eating food stamp cheetos you paid for as I watch The View. So get back to work and pay taxes so Obama can redistro your money to me, ha ha ha!
i'm going too chico's soon...major sales!
"Typical libs are intolerant of diversity of thought, and demand conform-or-be-crushed"
So, if a conservative has a different opinion than the party leaders, they are accepted and supported openly? Riiiiiiight.
So, conservatives are tolerant of diversity? Riiiiiiiiiiiight.
Are you delusional or just do you just not care that you spread horrendous lies?
this is just a blog
Hooray for Fox! Their business model is flourishing, while the confirmation bitter hippie hags on the View wander in mindless oblivion patting themselves on the back that their New England liberal perspective is right and everybody else is wrong. Hot conservative chicks rock! Had your thirtieth abortion yet, Whoopie? The aggregate IQ of the remaining View dingbats may be mid eighties.
The only reason Fox's "business model" is flourishing is because stupid people like you want to to be told what to think instead of doing it for yourself.
Yes, Elizabeth was the nicest, sweetest, not to mention best looking person on that show by far. All the other banshees were absolute trash. Her only problem was she was outgunned and seemed to lack the rock solid strength and composure needed when dealing with those kinds of nasty's.
I doubt whoopi had any abortions since she's lesbian, or if she did have any I never heard of it.
Gotta love someone whose biggest concern for their news is how hot the woman is. Obviously, you are confusing news with entertainment.
Obviously, you are confusing news with entertainment.
That is what Fox does. And the people who watch it don't know the difference.
Sam baby, please. When you were told the Affordable Care Act was going to be great...did you read the bill or were you told to love it? When you were told that shovel ready jobs were going to be created (which O and Biden later said was a meaningless term) did you buy it? When you were told John Kerry was not on his yacht during the Egyptian coup (later proved by pics and admitted by reps) did you believe it? When you were told it was only two rogue IRS agents responsible for targeting certain groups, did you believe it? When Weiner said the pics were photoshopped and he was innocent, did you buy it? I could go on and on and on.
Does the right buy what they are told? Of course, we all have a tendency to believe what we want to believe. But to believe that you, Sam, are the great arbiter of truth, able to discern fact from fiction because you are a progressive is ludicrous.
Good luck with the genius IQ there Sammy. Again, what have you bought from the left that was later proven to be false?
Sweet cherry wine!
Hey Barbara, how about putting just a everyday, working mom, housewife on as a co-host.. Why does it always have to be a movie star or somebody that is already famous. You would be surprised what just an average, everyday woman could bring to the VIEW.
That will never happen because the bottom line is ratings and profitability for the show.. That's why the show has lost its original idea and focus.. Why iare so many making comments about Fox news? Maybe the View is old news.

When the show started it was very good, five women discussing and sharing their views. Now the show is not open to listening and discussing views. I feel that there is a prominant view that must accepted and that other views are not really welcomed unless that view is made to look wrong. Whopi likes to talk over Elizabeth and is rude. Joy and Whopi walk off the set. I don't agree with Bill Oreilly but the show is supposed to discuss and share views. That was totally unprofessional. I hope that whoever they ask to represent the conservative view that they will have to understand that they are the token, their views are not really welcome or important to the other panelists. Sad show.
Three day old rancid tuna fish would be more like it.
To be honest, I have always thought that Elisabeth was Charlie McCarthy to Bill Geddies' Edgar Bergen. (For those of you who don't know, Charlie was a dummy, and Bergen was a ventriloquist.) I don't think she had many original thoughts of her own. I always sensed that she was Bill's mouthpiece.
Praise the LORD! I thought this day would NEVER come!!!! Good riddance shiny face.
I got to admit, this is the best news I've heard lately. I never liked that little twit. Her "opinions" were obviously Faux News based talking points anyway. Yeah, she will fit right in there at Faux, the no fact, opinion based, entertainment show for the uninformed. You want to talk about sheep following the flock, go to Faux. They wouldn't know a fact if it slapped them in their right wing faces. And for you morons who keep blaming the President for all your woes, maybe you should look at your GOP leaders in the House and the Senate. They have been obstructionists ever since the President took office. Yeah, what a terrible job the President has done. Let's see. Stock market is soaring. Unemployment is coming down (which would have come down more if the Republicans had not stopped a jobs bill. Where's the jobs, Boehner? Funny, they talk jobs, but abortion and womens health rights have become the only thing they focus on). We are out Iraq, and leaving Afghanistan. Obama Care. Lilly Ledbetter bill. End of discrimination (at least federally ) for the g ay community. Housing prices are going back up, and builders are busy again. I could go on and on. So, Elizabeth, go to Faux News. Now, I never have to hear your absolutely lame opinion on anything again.
Ugh, Georgina, numerous Jobs Bills have been passed by the House but your great leader, Harry Reid, in the Senate won't bring them to the floor. So but the blame where it actually belongs, on Harry.
stop it already.
@gonetopot I can find you many more of these conformations, if you like. You are right. Many jobs bills have been sent to the Senate, but they all sucked! That is the reason Harry Reid does not bring them to the floor. Maybe if they sent a real jobs bill, he would bring it to the floor for a vote. When you have bills loaded with pork, or anti women's medical rights in them, or whatever else they try to jam into them, yeah, he's not going to bring them to a vote. Job bills come from the House. Who runs the House? The GOP. All they try to do is advance their agenda anyway possible. Why do you think they keep sending the same kind of bill to the Senate. They know it is not going anywhere. They are doing a huge disservice to this country by doing this. Hey, here's a novel idea. Why don't the GOP actually just work on a jobs bill without jamming it full of crap?
In interviews conducted by The Huffington Post with five economists, most said the GOP jobs package would have no meaningful impact on job creation in the near term. Some said it was not likely to do much in the long term, either.
"A lot of these things are laughable in terms of a jobs plan that would produce noticeable improvements across the country in the availability of employment in the next four or five years," said Gary Burtless, a senior economist at Brookings. "Even in the long run, if they have any effect all, it would be extremely marginal, relative to the jobs deficit we currently have."
Mark Zandi, the chief economist at Moody's Analytics, agreed that the bills would have almost no effect on job creation in the short term, though he was slightly more optimistic about their long-term prospects.
She is a very eloquent speaker. However, *hit comes out of her mouth. She's had 10 years to educate herself for debating topics. Unfortuantely, she will read her notes from the card in front of her and debate or deviate from what she read. She's not very knowledgeable about history or, will remember high and low points of an adminstration...but that's it. I don't know how she's going to do on Fox News but I'm glad she's off the View.
LOVE your comment!
She revealed how foolish whoopi sounded at times, when they debated abortion, whoopie goes "maybe the woman doesn't have the money for the baby and the timing is not good" – what a stupid argument to support killing a human life. And we wonder why there's so much pure violence around our society, it's fools like whoopi who pave the way for people to embrace violence and murder by disrespecting innocent life. And the other dopey one Joy behar chimes in with whoopi saying and I'm pro life too (even though she's pro abortion) what you are Joy and Whoopi – be honest and be real – you are Pro Lethal Injection of innocent human babies. Be real and say what it is – don't hide.
Maybe now, I can take a little time to enjoy the view....Whoopie, Babawa,Joy, Sherri.......ahhhhhhhhh, i guesss maybe NOT!!!!!!
Her voice will stop you from drinking coffee in the morning and want a sedative.
She's a perfect fit for the Faux News channel. Another dingbat to work among the dingbats. You know what they say -birds of a feather flock together.
I'm so sick of stay at home mums expecting to be praised like heros for their desicion. A lot of women would love to but dont have the luxury, they have to earn MONEY for their FAMILY. I think it's ridiculous, they should nt be discriminated against of course, but dont expect a hero's applaud for you staying home to clean up after the children YOU decided to have.
Perhaps you should have had puppies?
I guess she did alright. She parlayed a marriage to a mediocre at best quarterback into a TV gig.
....and your Partner is?
Made my day! Good riddance.
She is a pain, cannot stand her. She comes off as Miss Know it all. Now I will not watch Fox news if she is on it. How does a shoe designer become a Journalist. She is a joke.
Well, one thing is for SURE about hassebeck – she is a polarising figure! Just look at these comments from the stupid right wingers tryin to make their non-issues with liberals. simply pathetic!
From article: "Rumors ran rampant about the possibility of Hasselbeck's exit when former panelist Joy Behar announced her departure earlier this year. The former reality star denied the speculation at the time, but today "The View" co-host and executive producer Barbara Walters also confirmed the news and shared her well-wishes for the star."
Just as with politicians, it also appears we cannot believe what tv stars say. First "the former reality star denied the speculation...", but come to find out she lied.
FOX is a good place for her, with all the other idiots.
I think I might be able to have a bottle of champagne chilled by 11. this is something definitely worth toasting. haven't watched The View in a while because of her BS.
"Hasselbeck stirred controversy both on and off screen for her right-leaning opinions and heated debates with the other panelists."
Yes, Hasselbeck was controversial, not the ridiculous things that came out of the mouths of Behar and Goldberg. #CNN_FAIL
#Scott_FAIL_Idiot_Moron, thanks for sharing your stupidity with us.
Maybe Michelle Malkin will fill her slot. No...she'd really make the rest of that crew look like ID10t"s!!!!!!
Says the child writing in all caps.
BASED ON SOME OF THESE COMMENTS WE KNOW WHAT KIND OF PEOPLE LIKE THE SHOW, MEAN, NASTY, ANGRY PEOPLE. I'M SUPRISED SHE LASTED THIS LONG WITH SUCH HORRIBLE WOMEN. I HAVE NO DOUBT THAT MOST OF THE COMMENTS ON HERE ARE FROM 12 YRS OLD THAT ARE OUT OF SCHOOL AND HAVE NO IDEEA WHAT THEY ARE TALKING ABOUT, THEY JUST LIKE TO OPEN THEIR YAPPERS
Seems to me that YOU are the angriest loudest, most stupid person who has left a comment on here as of yet. Don't they have forums at fox news for morons such as yourself? Disappear. The world would be better off for it.
whats that Annie?.................. I can't understand you since you are screaming.
Typing in all capital letters, when pertaining to internet discussions, is also deemed as anger. Reminds me of "calling the kettle black."
Hey Annie...POT MEET KETTLE.
Aside from "yelling" at everyone, you might want to click the "spell check" button before posting. Angry and stupid, maybe you should be hosting a show on FAUX News.
Good riddens and I don't watch Faux News. She is on par of irritation to that Ann Coulter guy.
Unbelievable that there are still liberal idiots out there that believe what the liberal media force feeds them. WAKE UP! You made a big mistake voting the wrong person into office – TWICE! Can't admit your mistake? AT least Hasselbeck spoke the truth and hadn't chugged the kool aid like the rest of you.
I'm just going to assume you are being sarcastic and laugh along with you.
Oh you must be talking about GW, the best president never elected to office. Go back in your cave, you might see Elisabeth there too.
To Serge.........You are wrong and know NOTHING!
The TRUTH will set them FREE! Spread the word!
how are things hunky dorey? I could be missing something here.
He's happy now–need necked time.
She looks pretty on the outside. But that is about it.
The inside is just thick black sludge. She is actually a demon with thick black ooze filling her convincing exterior shell.
It might be 7am where you are. I'm angry!
Take a deep breath, drink tea, sit on the couch and re group
Ok... sorry,... Im breathing.... ok..... it's ok.... Romney lost, Romney lost... phew....
I agree, and I am very happy she is leaving The View. Her contract was not renewed although Barbara Walters tried to deny it to let Elizabeth leave as if it was her own idea. She is going to Fox News where she belongs with the other bigots. We do not allow Fox News to play in our home at all, so goodbye Elizabeth H. and GOOD RIDDANCE.
can't sleep naked upstairs.
Hasselbeck is spoiled snot face with no class.
No surprise she is headed to FOX...the loser network
loser network you say? Can you name a network that has more viewers and proof it with facts? If that is your definition of loser then you live in a upside down world. I am not closed minded as I see a good bit here is. I view and read all the web media and networks. Clearly without doubt Fox is the friendliest and has the least amount of hate and anger. Seriously.. Open your wee lil minds and experience something out of the very little box that has koolaid in the fridge that you live in and see the sunshine... Sunshine
No Ken, it is the loser network. It is run by Rupert Murdoch and it has a strict right winged outblook on every issue. It is in no way fair and balanced. The only reason it has so many viewers is because there are so many stupid idiots in america that only want to hear their own views blurted back at them by some redneck from the south. It justifies their anger at and they blame the governemt for every single little thing. Its a pathetic network for losers. And yes, you are probably a loser too.
Ken, what have you been smoking? The friendliest network? OMG, do you wear eye patches and ear plugs when you tune in to FAUX? They are as biased, racist, and right wing nut jobish as a network can be. I'm still laughing about your statement "they are the friendliest network", LOL, that's priceless.
Thank God. I can finally watch the show without rolling my eyes.
please turn in your man card.
So Fox news just takes all the old neo-con left-overs? What a solid, reliable news center! And now they have a fake barbie doll to add to their collection of brainless idiots.
I am surprise that Ms Walters would even consider hiring such a moron, perhaps she was a cheap ticket. There are so many other conservative women with class and brains that could have taken that spot. But in any case I think that Honey Boo Boo would be and excellent replacement they share about the same brains and class.
Elizabeth never bothered me, Whoopie had her moments and Ms. Barbara is a Class-act. I quit watching the show a long time ago, because of the ever annoying and narcissistic Joy Behar.
OMG, one who speaks without fork tongue. It is refreshing to see a comment that is not left or right leaning and not full of hate.
Ken, you ARE full of hate for liberals, we are not stupid – we can tell.
Probably left because she had a cold hahaha. should've looked at http://www.aliveberry.com/2013/06/how-to-get-rid-of-a-cold/
But seriously, i'm kind of depressed she's leaving. Not only have I only watched this show for years because of her, but I am now not going to bother watching. You've lost yourselves a viewer!
Well goodbye to both of you...no great loss.
Thank god this dumb loud ignorant fool will no longer have a voice on public television. se really was an embarassment for the rest of the panel and her argumentation was pathetic and predictable. Her anti-Obama stance on everything was extremely irritating, especially when she wasd caught out several times not even knowing the details of what they were discussing. She was obviously briefed by the right wing nut jobs then went on stage and trried to spread their lies. Turd in a wig.
Great, loud liberals run wild now.
Oh what, like we don't have to put up with a bunch of fcking loud A$$ right wingers right now? They've kicking and screaming for 5 years since their man screwed up the country and got voted out. You have fox and friends, we get the View.
the biggest moron on a panel of morons leaves to go to the biggest network of morons on earth. i really wish CNN covered actual news instead of trying to pander to 80 IQ housewives for their clicks.
Good job at making a meaningless, stereotypical comment about women who choose to stay at home. My guess is you haven't been able to find a wife... at least I hope not!
Yes, Fox news, the loser network that beats all the other cable news stations day after day in every demographic. Lol...liberals are always so angry! Chill- we'll keep paying our taxes so you can sit around collecting handouts. No worries.
Smarter people usually are more angry. Dumb people (such as yourself) are ignorant and therefore can live their lives in an ignorant bliss. Enjoy washing the dishes tho.
Good job at making a meaningless, stereotypical comment about liberals...
Jenny McCarthy would be a great breath of fresh air...as would Brooke Shields in the Conservative Christian voice on the show !
yeah go hawks
Ten years too long, she was such a bore.
THANK GOD! I couldn't stand her!
Sorry but she was the most useless one of the bunch though a couple were neck -n- neck with her. Sorry but she was uninteresting and boring and I can only hope they will replace her with someone with personality and maybe some wit and charm. Thank you!
She always seemed so out of place on The View. Intellectually, she was forever dwarfed by everyone else on the programme. She really is something of a dumb broad.
Poor thing needs gravy. A big bowl of gravy !
No surprise she'd go to the one place where she can add her voice to the echo chamber of right wing propaganda that is Fox news. Don't even try to deny it. If Fox was credible Romney would be president right now, and if I were a conservative I'd have ditched Fox News when it became apparent that their political analysts were utterly incompetent.
Amen to that. She will not be missed. Barbara Walters always sticking up for her made me sick.
Here, here! Another idiot is headed to the network for idiots! Perfect match! Perhaps they could replace her with a jar of mayonnaise. (a perfect intellectual equivalent!)
Fox news causes us on the left to have anger management issues. It is almost unbelievable (almost) how stupid their reporting is and how biased they are toward the republicans. Then all the idiot GOP fans come on here and say CNN is Obamas propoganda machine? They critisize Obama all the time on CNN! At least they back up their critisisms with facts, not like Fox who just go for opinion (only from the right) and emotive language to twist things around in pathetic attempts to embarass the left. They have lost all credibility with the centrists and leftists, so they are literally an echo chamber for the right/extreme right.
Watching women, sitting around a table, trying to discuss subjects like learned men is just so...cute.
Elisabeth is eye candy and would be better suited as a Victorias Secret lingerie model than a hostess of a lame talk show.
More like she'd be better suited for a Sears catalog.
Good for her. Btw, "Faux News" is so 2007, please see comrade Obama for a more updated nickname.
No, it's not 2007. It's the truth. Check pack with commander Romney or whoever you idiots have for a role model for more misinformation. I hope your rich cause if your not then your an idiot.
She's much too intelligent to be wasting her time with those left wing snobs and God only knows why she would want the audience the View attracts. Finally making a better choice I would say.
Patrick – Completely agree & could not have said it better.
Alleluia! I can't stand her shrill voice and tiny mind. My dislike of her has nothing to do with her being a conservative. There are plenty of intelligent, articulate conservative women that would be an asset to The View. Mary Matalin, anyone? I am a moderate Democrat who would love to see her join the show!
That crap has been on the air for ten years???
Every time she opens her mouth its like George Bush speaks. Its sickening and drives me crazy.
The View is toast..... it's over.. so many have come and gone.. meredith vieira star and joy was the show... never cared for barbara or elizabeth or rosie... and i'm no long er crazy about sherry... i don'think it will be picked up after this finally season of 2014... I'd like to continute to see whoopi somewhere...
She and "Falin" will make a perfect pair.
Well – The View has lost the only person with any semblance of class and dignity. The rest of those shameless "persons" will just have to get along without her.....If I were a woman, I would feel tremendous shame at what passes for femininity on that show. Without Elizabeth, it may as well be "Animal Farm".....
You are a delusional twit!!!!
Maryanne is right....you REALLY are a delusional twit!
The View is still on? hahaha. Nothing is more informative than a group of hogs with makeup discussing world issues.
ok, sooooo. Faux News would be perfect for her.
Agree, good move for Hasselbeck.
"The View" deserves Jenny McCarthy, another perfect fit.
Funny how liberals can't even handle one opposing viewpoint. Should make for a real interesting show like Air America and all the other successful left wing nut job only shows that do so well commercially.
I bet you believe all the spin at Faux News.
Twalk...And I bet you've never watched the most popular cable news network, Fox News. Fox political shows always have guests who represent both the right and the left. Is that why you hate and feel threatened by Fox news, because they DARE to show both sides of an issue? The hate of Fox news by the left is breathtaking. Grow up and get over it.
It might be because conservatives are always so willing to bite their tongue and never have a bad word to say to those who say things they disagree with. No one has ever heard Rush say a nasty thing about something he disagree's with. No one one has ever heard Hannity say a mean word.... NO NO NO, it is only liberals, and I noticed that your post has such a sweet and accepting tone to it.
ROFLMAO at your RIDICULOUS comment!
It's not that we mind an opposing viewpoint, it's just that you're all so dumb.
I hope the View replace the two or three openings with ones who are quick witted and not quiet in one bit. I hate when they have guest hosts they hardly say or get a voice in the dicussions and questions of guests. Some they have brought on for try outs just sit there the whole show. Not a word is spoken.
Good Riddance! She was he reason I did not watch he show.
Me too! She was the reason I stopped watching. I am really glad she is going.
So glad to hear she's gone! Can't wait for Barbara Walters to do the same!
n i say "GOOD RIDDANCE"! she is the reason i did not enjoy the show. she always sounded like a know-it-all that didn't know anything outside her bubble head. why she thought she was above the rest of us who don't have her warped outlook on society, is beyond me. she comes off as a snobby b%#*@. survior!? please! she couldn't last 24 hours living my life. lol & to just 2 ¢...so? turn channel! while im at it, joy is not the hilarious woman she believes herself to be.she's not!
She is a republycon. What you expect....lol
I thought she was great! She stood up for her opinion in an otherwise uniformly left-leaning, conformist group.
She is a brainless windbag. She'll fit in perfectly on Faux News.
Well, she is moving to the most popular news source in the U.S. by far. CNN & MSNBC are in the tank compared to Fox News. Guess she picked the winner based on where people go for the most trusted news. The ratings of all sources are online if you don't believe it!
u got that right. People go to Faux News for all the spin. Keeps them entertained.
Rudy, don't hit the libs with facts...it's all about feelings and what the rest of the sheep are saying. BTW...what was Obama doing the night his ambassador was killed in Benghazi? Funny how all the sheep refuse to ask such a simple question and demand such a simple answer.
Fox News has a Franchise on all the Right Wing Loons. The other, and I mean the Mainstream Media, have to share ratings. One Station covering all of the Lunatic Fringe, will have greater ratings, than all of those that actually present the News!
Why has the repubikkkan party given up on Benghazi? Cause there is nothing. Why are you still dogging an old story.. Cause you're a loser???
With Fox and higher ratings I think just points out our country is digressing - and we don't have the smartest society.....
Pilot...because of all the other Obama scandals, hard to keep track of all them, huh? Can YOU tell me what Obama was doing the night his ambassador was being killed? Or are you just going to misspell republican again?
FNC also ranks at the top of the charts for news organizations Americans trust the least. 39 percent of respondents say that FNC is the network they trust least compared to 14 percent of Americans who said the same of MSNBC. 13 percent said CNN is the least trusted name in news, and 12 percent said that of Comedy Central.
Just like FAUX news you tell half the story to appease Repugnican Zombies while real Americans laugh at the stupidity of FAUX news on SNL every week. By the way another critic of the stupidity of FAUX news is Jon Stewart who was voted the most trusted newsman in America.....and he isn't even a newsman....says a lot about your polls.
Conservatives fall into to two categories: The Wealthy and The Idiots. Which one are you?
@Deniis, Ah duh, he was obviously in a gang of islamists running through the streerts of Benghazi going to kill his own embassador. Idiot.
@Rudy, Fox muight get the highest ratings, only because MOST people are stupid ignorant gullible fools like yourself. Go back to your echo chamber fool and keep pretending to understand the world.
Certainly no big surprise here. Her body language is easy to read and she served as the only more conservative member of this panel. How does this show stay on the air? All of the women have strong personalities and they made it seem as if they know it all. The content has gone way down over the last two years and the women more strident and less willing to listen to other views.
Too much personal stuff that has nothing to do with the program.
I agree, too much personal stuff! Frankly, I'm tired of Sherri too; the entire show needs an overhaul or needs to be scraped.
Thank God – she only has one "View" and it's narrow and blinded
In other words a perfect match for FAUX news?
She will be a perfect Match for Faux News.
So she was leaving contrary to the denial put out there by BW a few months back.
Good riddance! Go to fox with the rest of those crazy S)&S!!!!!!!!!!11
I knew she wood do that. She hated the President so much and I dont know why. What did he do to her?
Destroyed the country she loves?
the answer is simple. She is a republycon.
Because he is black. That's all most republicans need or want to know about POTUS
I have never seen a woman with that many forhead wrinkles that was under 90 / I suspect it left a lot of loose skin when she had her brain removed......but it did qualify her for FAUX news.
I am so happy that you will be on Fox & Friends.......haven't liked Gretchen for a long time....Good luck, you are too smart for the View.
Maybe "Fox & Friends" is different from the normal Fox News I've seen. Still, I've never understood why anybody would watch a news channel when it's absolutely, positively dishonest in it's presentation and completely, purposefully distorted in it's facts. Unless you want delusion – why even bother pretending it's actually the news? I hear the right-wingers complain about the "lamestream media" but can anybody really look at Fox and defend the ridiculous bias? It's like MSNBC with an even less intellectual viewing audience.
All the White Women are being driven off the show.
Ummmm, does Star Jones ring a bell???
Hasselbeck always gives away her frustration with body language. When she's about to spew out the right-wing sound bite she telegraphs the words with crossed arms, pursed lips, and failure to make eye-contact. She'll have no problem on Faux – where logic isn't required and the truth isn't even a possibility.
Elizabeth – I will certainly follow you to Fox. You stood your ground on many controversial topics and the only one who had any looks. Whoopie Goldberg, Rosie O'Donnell...liberals can have them!
Thank you, We certainly enjoy having Whoopi on our team!
My wife watches this show and on occasion I have seen it so its no big lose that a rightwing nut job would go Faux. Too bad the NSA isn't spying on Murdick so we would know why he married that Chinese commie9alleged).
She and Fox deserve each other. They have the collective IQ of a tater tot...
Ditto that.I never noticed any of 'em were overly bright but that one took half-wit to a whole new level.
FOX NEWS PERFECT FIT
Yep, and Current TV is the perfect fit for Joy Behar
JTip, I think you misspelled Al Jazeera.
Guest- did you mean Al-Waleed bin Talal?
Oh, wait, wrong network.
