In February, the Media Research Center announced a campaign to hold ABC’s advertisers accountable for the anti-Christian bigotry spewed on The View. There, the show’s co-hosts smeared Christians as “dangerous” and “mentally ill.” But The View’s history of bashing people of faith didn’t start in 2018.
VH1 premiered its new scripted series Daytime Divas on Monday, June 6, with lots of drama, catfighting, and controversy. The show is based on the book Satan’s Sisters by Star Jones, former co-host of The View, and follows the lives of female daytime talk TV hosts of The Lunch Hour and their behind-the-scenes interactions.
One of the most controversial remarks made by Hillary Clinton -- a 2016 Democratic presidential candidate -- during her interview with MSNBC anchor Rachel Maddow on Friday night came when the party's frontrunner quoted “a number of surveys” that claimed “overall, veterans who get treated” in Veterans Administration facilities “are satisfied with their treatment.”
That remark drew a challenge from retired U.S. Marine Brandon Coleman, who on Monday told Elisabeth Hasselbeck -- one of the hosts of the weekday morning Fox & Friends program -- that he was prepared to give Clinton a tour of the Phoenix VA facility “whenever she wants to do it, unannounced.”
Earlier this week, Fox & Friends co-host Elisabeth Hasselbeck asked: “Why has the Black Lives Matter movement not been classified yet as a hate group? I mean, how much more has to go in this direction before someone actually labels it as such?”
On Thursday, representatives of that organization issued a statement that instead referred to Black Lives Matter as “a love group” and criticized Hasselbeck for “sensationalizing tragedy” to further her own agenda.
During Monday morning's edition of the Fox & Friends program, co-host Elisabeth Hasselbeck asked black guest Kevin Jackson: “Why has the Black Lives Matter movement not been classified yet as a hate group?”
The segment drew a tremendous negative online response, with one of the most unusual coming from Hasselbeck's former co-host on The View ABC program, who tweeted that “some r slow 2 wake.”
Fox & Friends host Elisabeth Hasselbeck got some passionate support from an old friend for a recent question she asked that turned into a Twitter frenzy. On Monday morning, Hasselbeck asked a former NYPD officer if it were possible that Sandra Bland could’ve used her lit cigarette as a weapon against her arresting officer.
Twitter went crazy, with many calling Hasselbeck a racist for asking such a question. Her former colleague at The View, Whoopi Goldberg, wasn’t having any of that on Wednesday – she shut down the Twitter haters:
On his The Nightly Show on Comedy Central, in the aftermath of the Charleston church massacre, host Larry Wilmore tried to deceive his audience into believing that Fox News hosts as well as former Senator Rick Santorum had been clinging to the possibility that the Charleston church massacre was motivated by religion, even after reporting surfaced that the gunman had expressed blatantly racist motivations during the rampage.
In the case of Santorum, Wilmore's staff even reversed the order of some of the Republican presidential candidate's words from an interview to make it sound like he had suggested the massacre could not have been motivated by anything other than "assaults on religious liberty."
Fox News Channel's Elisabeth Hasselbeck interviewed Pastor Rit Varriale on Tuesday's Fox and Friends over his church's decision to fly a Christian flag over the American flag. Hasselbeck noted how "the move is sparking an outrage on social media," and wondered it was "a fight for faith, or a slam to Old Glory."
In a shocker, New York Times TV critic Alessandra Stanley panned "The View" and new "conservative" co-host Nicolle Wallace.
Stanley found she missed Elisabeth Hasselbeck – “opinionated, emotional, and easily drawn into ideological spats – and dismissed Nicolle Wallace, who “didn’t say a word when Ms. Perez joked about Mitt Romney having a vagina.”
Elisabeth Hasselbeck’s vacation was ruined by the news that her anti-American on-air foe would be returning to the set of The View. On the July 9 edition of Fox & Friends, Steve Doocy, Anna Kooiman, and Brian Kilmeade called the Fox host and former View moderator to comment on the news that Rosie O’Donnell would be resuming her radical left wing rhetoric on the ABC talk show.
Hasselbeck responded, “what could ruin a vacation more than to hear news like this” before expressing her dismay that “the very woman who [has] been in the face of our military, been in the face of her own network and really in the face of a person who stood by her and had civilized debates for the time that she was there” would be returning as a moderator.

On Monday, May 12, FNC's Fox and Friends exposed Democratic hypocrisy in accusing Republicans of trying to raise money off the deaths of Americans from the Benghazi attack, when Democrats themselves have a history of linking fundraising to deadly events.
Referring to Republican Rep. Trey Gowdy explaining this hypocrisy on the previous day's Fox News Sunday, FNC co-host Elisabeth Hasselbeck began listing the history of Democrats:
