After failing to locate a permanent Republican co-host to replace Meghan McCain, the liberal ABC daytime show “The View” was mocked online. It turns out that few individuals want to appear on a one-sided show that makes open and honest debate difficult.
Before taking off for the holidays, the ladies of the View said they're tired of the rotating cast of republican women but the show can't find its conservative "unicorn" https://t.co/98J9mhZJkG— Tara Palmeri (@tarapalmeri) December 27, 2021
According to Politico, the current standing co-hosts have expressed their dissatisfaction with the seemingly endless rotating door of guest co-hosts since McCain’s departure in the summer, and have put more pressure on executive producer Brian Teta to find a permanent replacement.
According to the site, the show will continue to audition possible presenters and will bring back certain prior guest hosts, such as Alyssa Farah, but will also welcome others, such as Bari Weiss and Lisa Ling, who aren’t widely regarded as true conservatives.
Previous complaints from a group of former conservative co-hosts, including McCain, that they were pressured by other co-hosts and ABC management were addressed in the study, and it was observed that such a perception didn’t help the search.
Maybe they should have *two*, which might make the cast more stable and also more balanced. Turning one woman into an isolated piñata certainly doesn't work for recruitment. https://t.co/3WT7ysYCE9— Ed Morrissey (@EdMorrissey) December 27, 2021
Oh, please. Just admit you want a show of liberals for liberals. It would be best for all of us if people could just be truthful. https://t.co/96TLld7LFO— Karol Markowicz (@karol) December 27, 2021
