Barabra Walters suggests that ‘The View’ will get another conservative for political balance


MRC’s Scott Whitlock found a newsy tidbit from an April article in Variety magazine. Former Newsweek writer Ramin Setoodeh reported from a Barbara Walters interview that “The View” lost both its edgier political personalities — right-leaning Elisabeth Hasselbeck and leftist insult comedienne Joy Behar — due to network pressure on her and the show’s producer Bill Geddie.

Walters says never-say-never on making an occasional appearance: “I don’t want to say I will never come back,” she said. “If the president came on, depending on the circumstances, I might come back. If Fidel Castro said I will do an interview with you, which he has not in 25 years, I would go off and do it.”
