Don't cry for me, Barbara Walters!
Because Tim Hasselback is porking me.....
I caught it the other day. She was giving daggers to everyone on the panel except for Sherri. She looked miserable.
I thought it was rumored that she was going to get canned but someone leaked it to the public?
Although I detest Hasselbitch, I can't say I blame her; without Baba Wawa and Joy, "The View" is headed downhill STAT.
No surprise. She's such a throw back from the 2000s/Bush era.
I blame Rosie for this. If she had never joined The View, their "Hot Topics" segment would still be 10 minutes and consist of topics such as, "What circumstances is it OK to wear white after Labor Day?" And people who still only know Hasselbeck as "that stupid blonde chick from Survivor."
Now Fox & Friends political pundits are a weatherman (Doocy), sport reporter (Kilmeade) and Survivor contestant (Hasslebeck). Not one has any political science background at all. All their wisdom comes form having their heads up Roger Ailes fat ass.
R8 is right. I wish all the lame right wingers would go to Fox so I can avoid them all.

Yes, without the brilliance of Miss America 1989 Gretchen Carlson, their poli-sci bona fides are going straight down the toilet.
Just think Elizabeth Hasslebeck is now the smart one!
So was Wretchen fired?
Goddamn this Hasselbeck. Lands on her feet on that douchebag show. Disgusting.
'douchebag' is such an infantile, adolescent, juvenile term.
You would think an adult could express himself better.
R14 is a douchebag.
I'll bet ol' Gretchen hates her guts!
How long do you think it will be before she tries to upstage Doocey or that other fuck up, Kilmeade?
Bitch can't get along as a team player.
And really, was there ever any doubt where Hasselcunt was going to land?
I wanted Hasselbitch homeless.
Fox has become the network that shelters the cast off conservative douches that other channels no longer wanted.
Bill Hemmer (formerly of CNN)
Glenn Beck (formerly of CNBC)
Lou Dobbs (formerly of CNN)
Greta Van Susteren (formerly of CNN)
Elisabeth Hasslebeck (formerly of ABC)
Wait - Hasselbitch is replacing the blonde bimbo on Fox & Friends? I thought they were just adding her but I suppose this makes more sense.
The one who's there now did actually open her mouth recently about some of the stupid, sexist things her co-workers say. I suppose it was only a matter of time before they canned her ass.
You're missing ME, R18.
How could you?
The sad thing is that the vile shit this network spews is so ephemeral that nobody will remember the damage it has done in twelve years. Nobody will remember FOX & FRIENDS.
Fox will be remembered for The Simpsons and Family Guy.
Gretchen is possibly taking over one of Megyn's hours.
She didn't ditch The View. She was told in March that her contract would not be renewed. She was fired from The View.
Don't forget to tune in today. It's Elizabeth's last day! Yeah!
March 8, 2013 -- The people have spoken. Elisabeth Hasselbeck, one of the five cohorts of ABC's daytime talk show The View, will not be returning to the couch next season, a source tells Us Weekly.
According to the source, the show's resident conservative voice is being ousted after market research revealed that she isn't popular with TV audiences.
"The viewers they polled all said she was too extreme and right wing," the insider tells Us. "People did not watch the show because of Elisabeth. So they told her yesterday (March 7) her contract would not be renewed."
This smells like what happened to Star Jones.
She was fired in April and they gave her two months to find a new job, announce it on The View and then leave.
That is not what Star did, but it sounds like what happened to Elisabeth.
Someone told me that many of the Fox on air personalities don't believe half the shit they say, they just dish out Roger Ailes' talking points. Has anyone else ever heard this?
I haven't heard that r27 but I believe it.
Will she take the earpiece so that Bill Gedde can tell her what to say?
R2, he's fugly, just being a pro-football player doesn't automatically make him a hottie.
Unfortunately, Elisabeth Hasselbeck, who has no business being on the air in any kind of news capacity (The View isn't news, but Fox & Friends is) now has a solid ratings winner and lucrative forum in which to spew her shrill ignorance and lack of journalistic intergrity.
Fox out to be ashamed of itself for giving this know-nothing moron such a prominent on-air role. Very sad.
out = ought
Dlisted said it best:
"Fox News announced today that starting in September, Elisabeth Hasselcrack’s high-pitched screech will break lights and burn off the eyebrows of crew members on the set of Fox & Friends."
Does Babwa have dementia? The last few times I've watched the show she has gotten pissy with the rest of them for no apparent reason, and actually yelled at
Bernadette Peters because she thought she was talking too much. I bet they all wish they had somewhere else to go. It's gonna be a looong year at The View.
I was the first co-host on Fox and Friends... where did I end up?
R26 that is the game-plan ABC told Star to follow.
Instead Star decided to tell the truth, which made both ABC and Babs look bad.
Fast forward 7 years later, they dust off this game-plan and present it to ELisabeth.
Elisabeth brings her EMMY AWARD WINNING talent to Fox
[quote]Does Babwa have dementia? The last few times I've watched the show she has gotten pissy with the rest of them for no apparent reason
She's been awful lately (but fun to watch.)
She says everything three times and interupts and gets annoyed constantly. Joy and Elisabeth just sit there looking like "So what, who cares, I'm out of here soon." Whoopi gets annoyed though. The other day after one of Babs' numerous interruptions she got annoyed and snapped back...."yeah you said that already."
I know what friends are, but what is a FOX?
She deserves to be sandwiched between those two douchebags. Sharing a sofa with those two would be hell on earth.
Well, now SNL can take making fun of Fox & Friends to new heights. With Hasselbitch on the couch, there will be no bigger collection of douchebags on the air than on Fox.
I'm pissed Hasselbitch got a such a high-proficle job. I wanted her to become completely irrelevant as far as on-air personailities go and to disappear into the ether.
From what you're saying, it seems that Baba Wawa has morphed into Emily Latella.
Where is Gilda when we need her?
They should now make it an all Negro show and call it The Black View, since Whoopi and Sherri love to talk about all things black, defend all peole who are black (Sherri said that Mnichael Jackson was found innocent by a jury of his peers) and even remind us that they are black. They kept Hasselbeck on for 10 years??????
Gee, no one saw this coming years ago.
It seems like a good fit for her, and I won't ever have to see her again.
Yes, I saw that R34, and did you see the looks Whoopi Goldberg gave someone off camera afterward?
Amazing how fast that went.
I recorded the show today to see how they'd announce that she was leaving at the end of (actually end of July, I guess, because I think they are on hiatus all August) summer like Joy.
But instead they announced that today was her last day.
It was nice that they all had very touching things to say about each other with both Elizabeth and Barbara nearly coming to tears at points. Whoopi looked really touched too, and Joy looked pleasant, but not close to tears at any point.
But Joy and Elizabeth did have very good things to say about each other and their relationship. In general doesn't strike me as a crier, but we'll see when they do it all again for her last day.
Today [italic]was[/italic] her last day, R47. We hoped she would leave with dignity... and Lis made the right choice.
"Oh my God. I'm back. I'm home. All the time, it was... We finally really did it ... You Maniacs! You blew it up! Ah, damn you! God damn you all to hell!"
We are switching to the new platform for The DataLounge this weekend. All of our mobile users have been using it for over a week and all first time users have been using it for about a month - which adds up to well over one million users. So we're ready to end this phase of the testing and move everybody to the new site. (more)
And yes, we've changed the look and some of how it operates.
Yes, we know you just *hate* it in well in advance.
Yes, we know we suck.
Yes, we are the biggest suckers that ever sucked.
But it was time for a change and with the huge shift to mobile it was long overdue. We've taken this opportunity not only to update the look but also make major changes under the hood (or "bonnet" if you're either British or pretentious or both). And we have to prepare for 2016 - a presidential election year where we can normally expect to see a 60% jump in traffic (yes, we've seen 5 presidential elections so far…Christ we're old).
The site has a bunch - nay, plethora - of new features which will make the site more usable: better search, the ability to ignore posters and threads, see link previews, to pick up a thread where you left off, spam and malware filtering and more.
If you want you can go explore and see for yourself, Click here.
And while running the tests we've noticed two interesting reactions to the new system - people are spending more time on the site and more people that come stay around longer and look at more stuff. Both good things. Yay!
Possibly we've not slain all the dragons and there will be issues that come up during the switchover. There's a help button in the lower right hand corner of the page which you can use to send us bug reports.
Please include as much information about the hardware (PC, Mac, Tablet, Phone etc), operating system (Windows, Mac OS, Android, iOS etc) and browser (Chrome, Safari, Opera, Internet Explorer etc) that you are using as possible to help us replicate and fix the problem.
Please note that complaints about colors, fonts, icons and the like are not "bugs" - they are design choices that we've made and we expect one or two cases of world-class bitching. But they won't actually cause headaches, scurvy, heart attacks, Restless Leg Syndrome, Morgellon's Disease or the vapors (but have your smelling salts at hand just in case).
Talking to DataLounge servers. Please wait a moment...
