Elisabeth Hasselbeck to leave 'The View' for 'Fox & Friends'


 

“The View” co-host Elisabeth Hasselbeck will be joining Fox News Channel in September to co-host the top-rated morning show “Fox & Friends.”

Hasselbeck will be replacing current co-host Gretchen Carlson, who will begin anchoring her own daytime show in the fall.

“Elisabeth’s warm and engaging personality made her a star on The View,” Fox News Chairman and CEO Roger Ailes said in a statement Tuesday. “She has proven to be an excellent conversationalist and I am certain she will make a great addition to our already successful morning franchise.”

Hasselbeck, who has co-hosted the Emmy award–winning “The View” on ABC since 2003, said in a statement she feels it is an “honor” to call Fox News Channel her new television home.

“We have had ten wonderful years with Elisabeth and she will now be swimming in new waters,” Hasselbeck’s current co-host Barbara Walters said. “We will miss her and wish her everything good.”

Hasselbeck, an outspoken conservative, often clashed with her more liberal co-hosts during her 10-year stint on “The View.”

She was a keynote speaker at the Republican National Convention in both 2004 and 2008, and has interviewed Presidents Bush, Clinton and Obama during her career.

Reports emerged in March Hasselbeck would be leaving the show but ABC at the time said Hasselbeck was under a long-term contract.

“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,'' ABC said in the statement according to Reuters.

Hasselbeck will join current co-hosts Steve Doocy and Brian Kilmeade on “Fox & Friends.”

Scientific studies prove that everyone agrees - men, women, conservatives, liberals - that conservative women are hotter than liberals.

And even liberals agree Fox News has the hottest female anchors. 

And I say... DUH!

It's sad to me that Fox News is about the only venue where various political viewpoints among hosts and contributors are tolerated and even sought.

She'll fit right in..


Here are five examples of Hasselbeck’s right-wing views:

1. Morning-after pill is like abandoning a baby in the street. It’s no secret Hasselbeck is against abortion, arguing women only get them for “superficial reasons.” In 2006, she argued that emergency contraception is “the same thing as birthing a baby and leaving it out in the street!”

2. Older lesbian women just couldn’t get a man. Her theory on why lesbians come out later in life is that older men prefer young women, “leaving older women with no one.”

3. Stalking victim’s outfit was too slutty. Hasselbeck joked that Dancing With the Stars contestant Erin Andrews’ outfit was too skimpy for the stalking victim who was filmed nude in her hotel room. “In light of what happened and as a legal [matter] [...] I mean, in some way if I’m him, I’m like, ‘Man! I just could’ve waited 12 weeks and seen this — a little bit less — without the prison time!’” Hasselbeck later said she regretted the comments and gave a tearful apology on-air.

4. Waterboarding isn’t torture. Hasselbeck suggested that the military requires waterboarding and it was used effectively post-9/11 to gain intelligence information. “I’m not saying hey everyone should go next door to be waterboarded,” she said. But she maintained a distinction from torture: “Torture is wrong, but enhanced interrogation techniques is different.” A large majority of Americans disagree.

5. Feminists only “burn their bras” for liberals. In a debate over Rush Limbaugh’s misogynist attacks, Hasselbeck took issue with feminists who do not stand up for conservative women. However, in making her point, she invoked the “bra-burning” stereotype about feminists. “The sisters that you speak of… my question for them is why they are so selective in their feminism, why aren’t they burning their bras when a conservative women is attacked,” she said.
