Rosie O'Donnell only has 3 weeks remaining in her contract with ABC's "The View". ABC needs to take a stand against her bullying ways and fire her immediatley. After her conduct on the show this week, it is evident that she should no longer be welcome into our living rooms any longer. Her debate with Elisabeth Hasselbeck was outrageous. She didn't answer any questions and constantly verbally abused Hasselbeck throughout the "warm chatter", opening segment of the program. Hasselbeck was not alowed to defend her point of view; she was barely allowed to speak. I don't know how Hasselbeck was able to sit through the rest of the show.
Hasselbeck has been on the View for several years. Rosie started less than 8 months ago. ABC owes a bit more loyalty to the long time employ. If someone at my workplace treated me the way that Rosie treated Hasselbeck, they would be written up or terminated. The same standards should apply to people that work in the TV industry.
Rosie is a bully. She believes herself to be an authority on EVERYTHING. She looks down her nose at the rest of the world, and uses the "gay label" the way that some minorities use the "race card". She wouldn't even defend her statements because she was afraid that she would be labeled as a "loud, fat, lesbian" by the media. Don't start an argument and then refuse to defend it by using the "gay card" defense.
I believe that Hasselbeck should file a complaint- the same way that I would if I were being abused in my workplace. ABC should follow up on the complaint and either terminate or suspend Rosie.
Rosie used to be funny. I enjoyed her stand-up routines. Now she's all about controversy-- anything to grab the media spotlight. I'm tired of it and hope that she moves on into oblivion soon. Go back to comedy, host the "Price is Right" , get a sitcom. Just don't move on to another talk show that becomes another soapbox. We might care about your opnion if you had a better delivery. But, as of today-- I don't really care what you think about anything.
