The View on political muckraking
Please tell me that no one of significance watches this show? I think I can rest easy if I know that the MadTV spoof of the four women as hens clucking and pecking away was more true than not. I don’t want to demonize Elisabeth Hasselbeck, but my gods this woman is dense in the following clip, seen at Queerty. But from the look of the way the other three treat her, I don’t think they’re helping either.
For the most part, I ignore daytime television since I gave up on my soap operas back in college. When I take a day off or have a sick day, I’m usually dumbstruck by the stuff that’s aired and quickly switch over to saved shows on the DVR or the latest Netflix disc. Most everyone I know and chat with works during the day as well, so they don’t watch this either, but towards which demographic is this aimed?
It’s nice to see them tackling a relevant topic, but when you’ve got one conservative, two clear liberals and one host trying to remain objective, it seems like politics shouldn’t be on the agenda because all it comes across as is an agenda. I respect Whoopi for at least trying to let Hasselbeck say her piece, but it’s like her prep sheet was written by Hannity.
