The pictures above say it all...
Today's show REALLY disgusted me. The continual belittling of Sarah Palin by Joy Behar and Barbara Walters hit a new low. It takes a lot to get me angry enough to write a letter. (BTW...I'm listing all of today's advertisers at the end of this post.)
Here's my letter to The View's producer, Bill Geddie...
I am so disgusted with today's opening segment. You have just lost a viewer for good. I stood by throughout the Rosie O. year and gave you chance after chance to represent all views. All we get is a group of bitter women ganging up on the one conservative view.
I have lost ALL respect for Barbara Walters--I almost bought her book but am so glad I didn't give her one cent of mine. She is condescending and offensive to all conservative viewers.
You would serve your viewers better if you replaced Joy or Sherri with another conservative panelist so Elisabeth isn't always left on her own to stick up for her convictions (which, by the way, probably represent at least half of your audience).
Although I do not always agree with Whoopi, she presents her arguments in a civil and respectful manner. She also doesn't talk down to Elisabeth.
I am going to keep track of all advertisers from today's show and will contact them with my complaints.
