Glenn Beck, for one reason or another, agreed to be on The View. While on the program, he was probably supposed to be debating current events with the cast of the show. Instead, they brought up an inconsequential point from his radio program and debated it for a good five plus minutes.
What was the issue of the day that trumped Gitmo, the economy, or the credit card bill? They bickered over Beck’s account of an Amtrak trip the three of them took to D.C. Barbara took aim at his credibility by questioning whether or not he verifies his sources as a journalist. Whoopi being Whoopi wouldn’t let Beck get a word in because she simply doesn’t like his “views”.
Maybe Glenn Beck would have had something of value to say about some of today’s current events, but the cast of The View didn’t want to hear any of it. I’m not a fan of The View, so I don’t know the quality of the program (although I can imagine), but would their viewers rather see the cast team up on a seemingly unsuspecting guest, or see the cast debate the important issues taking place in society?
Here’s the clip from The View:
