Whoopi Goldberg and Joy Behar angrily charged off the set of "The View" this morning in support of murderous Muslims and their Ground Zero monument.

i've brought this up before, where's the outrage over the lack of any kind of monument to the victims, starting the tenth year in, and no monument, no replacement buildings, the islamic centre, mosque, monument to their victory, whatever you want to call it would sting less if something had been done by now

i think the protesters are blaming the wrong people

I heard that both of them returned to the set a few minutes later. Maybe they went off to get a drink of water.

@H2O MAN,
No big surprise. I don't know how that show stays on the air. There must be way more sexist, racist couch potatoes than I'd like to think there are.

@H2O MAN,
So you comment on things you don't have first hand knowledge of. You should like watching ducks as they quack a lot on H2O, man.

It shows a lack of tolerance for other viewpoints. For a host of a talk show to do this to an invited guest is childish. Someone should tell them that they will meet many people during their lifetimes who have differing opinions. Maybe they should state up front that all the guests have to agree with them.

I agree with Brandon.

As interviewers, they should have calmly asked questions and furthered the discussion so that the guest's viewpoint would be revealed - good or bad. Let's try to get the full story and have the guest explain where they are coming from.

To storm off the set in protest is not "interviewing"

I tried to watch that show a few times, but stopped. I don't find cackling hens entertaining or informative.

I believe that this was exactly what Barbra Walters said the moment they left the stage. I agree it was the wrong thing to leave the stage. It send the wrong message. Bill O'Reilly's venom needed to be addressed, not disengaged. It was a poor example of intellectual exchange.

I think my problem with the view is how the show is evolving. It seems that the show has earned a reputation for controversy. I think at this point, it is less about hearing differing opinions from a female vantage, and more about stirring the pot. I think this kind of shouting and stomping out is encouraged by viewers. It's sensationalist and exciting.

Barbara's immediate words where directly to the camera "this is exactly what is not supposed to happen here." I believe she is the execute producer, and the show was her idea. I feel bad that this is where it has gone. I think it was a great idea and has had some really great moments.

All that aside. O'Reilly was ******* lunatic on the show.

A major spokesman for the right is a round the clock lunatic. When did you decide to leave the warm comforts he has provided you, h2oman?

What's telling is that 100% of the major spokespeople for the left are round the clock lunatics.

@failures art,
Their getting up and walking off the set was completely uncalled for. O'Reilly was being his usual arrogant self ("Listen to me, and maybe you'll learn something"), and heaping blame on all Muslims for 9/11, but they should have stayed put and told him what they thought of his opinions, or simply expressed their own. It is Walters show, and I suspect she was livid and read them the riot act after the show was over.

Ever since they had Rosie O'Donnell as a member of the group, it seems it has been more about stirring the pot politically, and generating controversy by having the hosts taking opposing sides, rather than simply a group of women of different ages and backgrounds sharing general viewpoints. Most of the time I find the show rather dull now.

Why the rest of the media made such a big deal of the "walkout" I really can't fathom. Does anyone really care that much what goes on on "The View"? Behar and Goldberg behaved badly, but it wasn't exactly earth shattering news.

I have watched that show maybe two times, one time I watched a little of it in snatches on cable news when they showed Whoopie all hopped on something, not sure what it was. For the most part all of em' has always got on my nerves except Walters. Like somebody said, it was a good idea but they got the wrong kind of people on both sides.

Whoopi probably left because she knows she can't carry on a coherent argument. She has lost it somewhere or another.

They walked off the show because it is what they do and it garners publicity and ratings.

It was utterly unprofessional for a journalist, but Christ, they're not journalists, they are a new breed - Opinion-Entertainers.

O'Reilly is an Opinion-Entertainer, although he's several notches above the clowns on The View in terms of seriousness.

How anyone can watch their utterly predictible and vacuous show is beyond me. Barbara Walters, at least attempted (with great failure) to be a journalist.

Ditto O'Reilly - But I will watch his show whenever I know Bernie Goldberg or Dennis Miller will be on.

At the bottom of the barrel is Joy Beher, because she actually thinks she is righteously correct - much like her idiot in kind Rosie O'Donnel.
