Just when you thought it was safe to go back to “The View”…. Just kidding. If, hypothetically speaking, you were considering giving “The View” a shot now that Joy Behar is leaving, don’t expect any tilt even slightly to the right. Word is that Elisabeth Hasselbeck is on the way out as well, with “insiders” saying that viewers find her “too extreme and right wing.”

If this is true, who’s going to create the sparks now that the show is left with straight-down-the-middle moderates Whoopi Goldberg, Barbara Walters and Sherri Shepherd?

Speaking of tolerance, we wonder if these are some of the moderates in the focus group who found Hasselbeck too extreme.
