‘The View’ is struggling to find a conservative woman who won’t get hostile debating the show’s liberal co-hosts: report

  • Executives at ABC’s “The View” are still seeking a conservative cohost after Meghan McCain’s exit.
  • The network wants a conservative who will tussle with the ladies but not be too confrontational.
  • “They are really looking for a unicorn,” a former “View” staffer told Politico.

Since the departure of Meghan McCain from ABC’s “The View” earlier this year, the oft-raucous panel has lacked a permanent Republican panelist, and several of the cohosts are pushing the network to nix the rotation of guest hosts and select a conservative replacement, according to Politico.

The past few months have featured guest hosting stints by a range of conservative women including former Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice, former Hewlett-Packard chief executive officer Carly Fiorina, former Fox News journalist Gretchen Carlson, political commentator S.E. Cupp, former White House Director of Strategic Communications Alyssa Farah, and former State Department spokesperson Morgan Ortagus.

In August, executive producer Brian Teta told The Wrap that he was “taking a little time” to find the long-running daytime show’s next host.

However, months after McCain’s exit, there has been no resolution on selecting a permanent panelist, and cohosts Joy Behar, Whoopi Goldberg, and Sunny Hostin have reportedly made it known that the continued guest hosting has disrupted the energy of the show.

DAWG SAY: PERSONALLY, I COULD CARE LESS ABOUT THESE SELF-RIGHTEOUS PEOPLE, AND THE SHAM OF A SEARCH FOR A CONSERVATIVE VOICE.
