The women on ABC's "The View" continue to keep the air charged with anti-Barack sentiment. A few of the hosts on the view have called him "Osama" several times each (pretending that it's actually a difficult name to pronounce). The best they seem to be able to suggest is that Obama just fall in line and become HRC's VP. Flagging the "experience" issue, and other assorted cliches. They never come out and say that they all just happen to be HRC supporters, but...they all are, and there's no semblence of balance.
As a fellow Obama supporter recently said:
These Osama references are disrespectful to a U.S. Senator, a presidential candidate, and the victims of 9/11.
Please contact The View and ask them to stick to celebrity interviews...something they're actually good at. Either that, or just be honest, ladies, and turn the title of the show into "This Day in Hillary History".
UPDATE, 2/16/08: Better yet...contact ABC itself...
UPDATE, 2/26/08: The View's biased coverage has continued...they said yesterday that Obama has "sponsored no bills in the senate" Wow! In addition to contacting ABC, please contact Cambell's Soup, one of The View's largest sponsors, and complain. If you'd rather call, their number is 800-257-8443.
UPDATE, 2/28/08: Whoopie reports that she didn't watch the most recent debate, yet she seems to feel herself qualified to influence millions of viewers. Please tell The View to GO BACK TO CELEBRITY COVERAGE --- they are not qualified to talk politics!
