Elisabeth Hasselbeck too conservative for 'The View? ABC says rumors that she's leaving are false
"The viewers they polled all said she was too extreme and right wing. People did not watch the show because of Elisabeth. So they told her yesterday her contract would not be renewed," a source told Us Weekly.
However, ABC tells Zap2it that the rumors of Hasselbeck's exit are just rumors. "Elisabeth Hasselbeck is a valued member of 'The View' and has a long term contract," says an ABC rep.
Hasselbeck has been part of "The View's" panel for ten years, taking over after Lisa Ling's departure.
