LoL @ those "mean" tweets Sara read in the intern segment. Did they not let her read actual mean ones.

They weren't read as "mean' tweets, but Sara was reading the "flak" the journalist was getting, and the language and tone were really off putting.

Ok, she didn't say mean but she did say hate and attack. I don't view pointing out someone's privilege as an attack. If the info I read about the her is correct - she has stated that her grandfather paid for her schooling.

There were plenty of not rude comments in her post.

Was I the only one who thought Whoopi was confusing internships with apprenticeships?  

I don't know.  There are some differences, I suppose for some industries, there are apprenticeships, which is getting training in the field, and internships is learning about the field. But it's not either or, and they can blur. Like Journalism for example, the internship wasn't just learning, but I also got training.

But I suppose for Whoopi's field--acting, hers would have been an apprenticeship.

It pissed me off that the  hosts were discussing the Dr Seuss books as if they were banned.  That didn't happen.

What actually happened was that, after realization that there were some racist depictions, dr seuss books are not being included in the "read across America" reading incentive program. And, the company that publishes the books (Seuss Enterprises)  decided to stop publishing the 6 books that had objectionable content.

Nobody is banning, nobody is censoring. Its like the muppets topic from last week, and the potato head story. It's overblown into a story that has a grain of truth, but a gross misrepresentation of reality.

That's what The View does.  The jewel in the crown of ABC News obfuscates, muddles, misinforms and disinforms all the time.  These five intrepid journalists and their apprentice journalist Greta Monaghan always deliver.

This is a subject that comes up annually on Geisel's birthday.  It's Seuss Enterprises that decided to quit publication.  They have the right to do whatever they want with the material.  Tink is right, there is no banning or censoring involved.

With the preview of today's show I realized I do know who the Williams twins are.  We've all seen that video of them listening to Phil Collins.

I wonder if they still use that three am guy. The View employee who's  job it was to gather the hot topics for the day.  When they discuss a topic like the Dr Seuss books they seem to fall for the click bait headlines without actually reading the story. Since they fall under the ABC News umbrella shouldn't they have to at the very least make sure what they say is true?

Seriously. And I apologize if my comments added to the misinformation. But everyone is jumping on the same bandwagon--Colbert, some guy at the Washington Post. What I've heard and read seems and sounds like they're for erasing what is part of our history because it was a shameful part. I think that's wrong. The good, bad, and ugly should be there--as Joy said--it's a teachable moment; not something that would make it acceptable.

I know this is a bad example, but for the Golden Collection of the Loony Tunes, Whoopi was shown to introduce some of the shorts, and she explained how some of the shorts were racist, but made during a period of time, when that's how things were done, or something like that. (it's early, I'm cranky because I'm hitting brick wall after brick wall on a personal matter). So the...disclaimer is there. I'm not a fan of those and yep, I skip them. But I love and adore Bugs Bunny and so I have them and I watch them!

And I don't know about the thing with Mr. Potato Head except that Hasbro has decided to make him gender neutral? All I remember from my childhood that there was a Mr. Potato Head and a Mrs. Potato Head! But Hasbro is a private company, just like the Seuss estate and can do what they want.

I get what Sunny is saying, but I won't be taking a vaccine from Johnson & Johnson. Their history with women, especially women of colour, and how they treated people seeking justice against them just turned me off from them.....

Granted, I'm in an age group that is low on the list of getting the vaccine so by the time it reaches me there will be more options.

It was interesting that Meghan did not get to comment on that topic - Whoopi went to commercial in the middle of the that discussion and then, they jumped right into Taylor Swift tweeting about a Netflix show.  

I would have much rather heard Meghan's opinions on Texas reopening/no mask mandate than on slut-shaming in a movie because of a tweet from a popstar.

Methinks the lady doth protest too much!!  

Whoopi cut to commercial when she was snapping back at Sara - I think Meghan thought that Sara was calling her a slut for dating a lot of guys.  Just makes you wonder if there may have been a situation like this in her past.

With the Taylor topic, I thought the joke was an old one especially since Taylor had been with one person for awhile now. However, I don't know if Meghan mentioning Britney made sense here. Despite how Taylor is now, she made it her brand to talk about her relationships. Leaving easter eggs and what not for fans do they can speculate. It was great PR and got her name everywhere.

She has calmed down since then, which is why it's a dumb joke, but it isn't really a case of the media hounding her about her relationships.

Before she became a pearl clutcher Meghan used to be all about sex. Saying she was strictly dickly.  She wrote a book with the word sex in the title.  She has previously talked about dating a lot of men.  So if she is saying dating means sex then yeah she slept with a lot of men.

McCain clearly got a paddling from ABC for adding to the mistrust of doctors in the middle of a pandemic when they most need to be listened to for people’s welfare; I didn’t think that until her first day back she decided to remind us what a VICTIM she is. They didn’t even finish letting everyone speak on the topic about Mississippi and Texas, because talking about Taylor Swift and setting up McCain's whining was much more important somehow. McCain’s constant screaming and making everything personal with every one of her co-hosts and treating this show like the Real Housewives has *nothing at all* to do with the media reporting on her as “screaming,” “causing catfights,” etc. Of course, there is sexism, but I don’t think it applies to McCain. You can’t really blame the media when they’re merely reporting you as you are.

Oh, and I don't think Joy would have a dinner party with her if she was the last person on Earth, lol.

I really like Sara's hair today.  Used to wear it like that a lot in HS. No shade, i like it, just can't do it lol. I think the stylist's are figuring since she can only be seen mid to chest up, pile everything they can into that area.

I’m surprised that Meghan even acknowledges micro-aggressions since her team is usually dismissive of the term. Of course it’s only because Meghan is a woman and sexism personally affects her.

*Typical Twatty, getting that wrong.

Now it's her "reporting" that some cabbie in Florida won't get the vaccine because "nothing will change" and how the fuck does he know that? Everyone, and I don't just mean Dr. Fauci; But Drs. Gupta (both Vin and Sanjay), and Jha, have said, that wearing a mask and maintaining social distance would still be mandatory until at least 75% of the country is vaccinated, you dumb, nimrodic, ignoranamus of a Maroon!

I just adore Joy and what she said she was gonna do for her dinner party!

I just 😅😝at Twatty trying to fillet Secretary Granholm. Like Twatty has any idea what coal miners think or feel aside from whatever sound bytes she's seen.

And Sara? Not all ear worms are songs you don't like. Because now I've got both Olivia Newton-John's version AND Dolly's version of Jolene in my ear!!!😅

I haven't seen The View today, but Taylor Swift and her fans are getting the whole thing wrong.   The quote was from the Netflix series "Ginny and Georgia", and part of it is about a group of girls who rag on each other all the time, as girls do.   They jokingly call each other out for all kinds of things, in a playful, pretend "Mean girl"  way.  So, one teenage girl telling another that she goes through men faster than Taylor swift - it's called a BURN.  It's a character delivering a cheap insult to another character, 2 friends, one making fun of another who falls in love too easily.   It wasn't a punchline, it was one line in a series of exchanging insults, trying to top each other, for the amusement of the group of girls.  They make fun of each others' taste in music, tv shows, movies, etc.   It makes some good points, about how a popular girl can influence everyone else's opinion by one causal remark.  

I think it's kind of silly to over-interpret one line from a tv show, especially taken out of context.  (It's actually a pretty decent show)

I live in a coal state and let me tell you all they are interested in is having a job that pays well and let's them take car of their families.  Meghan thinks of them as a stereotype.  I'm sure most of them would love to have a job that isn't underground breathing in coal dust.  And I hate to break to it Meghan but coal jobs are going to continue to disappear even if they don't want to.  More and more power plants are switching to nuclear from coal.

It's because of that cabbie in Florida that nothing will change. Yet. As  you said once more and more people get vaccinated then yes slowly things will start to change. In my county the number of positive cases have dropped considerably since more people are being vaccinated.
