The View

I can honestly say that I have never seen 5 seconds of The View. But I find amusing Barbara Walters' hyprocrisy regarding the Star Jones Reynolds' firing.
Ousted cast member Star Jones Reynolds said Thursday she was told she could "make up a story" about why she was leaving "The View" and her colleagues would have gone along with it. . . .

Longtime ABC newswoman Walters has confirmed the intended deception . . . .

ABC said it canned Reynolds immediately after Tuesday's show because her announcement, and an interview with People magazine, took the network by surprise. Walters told The Associated Press that she felt betrayed and ABC said it couldn't trust Reynolds to tell the truth if she remained on the air.
In other words, because she didn't lie when Walters asked her to, Reynolds couldn't be trusted to tell the truth going forward. Now there is some logic.
