(Newser) The View might have one more open seat: US Weekly reports that co-host Elisabeth Hasselbeck is getting fired after nine years because viewers are put off by her conservative views. The report follows Joy Behar's decision to leave after nearly 17 years.

"She has been on the show for nearly ten years with no apparent fuss." Click for more. (Read more The View stories.)
