(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. Neither ABC nor Hasselbeck has confirmed the news, though TVNewser has two sources also saying that Hasselbeck won't be back next season. "If Hasselbeck's conservatism is a problem with audiences, it would appear to be a relatively new one," notes the Huffington Post. "She has been on the show for nearly ten years with no apparent fuss." Click for more.
