(Newser) The View’s Elizabeth Hasselbeck fired back at Rev. Jeremiah Wright from her own pulpit yesterday, saying he’s “archaic” and “sexist” for calling her a “dumb broad” during a rant about the media in his Sunday sermon. Haselbeck's liberal co-hosts came to her defense, though some disagreed with her previous depiction of him as a "hatemonger," the Chicago Sun-Times  reports.

As for Rev. Wright's reference to Hasselbeck as a "dizzy blond," she deadpanned, "I'm not a natural blond."
