Anyone who tunes into “The View” expecting to receive anything even remotely close to news (or accurate news) would be dissapointed.
They've proven time and again that they don’t even get basic facts correct.
Most haven’t forgotten how Whoopi Goldberg claimed “Dr” Jill Biden would be a fantastic surgeon general just two years ago? Whoopi Goldberg said, “She’s an amazing doctor.”
Jill Biden’s doctorate is in education.
“The View” recently lied regarding the Turning Point USA event in Tampa which had Neo-Nazis show up nearby.
Even although Turning Point formally denounced the Neo-Nazi group, “The View” continued to spread lies. Joy Behar claimed that the Nazis were at the venue and Florida Governor Ron DeSantis “did nothing,” however, he wasn't present at the time of the event. He was there the previous day. And then Whoopi Goldberg stated, even though Turning Point denounced the Nazi group, “But you let them in, and you knew what they were.” This was a lie. They were not admitted to the event, and they never even tried to get inside. The group protested the event on the street outside. Goldberg later said that the statement she made could be described as “metaphorical” but still insisted that Turning Point was somehow embracing the Nazi group.
At this point, Turning Point has had enough. They issued a cease-and-desist order for ABC this week, requesting that they “retract the defamatory statements” that were made on the show and issue an apology or risk legal actions.
“The false statements of fact intentionally made during The View’s July 25th segment were unquestionably harmful to TPUSA’s reputation and brought the organization and its student affiliates into disrepute with the public, potential donors, and current and future business partners, posing a significant financial loss to the organization,” the letter said.
Fox News Digital has obtained the letter, addressed to ABC News New York bureau chief Joshua Hoyos and ABC assistant chief counsel Ian Rosenberg, which accuses “The View” of making “false, derogatory, and defamatory statements” about its recent Student Action Summit. [….]
“The View hosts intentionally and falsely associated TPUSA with neo-Nazi protestors outside the event placing TPUSA in denigrating and false light and negatively impacting its public perception. Such action will not be tolerated,” the letter said.
“Specifically, The View hosts insidiously and cavalierly stated that TPUSA ‘let [neo-Nazis] in’ to its SAS event, metaphorically ‘embrase[d] them’ and that neo-Nazis were ‘in the mix of people.’ The assertion that TPUSA is complicit or affiliated in any way with the neo-Nazi protesters outside the event is outlandish, false, defamatory, and disgraceful,” the letter continued. “Even after Ms. Haines reluctantly read the TPUSA statement that it condemns the group of neo-Nazis and that the group had nothing to do with TPUSA, its event, or its student attendees, Ms. Goldberg continues the false tirade against TPUSA, asserting that somehow the organization and its attendees were ‘complicit’ and/or associated with the outside protest.”
Peterson then added, “To be abundantly clear, TPUSA aggressively and completely condemns the ideologies of neo-Nazism and has zero connection to the protestors outside the event. Since these individuals were located on public property, TPUSA security attempted to, but was not permitted to remove them.”
If they fail to comply with Turning Point's guidelines, the letter stated they'd take advantage of “all available legal remedies” to pursue “damages.”
Thus “The View” might want to begin complying since Turning Point isn't going to give them any room to slack. They should be accountable for their omissions.
