Moments ago "The View" co-host Rosie O'Donnell found a golden opportunity to resurrect her conspiracy theories on the collapse of World Trade Center Tower 7 (WTC 7) as her fellow co-hosts were discussing Rudy Giuliani's presidential campaign. Co-host Joy Behar faulted Giuliani for keeping the NYC emergency command center in the World Trade Center complex. That's when O'Donnell noted that the command center was in WTC 7. This time around, however, token non-liberal Elisabeth Hasselbeck pushed back on Rosie's loopy conspiracy theories.

Stay tuned to NB for more.

Justin McCarthy is working on the transcript. We've been having problems with some of our video today, but we hope to have video of the exchange up later.

Update/Other blog coverage (13:30 EDT):

Ian at HotAir is also covering this development, with video. He adds a link to Popular Mechanics which, of course, has more expertise in stuff like metalworking and engineering than O'Donnell.
