TV Guide Celebrates Joy Behar and Her '16 Seasons of Fabulous Sass'

TV Guide magazine celebrated Joy Behar’s grating career on The View (and not Elisabeth Hasselbeck’s) with a Behar interview by Michael Logan which began: “So what? Who cares? We do! On August 9, Joy Behar checks out of ABC’s The View after 16 seasons of fabulous sass and unapologetically leftist commentary.”

Logan wanted Joy's take on her most "memorable moments," like savaging John McCain in 2008:

“He was running an attack ad against Obama that was an outright lie, and I called him on it,” she claimed. “Frank Rich wrote in The New York Times that I was the new Edward R. Murrow because I was the only who had the nerve to use the L-word.”

When Rosie O’Donnell bizarrely yelled at Hasselbeck because she refused to defend O’Donnell’s remarks insisting that Americans were terrorists? “It was brutal sitting in the crosshairs,” Behar said, “But someone in the booth sure like it, because they would not go to a commercial. I was like, ‘What the hell is this, PBS?’”

When O’Reilly said “Muslims killed us on 9/11,” Behar and Whoopi Goldberg walked off the set. They couldn’t handle the truth. This statement was somehow a lie.  “My body just got out of that chair by itself. That’s never happened before or since, and trust me, a lot of people spew bulls–t on The View.”
