Whoopi Goldberg: Elisabeth Hasselbeck Gets the Most Death Threats

Which "View" co-host receives, on average, the most death threats? Whoopi Goldberg and Sherri Shepherd coming from racially motivated individuals? Nope. Joy Behar coming from those evil right wingers? Nope. The correct answer is right-of-center co-host Elisabeth Hasselbeck. This bombshell comes not from some anonymous "View" staffer, or Hasselbeck herself, but liberal co-host Whoopi Goldberg.

"The New York Post" reports that Goldberg, participating in a panel discussion, made such a revelation. "The View" moderator also spoke positive about Hasselbeck despite their political differences: "Politically we could not be more opposite, but I respect her tremendously."

As the main stream media obsesses over alleged conservative hate, they seem disinterested in the hateful rhetoric from the left, as exemplified with Ms. Hasselbeck’s threat. ABC’s Terry Moran went as far to suggest that Sarah Palin’s rhetoric may endanger Barack Obama’s life. Are there any concerns out there about Elisabeth Hasselbeck’s life?
