NewsBusters Podcast: Ana and Alyssa Don't Bring Their 'A Game' to 'The View'

December 22nd, 2023 6:36 PM

As 2023 winds down, it's time to review the best (or the worst) of "The View." NB Associate Editor Nick Fondacaro discusses how Ana Navarro and Alyssa Farah Griffin are alleged to represent a Republican viewpoint, but most of the time, they are just as liberal as the others, and demand the Republicans surrender on social issues like abortion.

These women are nothing like Meghan McCain, who seemed like she would be a liberal Republican when she began. But she strongly dissented from the others on many issues (despite her disdain for Donald Trump), and liberal guests had to be wary of what questions she might bring. On a recent show, Navarro compared her to Hunter Biden in making money off her family if there are no differences?

One of the forthcoming "worst of The View" blogs is about the women having crazy conspiracy theories, like somehow the Republicans planted cocaine in the White House to embarrass the Bidens. This seems to be in conflict -- the Republicans are stupid and inept, but Nick joked somehow they're "ninjas" who slip in to cause trouble for Democrats. We also discuss their loathing of guns and "gun culture."

Nick's birthday is Christmas Eve, so we went out for lunch to celebrate before today's conversation. Enjoy the podcast below, or wherever you listen to podcasts.
