‘The View’ Makes ‘Derogatory Statements’ On TV, Then Apologizes

The View’s Whoopi Goldberg and Joy Behar were in hot water after their ABC program was threatened with legal action over statements they made on live TV.

In fact, they were accused of making “derogatory” statements, and that’s when they were forced to make an apology. However, there was one big problem with the retraction.

“They were out there in the front of the conference” Joy Behar said. “It’s the same thing, right out of that same playbook.” She then said that Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis “did nothing,” but she failed to mention that the governor attended the event the day before they appeared, Fox News reported.

“You’ll note that Behar does not point out the fairly relevant fact that they were protesting against TPUSA,” Breitbart reported.

Later on the program, The View read an on-air disclaimer to inform viewers that the protestors were outside the event and had “nothing to do” with TPUSA.

It’s one thing to make an honest mistake, however, when you have a duty to millions of viewers it’s important to distinguish between facts and opinions. Everyone has a right to an opinion, but it becomes a serious situation when making allegations about people or organizations to millions of viewers, before finding out the truth.
