Meghan McCain Announces Departure from THE VIEW, Condemns Media
By Movieguide® Staff
Meghan McCain, the lone conservative co-host on the left-leaning ABC show THE VIEW, blasted the media and announced her departure from the talk show after four years.
McCain encouraged the media to “do better” and felt that most outlets covered the show with “deep misogyny and sexism.”
“My final note to the world watching … The media needs to do a better job of covering the women on this show,” McCain said. “We are covered with deep misogyny and sexism by the media. If five men were doing what we do every day, I really do believe that we’d probably have a Pulitzer Prize.”
“It’s always reduced to really reductive coverage,” she added. “I implore the media to do better as they cover the rest of you going forward.”
While McCain’s conservative viewpoints often resulted in heated discussions with her liberal co-hosts, Whoopi Goldberg offered words of encouragement.
“Everything possible has been fired at you, so when you leave here, you’re a better person, better woman, better mother, better friend,” Goldberg said. “And so, we’ve got a month together. Let’s make the most of it.”
Fox News reported:
McCain said her decision to leave was difficult, but she had enjoyed settling down in Washington, D.C., with her husband and daughter since the coronavirus pandemic and didn’t want to upend her life again for the New York-based program.
