says Elisabeth Hasselbeck
is staying on "The View
." Walters said false reports that the show's lone conservative was leaving began circulating after Joy Behar
announced exit plans last week. But on Monday, Walters pointedly denied them. "There is a particularly false story that keeps getting picked up about Elisabeth's alleged departure, saying that we don't approve of her conservative views," Walters said. "The truth is we love Elisabeth. I like her personally, and she's just a wonderful person," she continued. But beyond that, we value and appreciate her point of view.
