Rosie fans launch petition to fire Elisabeth Hasselbeck
Sadly, the petitioners seem to be calling for Elisabeth's removal because of her political views. The website says, "While the purpose of The View is for different views to be expressed, each co-host should be able to express their views without being attacked by a closed-minded co-host who blindly refuses to listen to facts and uses the show to angrily spout propaganda." I highlighted the end of that quote because, I think, it proves that the petitioners simply think that Elisabeth's opinion is wrong. It's an opinion and, whether you agree with her or not, many people share her views.
Of course, this is television we're talking about. So the "we don't like you very much" argument tends to be very powerful.
