Elizabeth Hasselbach Baits Rosie Into Saying It: WTC 7 Collapse Due To Government Conspiracy
— Ace

Nice work, Elizabeth. You got her to say it. You also got this moron to promise to invite scientists on to the show to discuss her lunacy.

Rosie actually says she "doesn't know" who destroyed WTC 7. She's just sure it wasn't due to the 9/11 attacks. Given that no one else had access to the building except for Americans, obviously a "controlled demolition" can only have been conducted by the US Government.

As Allah says, the great fat lunatic -- pretty much the Kathy Bates character from Misery except unencumbered by a passion for reading -- has virtually demanded that Barbra Walters fire her.

And Jack Cafferty, of course, joins in with the conspiracy-talk, becoming the "male Rosie."

Not sure about that. Rosie's got bigger testicles than Jack Cafferty.

Rosie or Elizabeth? The fact that Rosie's "interesting theory" hasn't been aired on the show previously suggests that Barbara Walters laid down the law that Rosie's 9/11 Truthiness was not to be brought up by anyone.

So it might be that Elizabeth was the one who broke Walters' embargo on the subject, and got Rosie to admit what she believes.

Ah, well. The girl's built up an awful lot of goodwill dealing with these disgusting old yentas. She'll fail upwards. It will be delicious if Walters' fires Elizabeth for exposing Rosie's insanities.

Rosie's promised it -- so let's have it. Let's have the crew from Popular Mechanics on the show to discuss WTC 7's collapse for a full hour.

She is the perfect example of what is pushing left wing politics.

Why more people just don't see their stupidity is beyond me.

Elizabeth rules.  She's hot, smart, hot, stands her ground against The View nags, hot and ... well .. really hot.

4 This lunacy is such an insult to the victims and their families and to anyone who isn't an idiot she should be fired.  If she started spouting Holocaust denial lunacy, wouldn't they can her ass?

Rosie's promised it -- so let's have it.

Well, if she did, it proves that the View is her show.

6 I hope she's not fired. The longer she stays on the air saying this stuff, the better it is for conservatives.

7 I am amazed that some exec at ABC does not take umbrage at the sow taking a pot shot at "This very network". Does this show make enough money for them that they would whore out their own credibility for ratings and cash?
Oh, right, it's ABC, of course they would.

8 like most deliberately obtuse people, Rosie becomes louder in direct proportion to the idiocy of her comments.

Posted by: mark c at March 29, 2007 12:24 PM (sgmtF)

9 The narcissism of these hollyweird types is amazing.  They say the dumbest things on Earth and people applaud because they're famous, which just encourages them to say even dumber things.

10 The hottie can't handle Rosie. She needs a lassoo, some barrels, and a couple of rodeo clowns. Whoa-oaaaa, big fella!

11 I just heard on the radio that 9/11 was the first time in history that steel was melted by fire. Kind of makes me wonder how they make it. It must just naturally occur in I-beams and stuff.

Posted by: Dave Munger at March 29, 2007 12:35 PM (7z+ns)

12 I think it's great that Elizabeth has the least "credentials" of anyone on that show, yet she surpasses them all combined in common sense and likability. I think The Rosie hates her precisely for that.

"You also got this moron to promise to invite scientists on to the show to discuss her lunacy."

I'm not so sure this wouldn't actually make things worse for us.  Y'know, Rosie cherry picks some conspiracy theorists with a degree in whatever, passes them off as experts on exactly this sort of thing, and "shows up" Liz on her dare, making it look to all the viewers, however many of them that might be (I assume a non-trivial number), that there is now "scientific proof" it must have been a huge conspiracy, and no number of bloggers linking to PM, or any number of references for that matter, will change that.  Shit, I still hear numbnuts talk about Loose Change as though it were proof positive of Bushitler's sinister plot to drag us into war for oil, I can only imagine what something like this could do.

Posted by: dwa at March 29, 2007 12:40 PM (Nnx9P)


WTF. I didn't see it. I don't know how long that godawful clip is but I couldn't make it far enough in to see her claim 9/11 was a conspiracy. It's just not worth it to have to sit there and hear those ninnies clapping for that fatass lunatic.

Posted by: Entropy at March 29, 2007 12:46 PM (Uh5fR)

15 She is so fucking stupid I can't stand. They are a daily demonstration as to why dumb people should stick to watching soap operas during the day.

And, sorry, but Elizabeth is way too much of factual light-weight. She stands strong, but she just isn't bright enough.Of course, I should take into consideration that merely sitting NEAR Rosie with such regularity might be draining her IQ.

Posted by: Carin at March 29, 2007 12:55 PM (Lb4ZX)

16 You know, though, Rosie might be just another Rovian plot ...

17 Do an image search on Elizabeth Hasselbeck.  Much more relaxing.

Posted by: CUS at March 29, 2007 12:58 PM (bbXZq)

18 Can you imagine if she got fired for telling the "truth" about building 7?  You would be hearing the cries of censorship from space, the dkos and huffpo would simultaneously combust and Air America would actually have a ratings bump.  No, they can't can her, she has them so far over a barrel that she can say damn near anything at this point.  But she is an evil, evil woman and anyone associated with her is worse off.

19 Look at the body language, Liz hates Rosie.  I don't think she is going to take this much longer.

Posted by: Stormy70 at March 29, 2007 01:13 PM (7WJsV)

21 Elizabeth should have turned it around - if SHE could get experts to disprove the idiotic truther BS, would Rosie admit that it was as the government said it happened? 

Posted by: Carin at March 29, 2007 01:15 PM (Lb4ZX)


This woman has never heard of welding?

Yeah, Elisabeth is just outgunned. She's can't get her facts out because she's shouted down and belittled. She's probably more concerned with keeping Rosie from eating her. But she is a lightweight, and that's why she was picked. If the producers wanted honest discourse they could've picked a Laura Ingram.

In addition to the 9/11 conspiracy, rosie exposed the historical collusion of big steel and big coal in the efforts to increase greenhouse gasses by burning all that coal to "make steel" for no reason just to harm the environment.

Curse you rosie, and your degree in physics and military strategy, CURSE YOU.

35 Holy shit, I don't know what makes me more insane with disgust, those
three ignorant bitches surrounding Hassellbeck or those mindless
clapping cows in the audience.  What kind of subretard cretin
thinks anything O'Donnell said was smart and applause-worthy?  Do
pudding cups get passed out to women in the audience that clap? 

Hassellbeck is a lightweight, sure (although damn cute), but I wish she
would quit, and on her last day say "Rosie, you are an ignorant fat
fucking manatee who wouldn't recognize an intelligent thought if it was
covered in a sugary glaze and came in boxes of a dozen. Go fuck
yourself." and then walked off the set.

So Rosie thinks the government is behind the 9/11 attacks, and yet she wants to abolish the 2nd amendment.  Smaaaart.

Posted by: Darth Randall at March 29, 2007 03:13 PM (oLULt)

46 Most of the people who watch the view think Hasselback is the idiot and O'Donnell is well informed. Just read some of the forums out there.

Posted by: Red at March 29, 2007 03:20 PM (c02MZ)

Allah says, the great fat lunatic --

Yet, he can't take his fkn eyes off her.  He's probably the only person who watches the View every fricken day.

Posted by: Red at March 29, 2007 03:22 PM (c02MZ)

48 Hasselbach cannot possibly be getting paid enough to endure that insufferable herd of idiots, much less one led by the stupidest rock West of the Grand Canyon and cheered by an audience that would have to study for a generation to graduate to her level of ignorance.

On the next big anniversary of Rosie's View, Hasselbach should, at an appropriate moment when the show is at its most frenzied, back-slapping peak, glare at Walters and say "I quit" and then turn to the Lead Idjit and say, well, I'll steal UGAdawg's line because it's the most appropriate so far:

"Rosie, you are an ignorant fat
fucking manatee who wouldn't recognize an intelligent thought if it was
covered in a sugary glaze and came in boxes of a dozen. Go fuck

If, after that, she then moons the audience, well that wouldn't necessarily be all bad, either.

Good lord, how does that spectacle survive. Has ABC invented some sort of hypnosis ray that makes people catatonic?

49 Can Rosie please explain to all  those still waiting at the arrival gate for four planes to land that took off within hours of the W.T.C. towers falling, might they be found suspended in mid air somewhere over America?. This poor brain dead hag needs a back up brain to lead her out the door and out to "Happy Valley" nurseing home, to play with Jane Fonda , Ed Asner, and Andy Rooney.

51 I couldn't get thru to the part where the fat, stupid one on the left said anything about the US being responsible for WT7. I saw as far as the part where the fat, stupid one second from the right got exasperated over the way we vote for a president--just past the part where the stupid skinny one in the middle couldn't stand the War on Terror because she hated the way it's worded--not the death and destruction and, y'know... WAR--but the mean way we're WORDING it... makes someone sound right and someone sound wrong. And she can't abide by that.

I pulled several muscles by excessive eye-rolling and throwing my head back in disbelief, and just had to stop.

53 One could say that the towers imploded too. They came straight down except for a little tipping on the top few floors. If it looked like building 7 was a controlled demolition why assume it was us. It's the terrorists who like to blow things up-like themselves-ya know -for allah. She's so sadly pathetically dumb. Appease Iran -a country that would hang her for her lifestyle.

55 The truthers are going batshitcrazy on digg. I couldn't even read the comments there anymore. Something is desparately wrong with the American educational system. Or, it's some sort of psychotic  disease.  Believing in conspiracy theories fills some empty place inside these people.  Rosie really needs to get canned. People say if Walters wants to keep her journalistic credentials, etc., but remember it was Babs who went down to Venezuela a few weeks ago and gave Chavez a tongue bath. She has given the show to Rosie and she is just as nutty as her. Or, maybe Babs is motivated soley by ratings.

Posted by: Red at March 29, 2007 07:44 PM (c02MZ)

56 That was the longest clip of "The View" I have ever seen, and I've only seen a few online. My impressions:

O.M.G. How does that Elizabeth put up with those three ignorant harpies day after day, week after week, without completely losing it. How. does. she. do. it. I was cringing, and wanting to turn it off after about 30 seconds, but I held on until the "truther" part.

Surprisingly, when steel is made at the foundry, it begins as iron, is heated to a temperature that burns off the impurities and becomes steel.(simplified example of the process)

In it's hot liquid form the steel can now be formed into I-beams.

Of course if you heat the I-beams again with, for instance, jet fuel, they become soft and liquid again and generally unsuitable for holding up 110 story buildings.(or any other buildings)

How many people do you think actually buy into this 9/11 TRUTH bullshit?

It's seems obscenely prevailent, but that just might be in the visible places, amongst celebrities, on the internet.

How many totally fucking insane people do you think we have buying into this shit?

Posted by: Entropy at March 30, 2007 08:43 AM (m6c4H)

60 I think... a good 10% of the adult population probably buys into it. You have a combination of the truly insane, the really stupid, and the well-meaning but very ill-informed. People who don't know any better and have heard only one side, people who presume the worst out of President Bush, so anything he's accused of, no matter how improbable or ridiculous, is likely and believable.

Look at how many are convinced that President Bush stole the 2000 election by using the courts when it is patently obvious and historically proved that Vice President Gore was the one that actually did so.

Rosie sit her ass down on the View and insulted every last person who lost a love one on the aircrafts on  911. The fun and games end here, the people who profit of garbage like this may hide behind first admendment rights I cannot find any other motive for this insult then greed by the network, Barbara Walters and the people who give her a platform to smear those who will bear scars for a life time. Pulling scabs is not entertainment, and those who watch this trash are as sick as those who produce it. There will be a special place in hell for all of them . What has America done to this poor sick woman to make her hate this country so much, in a Islamic state she would suffer for the life style she enjoys in our great land. To all who enjoy her rants I say, screw you, you sick puppys, see a good vet and get well soon

63 I can see we have a bunch of fucking scientists here who offer no evidence to support the government's take on what happened.  Fucking retards will believe anything Uncle Sam shoves down their throat.

Does anyone have the contact information for "The View"? Because I'd like to send Rosie the following letter:

Dear Rosie,

The msm and the Dems have chosen to downplay the horror and evil of 9/11 as part of their ongoing attempt to convince Americans that our real enemy is not the terrorists who carried out 9/11 or radical Islam, but instead is George Bush in particular and Republicans and Christians in general and above all the United States itself.

Your revisiting the events of 9/11 of course brought back to me, and I'm sure many others, my memories of the horrors of that day, which thanks to the msm blackout, are something we are normally not encouraged to think about.

You also made crystal clear the fundamental insaneness of the msm's and the Dems' attempts to make George Bush and America, rather than radical Islam, the enemy.

Accordingly, I want to thank you for your show and request that you make the events of 9/11 one of the regular subjects on your program.
