Outspoken liberal Joy Behar was an English teacher decades before she emerged as an anti-Trump talk show host. (ABC) “The View” co-host Joy Behar has emerged as a far-left political pundit that supporters of President Trump love to hate, but she began her show business career as a standup comedian over three decades ago after a career as an English teacher. The ABC gab fest finished the 2017-18 TV season with an average of 2.9 million viewers, the show’s most-watched year since 2012-13. Behar’s polarizing hot takes are largely responsible for the show’s success during the Trump era, as she regularly battles the show’s lone conservative, Meghan McCain, with heated political arguments. “Whether you tune into hate watch, cheer for whatever blurts out from Joy Behar, or see Meghan McCain battling Behar or Whoopi, 'The View' has become prime viewing just like the White House press briefing,” NewsBusters' managing editor Curtis … [Read more...] about How ‘The View’ star Joy Behar went from teacher to comic to liberal pundit Trump supporters love to hate

CULTURE & ARTS 07/28/2018 08:02 am ET Except maybe 19-year-old soccer star Christian Pulisic's Captain America moment. HuffPost Staff Welcome to Good Stuff, HuffPost’s weekly recommendation series devoted to the least bad things on and off the internet. The other morning on “The View,” we watched the seemingly eternal 1990s of our politics die in a heap next to Joy Behar’s coffee mug. It was something to see — morning TV chatting merrily about democratic socialism, Sunny Hostin reading the bullet points from Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez’s platform, Joy Behar nodding along and smiling as if she were hearing the most sensible stuff in the world, Meghan McCain looking like the death mask of Marie Antoinette. People had a lot of fun with McCain’s panicky reaction, and there are definitely pleasures to be had in the way she’s reduced to burbling about Venezuela and Margaret Thatcher. But pay attention to Behar, to … [Read more...] about There Were Zero Things Better This Week Than Joy Behar Embracing Socialism
AP By J. Warner Wallace | Fox News I didn’t become a Christian until the age of thirty-five, and prior to that time, I also found it disturbing when Christians said, “God spoke to me last night,” or, “Jesus told me I should do this (or that).” Behar expressed a similar concern when she told her co-hosts, “It’s one thing to talk to Jesus. It’s another thing when Jesus talks to you. That’s called mental illness if I’m not correct. Hearing voices.” I can honestly remember saying something similar to a Christian co-worker back when I was a committed atheist. He claimed that God told him something, and I thought he was, well… crazy. But years later, after becoming a Christian myself, I began to understand exactly what believers mean when they use expressions like this, and it’s not necessarily what Joy Behar may think. I pressed my Christian friend, all those years ago, and asked him if he actually heard the … [Read more...] about What Do Christians Mean When They Say ‘God Spoke to Me?’

It’s not even past.Quoting William Faulkner may seem overly dramatic when the issue of the day involves Jane Fonda’s latest face lift. But add Megyn Kelly to the equation, and the blow-up that follows has little to do with Fonda’s nips and tucks. It’s all about Kelly’s history as a Fox News host. Liberals won’t forgive her for it. And TV’s liberal mean girls are especially mean as Kelly struggles to find a formula that works at her new home at NBC. Advertisement The latest Kelly controversy links back to an awkward segment that occurred during the premiere week of her show, when she told Fonda she looked “amazing” and went on to say: “I read that you said you felt you’re not proud to admit that you’ve had work done. Why … [Read more...] about Does Megyn Kelly really deserve this vitriol?
By Martha Ross | [email protected] | Bay Area News Group PUBLISHED: January 24, 2018 at 9:03 am | UPDATED: January 24, 2018 at 9:28 am Megyn Kelly apparently didn’t go into work Tuesday, the day after she used three minutes of valuable “Today” show airtime to offer a stinging “Hanoi Jane” rebuke of Jane Fonda and to defend her own actions in what has become the first great celebrity feud of 2018. Page Six reported that NBC didn’t tape Kelly’s live show on Tuesday, opting instead to air a pre-taped segment on sex trafficking. The programming choice seemed curious given that Kelly’s 9 a.m. hour would have been a good time to report on the announcement of this year’s Oscar’s nominations. “Today” often finds that interviews with nominees can be a ratings booster, Page Six added. After what the Decider called Kelly’s “mysterious” absence, she completely avoided the Fonda controversy when … [Read more...] about Megyn Kelly went shopping instead of doing her show after Jane Fonda rebuke, report says
