Barry said he would not perform a song on The View, a new
theme song I believe, unless old Elizabeth was not on the set!

The producers (Babs) said, uh, no Barry. She works there.
He had appeared with her two times before in the past already.

I guess he can't handle the vicious Liz, the big toughie that
she is all alone in a liberal city, on a liberal set, with liberal
co-hosts.... Wow, she must be one difficult host:
'So, Barry, what's your favorite city to play in?'
Yeah, that View commentary is harsh on singing guests.



So, he's out. (not literally, just from the show).

He thinks her views are dangerous! Yikes!

So, once again, the tolerance of the left emerges.

4 to 1 isn't good enough Barry?
If you were there, it would be 5 to 1.
That's not enough of a bias in your favor?


Dangerous, she's a lightweight conservative.
A moderate at best. She just happens to differ
on some key issues, and that demands a boycott from
a very old, over plastic surgeon visited, and bad hair
singer - who can still belt them out respectfully.

Love that Bandstand song, I admit it.

Lame move Barry.

Guess he needs some more publicity for his bad CD.
You got it. It worked.

Good for Barry! He knows the well-lit set at The View won't be kind to his facelift scars, and I'm sure he's afraid Elizabitch might try to hit on him too.

Barry Manilow doesn't need to be going anywhere anyway. He looks like he'll just fall over at any second. Not that you'll respond to this, but samsung what were all the oscar voters who refused to even see Brokeback Mountain?

I saw on one of the ubiquitous cable stations that kids who were convicted of violating noise ordinances by playing loud rap music were required to spend an hour listening to Manilow's music as part of their punishment.

The looks on their faces gave the impression that they were not happy. :lol: :lol:

That said, his writing for Nancy Wilson's Cd called With My Lover Beside Me is art at its highest level. :)

well i think its all about how you deal with things, but if I were Barry, I would have gone on the View, even if there was one or 2 more conservatives on the panel instead of liberals. I mean, the show is called "The View", and is supposed to be representative of different women's viewpoints, not just one viewpoint.

Some liberals love diversity of everything except viewpoints that don't agree with their's.

If Barry REALLY wanted to fuck with them he would have showed up and started singing, "I write the Songs". Now THAT would make them suffer!

Manilow Shuns 'View' Over Hasselbeck

'Copacabana' Singer Calls Conservative Co-Host 'Dangerous'

LOS ANGELES (Sept. 17) - Pop singer Barry Manilow, a major Democratic fundraiser, said on Monday he has scrapped plans to appear on the television talk show "The View," because he did not want to be interviewed by its conservative co-host.

Manilow was scheduled to appear on the ABC morning show Tuesday, the same day his new album, "The Greatest Songs of the Seventies" hits stores. But those plans fell through because of his issues with Elisabeth Hasselbeck, an abortion opponent and supporter of the Iraq war.

"I had made a request that I be interviewed by (co-hosts) Joy (Behar), Barbara (Walters) or Whoopi (Goldberg), but not Elisabeth Hasselbeck. Unfortunately, the show was not willing to accommodate this simple request so I bowed out," he said in a statement on his Web site (http://www.manilow.com (http://www.manilow.com/)).

"It's really too bad because I've always been a big supporter of the show, but I cannot compromise my beliefs."

In an earlier statement to the news Web site TMZ.com, which broke the news, Manilow said Hasselbeck was "dangerous" and "offensive."

But a source close to "The View" said "we canceled him," because producers refused to comply with Manilow's "completely disrespectful" demands.

The source told Reuters that Manilow had appeared on the show twice in the past year when Hasselbeck was present, and had been booked for Tuesday's appearance since July. The source could not think of a similar incident with another guest happening in the past.

Manilow has been a generous contributor to Democratic Party candidates, according to data compiled by the Federal Election Commission.

This year, he contributed the maximum-allowable $2,300 each to the presidential campaigns of Hillary Clinton, Barack Obama, Joseph Biden, and John Edwards, as well as to Ron Paul, a maverick Texas Republican.

I agree, it seems very immature not to accept opposing opinions regardless of where you stand on an issue. The View doesn't usually ask entertainers about hot topics anyways, so I don't quite understand why he has a problem with Elizabeth interviewing him with the rest of the co-hosts?:rolleyes:

that view is commonly held by conservatives too.

Whatever, Barry.

Has he actually come out yet? Or is he just not saying what everyone knows?

Exactly.... example in point being the censorship of Sally Field's acceptance speech at the recent Primetime Emmy Awards show.

It's not about viewpoints. It's about what she likes to refer to as "the facts" which are actually lies.

The bitch lies and no one calls her on it. Like the other day when she said, "People never talk about the good stuff in Iraq, like the fact that women can vote now when they couldn't before." What the f-k was that sh!t!?! Women have been able to vote and run for office in Iraq since 1980 (and for a short period under a provisional constitution in the early 1970s). Guess who came into power in 1980? Saddam.

Since we've invaded, and religious fanatics have been given new power, women's rights have significantly regressed.

No one said anything, and when Joy tries to speak up Bawa tells her she's overreacting. I can't even watch that show anymore. I tried watching it once to see how Whoopi was doing and that shit happened. It really turns my stomach.

The same can be said about some conservatives. And probably neo-nazis. Not that this should stop us from making blanket statements about a group which is actually applicable to the entire human race.

Whoopi Goldberg told a blanket lie about Southerners during her comments on Michael Vick but that didn't seem to bother very many people.

Leftist lies = good.
Conservative lies = bad.

What is more annoying about Elisabeth is not that she is conservative just that she is so damn stupid and doesn't seem to actually have a real opinion on anything but instead is like im conservative must believe all these things are bad, Bush is good, that is my world view. No complexity in her worldview.

I wouldn't call Whoopi's comments about Vick "leftist." Somehow I doubt PETA would endorse those views. Just because they came out of her mouth doesn't make them "leftist." You're using typical Elizabeth reasoning by drawing those conclusions. Which is illogical.

I never defended her comments. And unlike Elizabeth's some took issue with what Whoopi said. Elizabeth's lies just float out of her mouth and no one says shit!

Number one, who said that you defended Whoopi's comments and number two why does no one say shit? :lol:
