  • ‘The View’ co-hosts debate whether Tucker Carlson should be taken off the air

    On Tuesday, the co-hosts of The View discussed Tucker Carlson’s latest debacle: the firing of one of his writers, Blake Neff, over racist posts he made, and whether the host should be taken off-air. On The View, Meghan McCain weighed in on the cancel culture debate and defended Carlson. “I am against cancel culture,” said McCain. “And I think one of the reasons why I am always a proponent of Tucker Carlson’s is because I believe in diversity of opinion.” McCain went on to say she agreed with the firing, calling the posts “abhorrent,” but thought Carlson was not to blame, even though he’d read on-air what Neff had written in his teleprompter (in a recent interview, Neff said “the first draft was written by me”). “I don’t hold him accountable for his writer’s actions in the same way that I don’t hold any person accountable for someone they’re attached to’s actions,” said McCain. She then addressed her co-hosts, saying, “Your criticism of his writer has turned into a criticism of him.” The discussion then launched into a broader debate over cancel culture, and if Carlson should be taken off the air. A frustrated Whoopi Goldberg interrupted the rising cross-talk saying, “Let me just answer. Do I think he should get pulled off the air? No I don’t,” she said. “Because in America, everyone is entitled to their own opinion.”
