Joy Behar is such a hypocrite.
She can sit here and talk about crazy Trump theories until the cows come home, but when damaging facts come up about a Democrat, she’s always quick to shut it down.
Case in point today, while discussing the so-called “injustice” of Roger Stone’s recent win against his obnoxiously long prison sentence, Behar’s co-host Sunny Hostin started to bring up Michael Bloomberg and his controversial “stop and frisk” policies that just came to light.
Objective reporting for the educated American.
Behar quickly stopped Hostin by saying they would cover it “later,” which was followed by Whoopi Goldberg handing her a piece of paper.
Needless to say, it wasn’t ever discussed because they “ran out of time.”
“Let’s talk about Bloomberg in the next segment,” Joy Behar said as fellow co-hosts Whoopi Goldberg and Meghan McCain cut in to say they would talk about it in the next segment.
Goldberg then handed Hostin a slip of paper and said, “Here’s the full thing.”
“Yeah, I’ve —,” Hostin responded before the show went to the break. The hosts did not discuss Bloomberg again for the rest of the show.
A representative for ABC told the Washington Examiner the hosts planned to discuss the topic, but ran out of time. “We planned to discuss but we ran out of time with the scheduled Janet Jackson surprise for our audience,” the representative said. [Washington Examiner]

Doesn’t this remind you of the famous CNN “technical difficulties” when they lost a feed suddenly when a message they didn’t want to promote came up?
Well, looks like ABC’s The View is just playing by the same tune.
Cut off the conversation by any means necessary to prevent any counter-arguments from occurring.
