The Wall Street Journal has a really, incredibly, way too long article about The View today in which writer Dorothy Rabinowitz likens the show to a riveting guilty pleasure of little importance whose co-hosts have little to no knowledge of the occasional newsy topics they bring up between celebrity gossip. I totally take issue with that, for many reasons. First of all, Ms. Rabinowitz's digs about uninformed co-hosts are made about Whoopi, Joy, and Barbara, but she totally lets Sherri Shepherd off the hook. Sherri! It's almost as though Rabinowitz is kind of siding with her, and going after the others for attacking Sherri for her beliefs. I have to call bullshit on this, seeing as Rabinowitz focused on one episode of the show that aired last week, during which Sherri said that she wouldn't want her son wearing a dress in her home, even if her were gay or transgendered, or Scottish or just playing around.
