Rosie O'Dumbell is leaving the view after one year. It seems odd that since she has been on the air the ratings have been better. However, those stupid 9-11 conspiracy comments probably scared the suits.
Rosie is a dumba$$, but she understood the same forces that claimed Imus would come looking for a scalp He comments were disgusting and far worse than Imus's lame attempt at humor. Yet this is likely an executive matter and the top brass is gun shy. They didn't want the potential headaches Rosie's mouth could create.
Sadly, she has revitalized her career and someone will give her a mediocre talk show watched by idiots. The show will become a lightning rod and generate its own publicity. The question is who is brave enough to risk it in the new environment.
