CNN’s S.E. Cupp Being Considered to Join ‘The View’


One of Washington’s most probable contenders is being considered by “The View” to potentially join the program, according to an industry insider.

S.E. Cupp, a regular face on CNN’s relaunch of “Crossfire,” has been approached by “View” executives.

On Monday, Meghan McCain – a conservative pundit and daughter of former presidential hopeful Sen. John McCain – will guest co-host the program, the network confirmed yesterday. McCain and Cupp are likely being considered to fill the conservative co-host role of Elisabeth Hasselbeck, who departed the program in 2013. Our gut tells us that next to Rosie, Cupp will be better at holding her own compared to McCain.

Also slated to guest co-host next week: WGN’s Ana Belaval and ABC News’ Sara Haines.

Only time will tell…

You know its a big news day when you ditch the Venti for the Starbucks “jug.” Guess the desk.

Playing catch-up… Whitney Kuhn, Megan Grant, Nu Wexler, Meredith Harman, Kirit Radia, Clarice Feldman, Ann Limpert and David King all correctly guessed that FBDC dined at Brasserie Beck on Tuesday. And Happy Birthday to Ben Bradlee.

Washington and the world woke up today to the news that Senator Ted Kennedy had lost his battle with brain cancer. FBDC has covered that story today; now here’s what else was happening in DC and media this Wednesday…



Katie Couric has been named the 2009 recipient of the Al Neuharth Award for Excellence in the Media. The CBS “Evening News” anchor will speak at the awards ceremony October 8th at Neuharth’s alma mater, the University of South Dakota. Past Neuharth award recipients include Couric’s CBS colleague Bob Schieffer (2006), the late CBS newsmen Don Hewitt (2004) and Walter Cronkite (1989).

Fox News’ Chris Wallace- and his yellow Lab Winston- are featured in the upcoming fall issue of Capitol File. Get a sneak peek here.

The Jackson family will the subject of a new A&E reality television show, though the details remain sketchy. NYT‘s Brian Stelter has what we know so far.

And Kate Gosselin (FBDC confession: “Jon & Kate Plus 8″ is a guilty pleasure) will co-host “The View” on ABC September 14th and 15th while Elisabeth Hasselbeck is on maternity leave.


Not all too surprising considering the demographic of Tweeters FBDC follows– NYT reports it isn’t teens driving Twitter’s popularity.


Elle has offered a homeless girl an internship this fall.


According to Pew, Afghanistan has received just two percent of all news coverage since January 1st, prompting NPR to ask: Where’s The Afghanistan Coverage?

In a rare interview, Jayson Blair talks about how he went from disgraced journo to life coach.

Behar: GOP Candidates “Pussies” For Not Doing “The View”

joy.jpgOn Friday’s “Real Time with Bill Maher“, “View” host Joy Behar took Republican presidential candidates to task for refusing to appear on ABC’s daytime talk show, “The View.”

“They’re all pro-war and they all talk gung-ho about they’re going to invade Iraq, but the Republican candidates are a bunch of pussies … because none of them will come on ‘The View’,” said Behar.

“If they can’t face me, how are they going to face Osama bin Laden and the rest of them?” she asked.

Behar noted that Democrats don’t have a problem appearing on the show. On Monday, Sen. Hillary Clinton will join Behar and her co-hosts, Barbara Walters, Whoopi Goldberg, Elisabeth Hasselbeck and Sherri Shepherd. Sens. Joseph Biden and Barack Obama have already made appearances.

Behar had to admit that it felt liberating to be on the HBO show, where she is permitted to use more vulgar language. “I can’t say that in front of [Barbara Walters],” she said.
