The View debates if Marjorie Taylor Greene should be ignored: 'Is there an actual value in this?'

"The View" debated whether it was worthwhile discussing controversial Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene (R-GA), who recently suggested Jane Fonda had called for her assassination on the show.

The hosts reviewed a new study that found “hyper-partisan” politicians received more than four times the media coverage as more bipartisan lawmakers did during the 2022 midterm election cycle, and they agreed the Georgia Republican got a lot more attention than she probably deserved.

"The people really want the truth, for a long time they thought that the media was very biased -- they thought that," said host Whoopi Goldberg. "So when somebody comes along and says the media is very biased, doesn't tell you the truth and then you sit with that person and you hear what they say and they are not telling the truth, you go wait a minute. People started going what is wrong here? I just think, you know, as a nation, we have an ability to make decisions and make the right people -- put the right people where they're supposed to be."

Co-host Sunny Hostin said hyper-partisan lawmakers were simply exploiting a structural flaw in media coverage.

"This is just how the news works," Hostin said. "If it bleeds, it leads, we know that. Sara [Haines] and I have been doing news for long enough. I think, I found a little bit of, I don't know, some highlights in this report. I was pleased there were so many bipartisan Republicans that I had never heard of, they gave us an entire list. I thought maybe that's where the media needs to be a little bit better."

"Ratings are king," co-host Joy Behar added. "That's the problem."

Conservative Alyssa Farah Griffin said the panelists debate whether to discuss Greene's antics whenever she comes up in pre-show meetings.

"By the way, we talk a lot in our 'hot topics' meeting when we get the craziest thing Marjorie Taylor Greene said," Griffin said. "We debate, is there an actual value to talk about this? The 'national divorce,' we agreed it was dangerous and we need to take it on. We don't take it on if she's just being crazy."
