Last week it was widely reported that Elisabeth Hasselbeck's View contract hadn't been renewed, after a viewer poll rated her views to conservative.
Today Barbara Walters denied the reports: "There's a particularly false story that keeps getting picked up about Elisabeth's alleged departure saying we don't approve of her conservative views...The truth is...we value and appreciate her point of view, it's important to us, because it helps give the show perspective and balance."
"We have no plans for Elisabeth to leave the show," said Walters. "Having said that to all of you, Bill [Geddie] and I have always said that when one of you make the choice to leave, that's your choice, and we will support your decision."
Hasselbeck herself hasn't commented on whether she'll be leaving.
