Meghan Mccain Is Leaving ‘The View’—Draws Comparisons On How Women & Men Are Portrayed By Media: “We Are Covered With Deep Misogyny”
Thursday, Jul 1, 2021
After four years of controversial clashes with her liberal co-hosts, a right-winged Meghan McCain announces her departure from The View. Following the news of her exit, McCain called out the media for its “deep misogyny” and “really reductive coverage” of women in comparison to how men are portrayed.
“My final note to the world watching … The media needs to do a better job of covering the women on this show,” McCain shared. “We are covered with deep misogyny and sexism by the media. If five men were doing what we do every day, I really do believe that we’d probably have a Pulitzer Prize.”

Despite McCain being on the receiving end of backlash because of her conservative views and spirited debates with cohosts—mostly with Joy Behar and Whoopi Goldberg—Whoopi wished her well and said that she’ll be a “better person” because of her experience with The View.
“Everything possible has been fired at you, so when you leave here, you’re a better person, better woman, better mother, better friend,” Goldberg said. “And so, we’ve got a month together. Let’s make the most of it.”
