On the face of it, Jenny McCarthy seems a reasonable choice to host 'The View,' though do a bit of digging and whole thing looks shaky, at best.
Jenny McCarthy's anti-vaccine views have been cast into the spotlight once more after the former Playboy model and actress was named as the replacement for Elisabeth Hasselbeck and Joy Behar on The View. McCarthy's son Evan was diagnosed with autism back in 2005, while her marriage to director John Mallory Asher ended shortly afterwards.
The problem is, McCarthy did the rounds on America's biggest television shows at the time, claiming vaccinations caused her son to develop autism - this despite there being a minimal evidence to support such a claim.
In fact, the only real study that linked the administration of the measles, mumps and rubella vaccine (MMR) with autism was undertaken by Andrew Wakefield. The British surgeon has since been banned from practicing medicine in the United Kingdom.
Jenny McCarthy is reportedly going to join 'The View' on a full-time basis, swapping her talk show for a seat on the discussion series.

Barbara Walters has gone on the record as saying Elisabeth Hasselbeck will not be leaving The View.
Barbara Walters has attempted to placate the intense rumors concerning 'The View,' with the veteran broadcaster insisting Elisabeth Hasselbeck will not be leaving the show despite reports that suggest her outspoken conservative views is putting off viewers. Deadline.com, Us Weekly and the Hollywood Reporter all report that Hasselbeck's contract will not be renewed, though Walters is adamant the 35-year-old will remain on the show.
"There is a particularly false story that keeps getting picked up about Elisabeth's alleged departure, saying that we don't approve of her conservative views," Walters, who created the long-running talk show, said on Monday's program. (March 11, 2013) "The truth is we love Elisabeth. I like her personally and she's just a wonderful person.But beyond that, we value and appreciate her point of view, it's important to us because Elisabeth helps give the show perspective and balance.So we have no plans for Elisabeth to leave."
ABC had previously released a statement saying that Hasselbeck "is a valued member of The View and had a long-term contract," though failed to address the issue of whether or not she will be offered a renewed deal. The controversial presenter joined the show in 2003 and became known for her heated arguments with liberal co-host Rosie O'Donnell.

Former Vice President Al Gore has put his Current TV up for sale, the New York Post reported today (Friday). It quoted CEO Joel Hyatt, a co-owner with Gore, as saying, Current has been approached many times by media companies interested in acquiring our company. ... This year alone, we have had three inquiries. As a consequence, we thought it might be useful to engage expertise to help us evaluate our strategic options. The Post said that Current has yet to launch a formal sales process. The left-leaning channel, whose principal stars are former New York Governor Eliot Spitzer and former The View and HLN personality Joy Behar, has never drawn significant ratings, except during a period when perennial bad boy Keith Olbermann hosted a talk show (Current fired him last March) -- and even his ratings were a fraction of what they were when he previously appeared on MSNBC. Olbermann, incidentally, is reportedly looking for a new job, Forbes magazine reported on Thursday, noting that he has approached several networks that don't have news programming on their schedule.
