Former “The View” Producer Bill Geddie: Whoopi Will Be Fine, “But there’s something bigger at play here”
Bill Geddie was the original producer of “The View.” He was there for 17 years. Now he’s weighing on Whoopi Goldberg’s situation. She was suspended by ABC for two weeks after insisting the Holocaust wasn’t about race. Whoopi refused to apologize when literally everyone complained. On “Colbert,” on Twitter, on “The View” on Tuesday she just kept doubling down on her position while at the same time saying she appreciated hearing all sides, including the Anti-Defamation League. What was she thinking? This is unlike her. Whoopi is not anti-Semite. But she seems to have gotten caught up in her own rhetoric and won’t let go of it.
I met Bill Geddie many times. He was a straight shooter. This is what he said today on Facebook.
