‘View’ staff allegedly banned from talking to Meghan McCain by executive producer

“The View’s” executive producer allegedly doesn’t want Meghan McCain, who left “The View” to become a new columnist at the Daily Mail, to get news about the show that she could feed to the tabloid. However, a spokesperson for “The View” has denied claims that staffers have been banned from speaking to McCain.

“The View’s” executive producer Brian Teta has allegedly attempted to ban staffers of the show from speaking to their former colleague, Page Six reported. The outlet claimed that Teta wants to prevent McCain from obtaining news about “The View” that she could potentially feed to the British tabloid. “Brian has lost his mind. What does he think this is? A cult, where everyone has to listen to what he has to say?” an unnamed source told the outlet. “We literally report into the news division. We’re being told not to talk to someone on the outside, who has different political views… who used to work with us.”

“They have bigger problems than Meghan and the Daily Mail. They should be more afraid of Candace Cameron Bure saying she suffered PTSD from hosting the show,” the second source said, adding that McCain’s new column is more political, and has, “nothing to do with gossip. She doesn’t care about what’s happening at ‘The View.’” McCain, 36, left the show in August after a combative four seasons as a co-host. The show continues to search for her replacement [Newsflash One].

The insider added that many of the staffers are “still in contact” with McCain. However, a spokesperson for “The View” has denied the claims. “This is not true. No one has been banned from talking to Meghan. Our focus is on the exciting season ahead and we wish the best for Meghan in her next chapter,” they said. “Her mom [Cindy McCain] was recently on as a co-host. This is so not true. It was a warm reaction and there’s nothing but warm thoughts for Meghan. And she and Brian left on good terms,” they said [IB Times].
