Jemele Hill makes her The View debut, and clashes with Meghan McCain
McCain questioned the ESPN personality on whether she thinks Trump supporters are white supremacists. “I still stand by what I said,” Hill responded. “I don’t think that his supporters are white supremacists.

Mike Pence criticizes The View for "insult" about his religion
Joy Behar earlier this week said the vice president must be suffering from mental illness if, as Omarosa said, "he thinks Jesus tells him to say things." Pence was asked about Behar's comments by Axios. "I actually heard that ABC has a program that compared my Christianity to mental illness," he responded. "And I'd like to laugh about it, but I really can't." He added: "I have to tell you — to have ABC maintain a broadcast forum that compared Christianity to mental illness is just wrong. And it's an insult, not to me, but to the vast majority of the American people who, like me, cherish their faith. My Christianity is the most important thing in my life."

Fox Sports has completely ignored the Larry Nassar sex abuse story
Deadspin found that the sex abuse scandal has never been discussed on any program on FS1 or FS2 in the past six months, based on a search of closed-captioning keywords. Deadspin’s Laura Wagner reports, “A Fox Sports spokesman declined to discuss the coverage on the record, but noted that the network doesn’t cover gymnastics. This leaves several remaining questions. Does Fox Sports only cover sports it has the rights to? (The answer to that one is no.) Is there no one—not even one of the dozens of people Fox pays to talk about sports news on TV—who was willing or able to discuss Nassar? Are there plans to cover major news stories like the USA Gymnastics sex abuse case in the future?” ALSO: The View gives Aly Raisman a standing ovation following Nassar’s sentencing.

Everyone’s picking sides on the Aziz Ansari story: Is he guilty of assault or just being a really bad date?
“There are two sides that are drawing supporters,” says Lisa Respers France of the Babe.net story accusing the Master of None star of sexual misconduct. “Some are saying the allegations against Ansari assault weakens the #MeToo movement. The other side: This is the kind of conduct that has given rise to movements like #MeToo and #TimesUp and that just because it happens a lot doesn't make it right. The story has all of the ingredients of one that begs controversy: sexual politics and power, and comes at a time when Hollywood and the culture is grappling with the treatment of women.”
- The Aziz Ansari story is making headlines because it’s so “ordinary” — it reveals our broken attitudes towards sex
- The View defends Ansari: “Whatever happened to stop or I’m going to knock you in your nuts?” said Whoopi Goldberg

- Yes, Ansari has power as a wealthy Netflix star — but he had no actual power over his accuser

- What is Babe.net?: The website with the Ansari story started a year and a half ago as an experiment
- Babe.net editor: “I can’t even tell you how many tweets and comments we’ve seen from girls saying 'I’ve been Grace. I am Grace’”
