(RightWing.org) – ABC host Whoopi Goldberg is stirring up controversy again. This time she’s accused Fox News of recruiting domestic terrorists, although, of course, she doesn’t have any actual evidence. It’s ironic that Goldberg decided to make an issue of Fox, considering her own history of provocative outbursts.
The View’s Whoopi Goldberg asks why Fox News and Tucker Carlson reporting on J6 Footage isn’t considered “recruiting” domestic terrorists by “radicalizing” them.

On the March 8 episode of ABC’s “The View,” Goldberg called for the Department of Justice to investigate Fox News. She ranted, “How come this is not thought of as being recruiting… as radicalizing?” When co-host Sunny Hostin asked if she meant recruiting domestic terrorists, Goldberg didn’t deny it but just went on with her diatribe. She called the media “a lying sack of doo” — ironic, as she’s worked in the media her whole career — and continued to blast Fox.
Goldberg’s problem is with the defamation case against Fox by Dominion Voting Systems, the controversial company whose voting machines were at the heart of many disputed results in the 2020 presidential election. Dominion says Fox knowingly backed the narrative that the election had been stolen by Biden, despite internal emails showing the network’s executives (including owner Rupert Murdoch) didn’t believe this. She claims it should be “against the law” to “lie to the American[sic] knowingly.”
Goldberg’s sudden opposition to controversial news is an eyebrow-raiser because she’s stirred up plenty of controversy herself. In 2009 she defended pedophile filmmaker Roman Polanski over drugging and raping a 13-year-old girl, saying it wasn’t “rape-rape.” A year later she did it again, this time denying that actor Mel Gibson is a racist.
She returned to protecting rapists in 2015, standing up for Bill Cosby — then dropping him like a hot potato when the evidence started to pile up. In 2022 she caused outrage by claiming the Holocaust wasn’t about anti-Semitism and brushing it off as white people fighting amongst themselves. That earned her a two-week suspension, and it should have taught her to keep her rants under control. Sadly, it doesn’t seem to have worked.
