Exclusive: ABC Told Rosie Not To Talk About Dead U.S. Troops
O'Donnell censored on The View right from the start

Rosie O'Donnell was ordered by ABC not to talk about casualty figures of U.S. troops in Iraq on The View and was continually censored and blocked in her attempts to feature prominent members of the 9/11 Truth Movement as guests on the show.
O'Donnell had met with 9/11 truth crusader and World Trade Center hero William Rodriguez before she went public with her comments on The View questioning the suspicious collapse of Building 7. Pictured above is Rosie holding the famous key that Rodriguez used in the twin towers during the rescue efforts.
Rodriguez was instrumental in arranging the appearance of 9/11 first responders on The View which is set to air Friday.
Rosie has attempted to get William Rodriguez on the show as a guest on numerous occasions over the last few weeks but was rebuffed by program directors every time due to Rodriguez's vocal stance that 9/11 was an inside job. O'Donnell again attempted to simply mention Rodriguez's today but was shouted down.
Rosie was told almost from day one that she could not mention U.S. troop casualty figures in Iraq and the cover-up of the real death count, despite the fact that Neo-Con panelist Elisabeth Hasselbeck was given free reign and allowed to say what she liked, including referring to the Iraqi people as "animals."
The fact that O'Donnell was blocked from talking about dead U.S. troops feeds into the same censorship that bars the media from filming coffins of returning soldiers at Dover AFB and other locations.
One of the primary reasons why O'Donnell rejected ABC's contract offer was because the show's Neo-Con producer, Bill Geddie , was continually editing her statements and censoring what could be broadcast. The View is normally pre-taped and aired the next day but occasionally on Tuesdays or Thursdays the broadcast goes out live. Sources tell us that O'Donnell would choose the live show to make statements about 9/11, but that after the initial furore, Geddie even resorted to inserting a delay between the recording and the transmission so that he could live edit controversial statements he didn't like.
Barbara Walters also told People Magazine that even outside of the show, Rosie was discouraged from blogging because ABC were fearful of the content on her website.
Following her decision to reject ABC's offer of a new three year contract under the proviso that Rosie accept censorship of her comments, Fox News and other Neo-Con hacks are claiming that O'Donnell was fired from The View , a total lie designed to chill free speech and scare other prominent individuals into keeping quiet.
Much to the chagrin of those that tried to have Rosie kicked off the air altogether, according to reports O'Donnell plans to launch her own TV show next year absent the censorship she has had to endure at the hands of ABC.
