Comedian Wanda Sykes reportedly nixed an appearance on ABC’s “The View” due to the presence of former Trump press aide Alyssa Farah Griffin serving as a guest co-host. 

Sykes was initially scheduled to appear on last Friday’s show. However, she purportedly canceled the plan after her publicist discovered that Farah Griffin would serve as a co-host on the show.

“She didn’t want to be part of helping a Trumper launder her reputation,” a source insider told the Daily Beast. A rep for The View declined to comment, while a representative for Sykes didn’t get back to the media outlet. 

Farah Griffin is not the only former Trump official-turned-Trump-critic to guest co-host as part of “The View.” Stephanie Grisham has repeatedly repented for her work under both and has also regularly appeared on the program.

Sykes could be out of the fold at “The View” as Farah Griffin is reportedly one of the two candidates who could fill the vacant seat when Meghan McCain departed the show last summer. 

“You are starting to see familiar faces over and over,” a source told The Post. “I would expect an announcement before the season ends on August 5.”

CNN host Brian Stelter is set to depart after his weekly media show, Reliable Sources has been cancelled.

In a statement to NPR, Stelter said “It was a rare privilege to lead a weekly show focused on the press at a time when it has never been more consequential,” noting that Sunday would be the final episode.

According to a report from The Daily Beast, Stelter had been at odds with the direction of the network after the departure of CNN President Jeff Zucker.

Stelter came to CNN after working as a media reporter for The New York Times. CNN President Chris Licht informed Stelter, the host of the network’s longest running show, of the cancellation yesterday.

“CNN will end its Reliable Sources program on Sunday, August 21st. As a result Brian Stelter will leave the company. We appreciate his contributions to the network and wish him well as he embarks on new endeavors,” a network spokesperson told Mediaite.

Stelter had agreed to host a daily episode of Reliable Sources on CNN+, but the streaming platform was disbanded shortly thereafter.

Fox News host Laura Ingraham criticized a writer for The Atlantic  Tuesday after she claimed he attempted to “villainize” people who pray the rosary. 

In the article, Daniel Panneton asks why AR 15 rifles are showing up besides rosary beads online. 

“Just as the AR-15 rifle has become a sacred object for Christian nationalists in general, the rosary has acquired a militaristic meaning for radical-traditional (or “rad trad”) Catholics,” the article read.

“I am looking at the glass half-full,” Ingraham said. “Just because they demonize the rosary that must be something I should be doing more of.” 

Fox News contributor Raymond Arroyo chimed in, offering that Christians have been praying the rosary for centuries adding the writer is probably,” filled with religious animus” and that “he’s afraid of faith.” 

Ingraham pointed out that The Atlantic has since changed the title of the article from “How the Rosary Became an Extremist Symbol” to “How Extremist Gun Culture Is Trying to Co-opt the Rosary.”
