I've been watching the View sporadically ever since Rosie O'Donnell and Elisabeth Hasselbeck got into that dispute a few years back. When McCarthy was announced as a new host I wasnt sure how that was going to go, but she seems to be settling in. Shes even getting along better with Whoopi.

What is bugging me though is that whenever the topic of childhood disability comes up, she doesnt say much. I get that people want to protect their kids, but she is in the position of speaking about things like this. I dont know what her views are about vaccines and Im not really bothered about that. I'm just wondering what she might have to share about autism.

The Wikipedia article about her
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Jenny_McCarthy

Look at the "Autism activism" and "Objections to appointment on The View" sections

Yes, but most of the article shows concern for what she might say. But I haven't seen her say anything much since she joined the hosts. Not about autism or vaccines. Maybe Barbara put in her contract that she cant talk about it.
I think it could be a good discussion.
