“Can you imagine what would have happened if Meghan McCain had said this? There would have been an immediate reaction from the other ladies at the table calling for her to be fired. Yet, Whoopi says something inappropriate and nothing happens to her,” a source tells Radar.

“At this point it is a joke. Everyone at the show is scared of Whoopi and walk on eggshells around her. Where is the outrage from Joy [Behar]? Sara [Haines] has always been a coward, so there is no surprise that she once again has said nothing. Where are the executives? And how did the producers, who went over the segment with Whoopi before the live show allow this to happen? It is because they are all frightened of her and don’t want to upset. Whoop is treated like an elder stateswoman on the show and never challenged," the insider divulged.

“So yesterday on our show, I misspoke,” Goldberg said at the top of Tuesday’s show after catching backlash over her controversial Holocaust comments. “I said that the Holocaust wasn’t about race and it was instead about man’s inhumanity to man. But it is indeed about race, because Hitler and the Nazis considered the Jews to be an inferior race. Now, words matter and mine are no exception. I regret my comments as I said, and I stand corrected.”

Goldberg then introduced Anti-Defamation League CEO Jonathan Greenblatt as a guest to “help continue this very important conversation.”

“The lack of outrage at ABC is very telling,” adds a source at another network. “There are a lot of people who work in that building that would be horrified had someone shared the same views as Whoopi on Fox News. The hierocracy is outrageous and dangerous.”
