Whoopi defends Mel Gibson again

Judging from this clip, Whoopi Goldberg isn't a fan of Radar Online. That's the web mag that posted the phone calls between Mel Gibson and his ex-girlfriend that have created a big media firestorm. Today on 'The View' (weekday mornings on ABC), Radar Executive VP David Perel was a guest and got a lot of pointed questions (and fingers pointed at him) from Whoopi, who at one point recently defended her friend Gibson (and then backtracked a bit on it).

highlights include:
- whoopi not understanding why she didn't go to the police first
- whoopi saying radar online was wrong because they didn't go to the police
- radar online guy telling whoopi she's basically wrong & an idiot
- whoopi doesn't understand the point of...journalism & the press
- more mel supporting, etc
- victim blaming, etc
