The hosts of the daytime show The View had a lengthy debate last week about California's Proposition 8. Some of the information they injected into the debate, however, was misleading and false. After GLAAD sent the hosts an email clarifying the facts surrounding Proposition 8, Whoopi Goldberg helped clarify some of the misconceptions. See below for a description of each segment and watch the video.
