The insider said that part-time conservative co-host Ana Navarro "probably drank so many goddamn margaritas" to celebrate McCain's announcement last week. Another source said Goldberg, Navarro and Joy Behar all said network managers they no longer wanted to work with McCain.
"It happened when [the new president of ABC News] Kim [Godwin] walked in," this source said. "It was right after Joy and Meghan's huge [on-air] explosion [in May] that the network called an emergency meeting."
“They said to the new management: 'We don't want to work with her anymore'. Whoopi knew she didn't want to work with her either, ”added the source. "There were so many well-documented issues and [Meghan] didn't make a good impression on the new management."

The previous regime at ABC reportedly had McCain's back. When McCain and Sunny Hostin didn't get along, sources claimed the former brass boss told Hostin, "'Get on with Meghan or get out of here." "

"Meghan hated Sunny and didn't trust her," explained the first source. "She thought she was going to leak stories about her and it was a dire situation. [ABC Brass] Sunny was essentially saying, 'Let's not choose between you and Meghan because we won't choose you.' And they've had a fake friendship ever since. "
