Producers of The View are trying to douse recent reports that two of the popular talk show's pundits - conservative Elisabeth Hasselbeck and left-leaning Joy Behar - are in the midst of a feud so bitter they are no longer speaking.

The Chicago Sun-Times saysthe animosity between the two - who get into animated on-air debates about the presidential election almost daily - "has gotten so ugly, they only speak on air or when a camera is in their vicinity."

The presidential election is under two weeks away and tension is rising around the country. The set of The View may be the epicenter of political squabbling.

As usual, the show's resident hot conservative pundit, Elisabeth Hasselbeck clashed with Whoopi Goldberg and Joy Behar over Barack Obama and taxes. But apparently, that was nothing compared to a confrontation taking place after the broadcast.
