Meghan McCain's security blanket at ABC has left the building.
Last week, ABC News president James Goldston shocked many when he announced he was leaving the network. The announcement, sources tell Page Six, is very worrisome for Meghan.
"She should be very nervous now. Her cover has left the building," one source said.
During her time on "The View," Meghan has had controversial opinions, and she's been a target of her co-hosts, particularly Joy Behar, who said she "did not" miss Meghan while the new mom was out on maternity leave.
The now-former ABC exec, who was in charge of daytime programming, was supposedly a Meghan fan and consistently stood in her corner.
"[James] has for years been seen as a Meghan McCain apologist. She's used him as leverage against other talent," an ABC insider claimed, "He's been Meghan's voice in the room. He's taken on Whoopi in defense of Meghan McCain."
The exec had even reportedly gone so far as to tell people to "get over it" when they disagreed with Meghan's viewpoint or sometimes brash delivery.
One source, though, said James wasn't as close with Meghan as many thought.
"He's certainly not her defender. Ally would not be the word," that source said. "Things happen and there are continued steps to solve them. Issues get addressed."
An ABC spokesman said Meghan's future at "The View" isn't tied to James at all.
"This is ridiculous. This combo of co-hosts has 'The View' delivering our best numbers in seven years," the rep said. "Meghan is a valued member of the team and no one is talking about any changes to the table."
The new report comes less than a month after the Daily Mail said Meghan's "View" gig isn't as secure as it once was.
"'The View' did better ratings with Meghan being gone. For years people claimed that viewers tuned in for her craziness, but the numbers showed us otherwise," a source told The Daily Mail on Jan. 8. "The show actually broke a record during her maternity leave and now she realizes that she doesn't have the job security that she once did. All of that has her shook."
