* BadassPacifist: This is a woman who has reported out of just about every media-unfriendly or survival-unfriendly nation you can think of offhand. This is a woman who has evaded the Chinese government in Tibet and smuggled a tape out of the country in her shirt. This is a woman who has stared down the North Koreans ''twice'' and walked away with what she wanted both times. This is a woman who reported on the drug war on the US/Mexico border, including a segment on how other journalists had been threatened or killed for reported on the same subject, just to get her mind off the fact that her sister was being held in North Korea. This is a woman who will walk right into a gang-run prison in El Salvador despite rumors that she could very well be kidnapped in the process. And she doesn't believe in violence. (Not that there isn't the very rare case where she wouldn't mind seeing it, but by the time she gets to that point, the pitchforks and torches have long since come out from everyone else.)

Lisa is currently the host of Series/OurAmericaWithLisaLing, a documentary series on OWN. During her tenure, she took a side job as host of The Job, a job-interview reality competition on CBS, but it only lasted two episodes before getting cancelled due to a combination of getting assigned the FridayNightDeathSlot, some rather major UnfortunateImplications that implied that society was getting to the point where you'd basically have to go on a reality show just to find basic employment in America (the jobs on offer pulled down salaries in about the $50,000/year range, far short of the amounts offered by competing shows), and some alleged improper questions being asked in the interviews themselves.

* TooSoon: The incident that more or less led to her leaving The View. She had a principle of trying to say one thing per show that got people to think, even if it was something that made them want to throw something at the screen. Boy, did that ever happen after 9/11. She commented, "What happened to the United States was a catastrophic event and the worst terrorist attack in human history. Yet maybe before we seek revenge, we should ask the question why should anyone want to make such an attack on the U.S.?" In hindsight, a very reasonable thing to say. During America's grieving period, though, a lot of viewers were in no mood to hear it. Some of the viewers wrote in telling her to [[AllAsiansAreAlike "go back to China".]] Over a decade later, though, there are no hard feelings.
