Disney Exec Tells Shareholders Behar Apologized For Anti-Christian Remark

Disney Exec Tells Shareholders Behar Apologized For Anti-Christian Remark”

But he thinks Jesus tells him to say things.

Ms. Behar's February 19 clarification on Mr. Pence's faith featured her telling a studio audience, "I don't mean to offend people but apparently I keep doing it".

"I don't know where I start". The Media Research Center and its supporters left ABC with over 30,000 messages regarding their frustration with ABC and The View's veteran co-host's response to zealotic faith being a "mental illness".

While The View's Joy Behar is one of daytime television's boldest talk show hosts, she apologized for something controversial that recently came out of her mouth.

"To have ABC maintain a broadcast forum that compared Christianity to mental illness is just wrong", Pence shared.

"I happen to take exception with what she said". "It demonstrates how out of touch some in the mainstream media are with the faith and values of the American people".

A March 2011 interview on ABC News, however, showed her to be agnostic.

The MRC, which says it's "America's leading media watchdog in documenting, exposing and neutralizing liberal media bias", posted contact information for 14 of the ABC News program's advertisers as well as the president of ABC.

On Thursday, more than three weeks after "The View" episode aired, top officials at Disney, which owns ABC, addressed the issue during the question and answer portion of a shareholder meeting. The question was asked by Justin Danhof of the National Center for Public Policy Research, a conservative group based in Washington, DC.

Danhof, during the Q&A, also told the Disney boss that ESPN had become "24/7 anti-President Donald Trump tirade channel".

Specifically, do you think that having a Christian faith is akin to a risky mental illness?

ABC News' "The View" star Joy Behar has reportedly apologized for recent comments that mocked Vice President Pence's Christian faith.

Here are Behar's original comments on Pence and his faith, which she walked back by saying "it was a joke."

A White House source close to the vice president confirmed to The Hill that Behar had apologized to Pence.

"Yes, she did speak to Vice President Pence, they had a great, very nice conversation", manager Bill Stankey said. "He understood that Joy wasn't attacking anybody and that there was some miscommunication".

A spokeswoman for Pence could not immediately be reached for comment.
