ABC News received over 30k angry calls after Joy Behar showcased her anti-Christain bias.
ABC has received at least 30,000 calls since the Media Research Center began a campaign to hold “View” co-hosts accountable for spewing “anti-Christian bigotry,” but it doesn’t look like the network plans to take action.
Co-hosts Sunny Hostin and Joy Behar mocked Vice President Pence’s Christian faith earlier this month on “The View,” and MRC President Brent Bozell published an open letter to ABC News calling for an apology.
ABC had received 30,588 calls as of Wednesday morning, and angry viewers have also reached out to the chat show’s advertisers, including Clorox, Gerber, Oreo and Home Advisor. The advertisers have received no fewer than 6,000 calls, according to the MRC.
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.
Here are the comments that were made
Back on Feb. 13, the panel criticized Pence’s faith when Hostin said, “I don’t know that I want my vice president, um — speaking in tongues and having Jesus speak to him.”
Co-host Joy Behar chimed in, adding that hearing from Jesus is actually called “mental illness.” Pence himself didn’t appreciate the comments and slammed ABC News.
“To have ABC maintain a broadcast forum that compared Christianity to mental illness is just wrong,” Pence said during an appearance on C-SPAN following the controversial remarks. “It is simply wrong for ABC to have a television program that expresses that kind of religious intolerance.”
Joy Behar is about as big of a fraud as it gets. This is the same lady who walked off set when Bill O’Reilly accurately pointed out the fact that Muslims committed the terror attacks on 9/11 and that it wasn’t a good idea to put a mosque close to ground zero.
