RESTON, VA -- Media Research Center (MRC) Founder and President Brent Bozell released the following statement on Thursday in the wake of the news that View co-host Joy Behar had privately apologized to Vice President Mike Pence for her hateful, anti-Christian remarks from February 13. Bozell described the act as a “good first step,” but called for a public apology. He confirmed that the MRC’s campaign to hold ABC’s advertisers accountable will continue.
It is a good first step that Joy Behar privately apologized to Vice President Pence, but it is not nearly enough. Behar and ABC need to publicly apologize for the bigoted slurs on ‘The View.’ The bigoted statements made about the Vice President's Christian faith offended hundreds of millions of Christians across the country, the largest faith group in the United States. Their apology should therefore be as public as their insult. When they do that, this whole matter will be put to rest. Until they do, we will not let up our campaign to let the world -- including their advertisers -- know of their anti-Christian bigotry.
