At the same time, ABC News’ oversight of “The View,” which it took over in 2014, has been criticized for “Keystone cops management,” according to one ABC insider, resulting in “Game of Thrones” style feuding between hosts, multiple firings and behind the scenes turmoil.The Media Research Center emailed supporters on Thursday morning with a message titled, “Don't let ABC get away with this.” The email reiterates the offensive comments made by Behar and Hostin and states, “We need to stand up against these bullies and bigots and let them know that we will not stand for such disgraceful and prejudiced behavior.” The MRC said that “religious bigotry and hypocrisy cannot and will not be tolerated” and even posted the phone number to contact ABC News executives with complaints.Pence himself didn’t appreciate the comments and slammed ABC News Wednesday on C-SPAN.“To have ABC maintain a broadcast forum that compared Christianity to mental illness is just wrong,” Pence said.ABC News reporter Brian Ross famously helped spur a 350-point drop in the Dow Jones Industrial Average in December after he reported incorrectly on live television that fired National Security Adviser Michael Flynn would testify that Trump had ordered him to make contact with Russians about foreign policy while Trump was still a candidate.Ross issued a correction, and was then suspended for a month without pay.

When people in the world are expecting less and less of each other in dating, God isn’t.Fox News’ Todd Starnes slammed Behar in a scathing op-ed, saying it’s “understandable that a Christophobe like Behar be dumbfounded by such a concept.” Starnes added that “if hearing the voice (of) God means (you are) mentally insane” then he is crazy himself.“If ABC News wants to employ an anti-Christian bigot – that is their business,” he wrote.
