Last month Behar derided Pence for saying he communicates with Jesus through prayer. It's another thing when Jesus talks to you. "It's another thing when Jesus talks to you", added Behar.

The Disney CEO also told the shareholders that he was happy to learn that Behar finally apologized because he said that he "takes exception" to her statement. "That's part of my faith experience.' But I did encourage her and I'm still encouraging her, to use the forum of that program or some other public forum, to apologize to tens of millions of Americans who were equally offended". Pence said was happy that Behar had apologized to him personally, but wanted her to apologize to all Christians.

"So I think Vice President Pence is right", Behar said.

"I just think it demonstrates how out-of-touch some in the mainstream media are with the faith and values of the American people", he said.

While Behar called to apologize to Pence, he decided it wasn't enough. "I'm a great admirer of Mike Pence and his family", she said. "She picked up the phone".

Iger responded by saying, "I don't know where I start".

The controversial remarks were made on "The View" by Behar on February 13.

"It's just simply wrong for ABC to have a television program that expresses that kind of religious intolerance", Pence responded a day later.

The Spanish side had the better of the first leg, but a combination of De Gea's saves and poor finishing left them frustrated. I actually watched a lot of this first leg and Besiktas didn't do badly to start with but then the game exploded on them.

MRC President Brent Bozell issued a statement declaring that Behar's private apology was "not almost enough" and promised to continue his campaign against "anti-Christian bigotry" at the network. "She made a call to him and apologized, which I thought was absolutely appropriate". While speaking with Hannity, he suggested that Behar apologize publicly on The View.

The apology was reportedly confirmed by Fox News.

"She apologized to the vice president, he accepted and said he wasn't offended by her comment for his own sake but on behalf of the millions of evangelicals who watch ABC and her show", the source wrote in an email.
