    ABC News’ “The View” star Joy Behar has reportedly apologized for recent comments that mocked Vice President Pence’s Christian faith. Disney CEO Bob Iger said during the Q&A portion of a shareholder meeting on Thursday that Behar apologized directly to Pence on the phone. A source close to Pence confirmed to Fox News that Behar did apologize. The shareholder who asked the question was Justin Danhof, who is the general counsel for the National Center for Public Policy Research. Danhof told Iger that some of Disney’s recent decisions are “strange when trust in media is at an all-time low” and...

    “The Democrats made a huge mistake by chastising the Trump supporters, and that was disgusting to me,” the Oscar-winner said. “Of course they’re not going to vote for Hillary Clinton; they’re going to vote for Donald Trump. You laughed at them when their plight is very real.” Lawrence also revealed how President Trump’s victory invigorated her interest in politics. The Hunger Games star said she’s liberal and previously opted not to alienate huge swathes of her audience — as well as her Kentucky-based family and friends, who she admits don’t like her left-wing politics. “I’ve always thought that it was...

    Trump’s State of the Union address on Tuesday was met with widespread approval from most of the country, but many Democrats, liberals, progressives, and other longtime opponents of the president were unmoved by the speech. One exception to this general trend in the media sphere was Republican pollster Frank Luntz, who tweeted his approval of many different aspects of Trump’s speech before concluding: Tonight, I owe Donald Trump an apology. Tonight, I was moved and inspired. Tonight, I have hope and faith in America again. It may go away tomorrow…But tonight, America is great again. #SOTU— Frank Luntz (@FrankLuntz) January...

    *snip* From Luntz, on Twitter: “Tonight, I owe Donald Trump an apology. Tonight, I was moved and inspired. Tonight, I have hope and faith in America again. It may go away tomorrow. But tonight, America is great again. #SOTU.” The fawning didn’t stop there. “Even in foreign policy and national security,” Luntz wrote in a separate tweet, “this speech [is] a perfect blend of strength and empathy. These heroic stories break our hearts, but sturdy our resolve. This is the Trump his voters wanted him to be. #SOTU.” And this: ‘This speech represents the presidential performance that Trump observers have...

    Liberal elite magazine Vanity Fair says it is very sorry it offended its subscriber base by suggesting Hillary Clinton move on with life and take up new hobbies like knitting.

"It was an attempt at humor and we regret that it missed the mark," Beth Kseniak, a spokeswoman for Vanity Fair said Wednesday. The video can still be found on Twitter. Clinton supporters were so angry over incident that they...

    Well, that didn't take long for her to get her mind right. It only took a few hours from the time Mika Brzezinksi on Friday's Morning Joe criticized the sexual harassment accusers of Mark Halperin for not meeting with him personally to apologizing for it later that afternoon. Seeing your own career starting to slip away can be a powerful incentive for producing an apology. Mika's dramatic U-turn concerning former colleague Halperin was a result of this statement: "Mark Halperin is more than willing to meet with his accusers and apologize with them face-to-face. I've actually tried to offer him...

    MSNBC host Joy Reid apologized for blog posts she wrote from 2007 to 2009 that used language criticized as homophobic to mock former Florida Gov.

As a writer, I pride myself on a facility with language — an economy of words or at least some wisdom in the selection,” Reid said in a statement provided to TheWrap. “However, that clearly has not always been the case.”...

    The Latvian conductor Mariss Jansons, of the Bavarian Radio Symphony Orchestra has quickly retracted a remark made to a Telegraph interviewer in which he said that women conductors ‘are not my cup of tea’. In a statement on Friday he said: ‘I come from a generation in which the conducting profession was almost exclusively reserved to men. Even today, many more men than women pursue conducting professionally. ‘But it was undiplomatic, unnecessary and counterproductive for me to point out that I’m not yet accustomed to seeing women on the conducting platform. ‘Every one of my female colleagues and every young...
