The New Agenda publicly calls for an apology from Joy Behar

by

In a story over at The Daily Caller, The New Agenda joins others in calling for an on-air apology from Joy Behar (see video in blog story below):

Amy Siskind, president of the feminist group The New Agenda, told The Daily Caller she was appalled by Behar’s language calling it sexist and insulting.

“I think the remarks are completely and utterly unacceptable and I think she should — by tomorrow — be on the air with an apology to Sharron Angle and to the women of this country,” Siskind said. “The ‘b-word’ has no place in our national dialogue, and especially when she was using it in a very pointed way here to demean another woman.”

Conservative women’s group, Kitchen Cabinet also joined The New Agenda is this demand, as did blogger Joni Hudson-Reynolds, a self-described African-American mom.

Sadly, the progressive women’s organizations contacted by the reporter at The Daily Caller would not join the call for an apology.

Siskind concludes:

“She should be ashamed of herself. She truly should…And if she cannot apologize I think The View should really consider whether she is appropriate for that kind of show,” Siskind concluded.
