Gingrich Rips 'GCB': ABC Wouldn't Run Show if Muslim in Title Instead of Christian

Republican presidential candidate Newt Gingrich had some harsh words Friday for ABC and its new show GCB.

As The Note reported, the former Speaker told supporters at a campaign event in Gulfport, Mississippi, "Take the exact name, drop out 'Christian' and put in 'Muslim,’ and ask yourself is there any network that would have dared to run a show like that and you know the answer is not a one":

“Look at the new show that’s on that has the word ‘Christian’ in it, and I want you to take the exact name, drop out Christian and put in ‘Muslim.’ And ask yourself is their [sic] any network that would have dared to run a show like that and you know the answer is not a one, because anti-Christian bigotry is just fine in the entertainment industry but they have to be very protective of Islam,” Gingrich said.

Indeed.
