Newly hired at MSNBC, Abby Huntsman already earning praise

Updated:

By: Jamshid Ghazi Askar, Deseret News

Less than a month ago Abby Huntsman accepted a position as co-host of the MSNBC show “The Cycle,” and already Huntsman's work at MSNBC is generating positive coverage from multiple media outlets.

In the op-ed “Feminism evolves for a new era” published in Monday's New York Daily News, columnist Stanley Crouch wrote that Huntsman is “redefining feminism for our time.”

“Huntsman wants the Republican Party, her Republican Party, to sensibly get with today, to tune out the extremists who have taken over the party,” Crouch continued.

Last week, media watchdog Mediaite gave kudos to Huntsman after she called out Fox News pundit Erick Erickson for derisively dubbing a Texas legislator “abortion Barbie.”

"It’s stupidity … (Erickson) wants the people to get excited about that and rally behind him," Huntsman said while being interviewed on Martin Bashir’s MSNBC program. "What he clearly doesn’t care about is the future of the Republican Party that clearly has a serious problem with women (because) that language isn’t going to invite women into the party."
