Larry Kudlow, who was last week named a White House adviser, addressed his appointment last week on CNBC, where he has worked for 25 years. Speaking of the change, leaving CNBC for the White House, he said that “however this thing works out, it will be God’s will.”

Then, MSNBC host Stephanie Ruhle commented March 15, “That’s an interesting way to talk about being the national economic adviser to the president. ‘God’s will?’

Kudlow then tweeted a link to a story about Ruhle’s comment, writing, “Sneering at faith, and God’s will, @Sruhle @MSNBC. Why still on air? She apparently believes people in business & economics should not have faith.”

After criticism, Ruhle tweeted an apology saying “I meant no offense when discussing @Larry_kudlow’s WH appointment. I apologize if my comments came off as dismissive of his faith. I would never question another person’s believe [sic] in God.”

iMediaEthics has written to MSNBC to ask if there was any on air comment or statement about the apology or controversy.
