Talk radio host and author of “The Liberty Amendments,” Mark Levin criticized “neophytes” on the Fox News Channel for some of their criticisms of Ted Cruz on Monday.
Levin began by saying “I am a huge fan of the Fox News Channel, particularly certain hosts,” but he added “I have to wonder, if Ronald Reagan were running in 1976, starting in 75 against Gerald Ford, how most the people on Fox would treat him. Because, to my great dismay, as I was preparing for the program, I had my favorite cable network on, and a number of the people were trashing Ted Cruz, not enough experience, he’s too young, too conservative, needs a bigger tent, he’s down in the polls. These people are neophytes, neophytes, they have never fought in Republican primaries for conservative candidates…and I am convinced if Reagan were alive today and Gerald Ford were alive today, and we were doing a re-run of 1975-76, Reagan would be trashed all over our favorite cable channel.”
Levin also stated that “several people” on FNC “know who they want, they want Jeb Bush, I don’t know why they just don’t say it.”
