SEAN HANNITY (HOST): Now, the Trump people will tell you, and I'll ask Don and Eric about this later, they're going to tell you, well it's a press release that Fox put out and in the press release it was insulting to Mr. Trump. I didn't take it that way and maybe it's because I know the people at Fox pretty well. My take on that, you know the, when it mentioned Putin and the Ayatollah, et cetera et cetera. Remember Trump yesterday was putting out a Twitter question, which was whether he should attend the Fox debate. I took that as kind of a good humored ribbing. Now I don't think any news organization is going to allow candidates or one candidate in this particular case to pick who the moderator is and if they do set that precedent up, then there is going to be nothing but chaos is future presidential debates.    


HANNITY: I think you've got to look at any network in the big picture that Donald Trump has been on Fox News Channel and the Fox Business Channel 132 times since that debate. That's a lot of appearances. And that means, he's been on with me, my colleague Greta Van Susteren, Bret Baier, Neil Cavuto, Bill O'Reilly, Fox & Friends, and I have not seen or read about an appearance where Mr. Trump was not been treated fairly.
