Fox News host Sean Hannity said on Thursday night that he had been unable to book an hour-special with Republican presidential candidate Ted Cruz on his program for the last 10 days.
The conservative personality made the announcement amid accusations from Twitter followers that he was only giving airtime to billionaire Donald Trump.
Hannity said he has been trying to give the Texas senator a full hour on his cable-news show, but was told by his campaign “they could not make it work.”
A spokesperson for the Cruz campaign did note that the senator was on Hannity’s program Monday. That interview lasted about 12 minutes.
However, before that interview aired, Cruz raid response director Brian Phillips suggested it might have been the candidate’s last appearance on the show.
Later, a Fox News spokesperson told CNN that Hannity spoke with the Cruz campaign after and made peace.
