Newsmax quotes Dick Morris as saying the following on The Steve Malzberg Show:
Roger Ailes, the head of Fox News, was [President George H.W.] Bush's main guy and main strategist. I first met Roger in 1988 when he and I worked together on Bush 41's campaign and worked on the negative ads that sank [Michael] Dukakis.
The Bush family has always been intimate with Fox News, and they are protecting Jeb Bush.
"Fox's allegiance to Jeb Bush, the former governor of Florida, is why [Megyn] Kelly purposely went after Trump in the first debate, Morris believes," Newsmax reports.
"She never would've done that if she hadn't gotten encouraged from upstairs," Morris said, according to Newsmax. "That's why Trump is correct for not going on there. They are set up for Bush."
As Morris sees it, "As soon as conservatives around the country realize that, which they will as they listen to the biased coverage, the better."
