On his nationally syndicated radio talk show “The Mark Levin Show” on Monday, host Mark Levin challenged CNN’s Chief Media Correspondent and Anchor of Reliable Sources Brian Stelter to a debate, saying, “Let’s go nose to nose” on this program.

“Mr. Producer, will you invite Brian Stelter on this program?” asked Mark Levin. “Tell him I want to debate this with him on this program, and tell him, Mark said, ‘Like a man, come on the program.’

“‘No, Mark should come on my TV show,’ Levin mocked. “I said, come on this program. It’s a long format program, and let’s go nose to nose.”

Mark Levin’s remarks came after CNN’s Brian Stelter complained over the weekend that the news networks aren’t anti-Trump enough, suggesting that “many in the media are ‘tiptoeing around Trump’s instability’” and “that the ABC, CBS and NBC evening newscasts are just not anti-Trump enough and as vicious as CNN and MSNBC are,” according to NewsBusters.org.

Below is a transcript, in pertinent part, of Mark Levin’s comments from his show on Monday:

Mark Levin: “Let’s go to cut seven, go.”

Brian Stelter: “Why does he lie so often? Is there a method to the madness, or is something wrong?”

Levin: “See, listen to this.

“How— You know, again, I’m old enough o remember that there’s no way a guy like this would be on television. There’s no way any news room, out of its own survival and self-respect—and respect for them, which was sort of a quasi-profession. Of course, now it’s not a profession at all—that they would never, ever allow a clown like this to perform on their news platform. There’s no way. And yet he’s one of several.

“Go ahead.”

Stelter: “Is he suffering from some sort of illness? You see, it’s questions, questions and more questions. No satisfying answers.”

Levin: “Mr. Producer, will you invite Brian Stelter on this program? Tell him I want to debate this with him on this program, and tell him, Mark said, ‘Like a man, come on the program.’

“‘No, Mark should come on my TV show.’ I said, come on this program. It’s a long format program, and let’s go nose to nose. Let’s do it.

“He won’t do it. I hope he does, but he won’t.”
