(KNX 1070) -- The co-creator of "Modern Family" is walking back his announcement that he's leaving Fox Television. Steve Levitan tweeted he was leaving Fox because of his anger with Fox News. Now Levitan says he'll wait to see what happens, after a possible merger.

But some big TV names are speaking out against Fox.      

Hollywood Reporter editor-at-large Kim Masters tells KNX, this is exactly what the owners of Fox wanted to avoid. 

Judd Apatow and Seth McFarlane have called on Fox TV show-runners and stars to speak out against how Fox News has covered the immigration crisis.
