Obama granting Super Bowl interview to Fox News
WASHINGTON (AP) - President Barack Obama will sit for an
interview with Fox News Channel host Bill O'Reilly on Super Bowl
White House spokesman Josh Earnest says it's in keeping with the
president's custom of granting a pre-game interview to the network
that is broadcasting the Super Bowl. Last year, it was with Katie
Couric on CBS.
The White House clashed openly with Fox in the first year of
Obama's administration, deriding it as aligned with the Republican
Party. More recently tensions have subsided and Obama had a
sit-down with Fox anchor Bret Baier last March.
The Super Bowl will be played in the new Cowboys Stadium in
Arlington, Texas, on Sunday, Feb. 6. The interview will be taped at
the White House.
