To the surprise of some, President Barack Obama has agreed to be interviewed by Fox News right before the Super Bowl. If that were not enough, the man conducting the interview will be the infamous Bill O'Reilly. The interview will be conducted as part of Fox's pregame coverage.
The decision to do such a contentious interview on one of the nation's largest stages is especially surprising given the White House's decision to freeze out Fox News during 2009. Since that time, the relationship has improved, but the White House is still concerned that Fox News has not been accurate in its coverage.
