Barack Obama and Bill O’Reilly have plans to get together during the pre-Super Bowl festivities for something that hasn’t happened since Obama became president–an O’Reilly interview of Obama. The interview will air as part of Fox’s pregame lineup, Mediaite.com reports.
This marks the first time Obama will have sat down for an interview with O’Reilly since his inauguration, although the pair did participate in an interview toward the end of Obama’s campaign for president.
The decision to sit down with the right-leaning O’Reilly is seen "as a very smart move for the president," with O’Reilly perhaps one of the most moderate of the personalities on the Fox News Channel, the article says.
The Fox Broadcast Network will air the Super Bowl Feb. 6.
