In the second part of the Super Bowl interview between President Obama and Bill O’Reilly, which aired Monday night, the president pulled no punches on Fox News’ coverage of him.
“Absolutely,” Obama said in response to whether O’Reilly is unfair to him. “Of course you are, Bill. But I like you anyway.”
When O’Reilly asked the president to cite an example, Obama pointed out the interview they just had, and how O’Reilly focused on all negative stories that are “defined by you guys in a certain way.”
“Regardless of whether it is fair or not, it has made Fox News very successful,” the president said, adding some advice for the network: “Here’s what you guys are gonna have to figure out: what are you gonna do when I’m gone?”
