Obama Slams Fox News In Bill O'Reilly Interview
The Huffington Post  |  By Ashley Alman   
Posted: 02/02/2014 5:11 pm EST  |  Updated: 02/02/2014 5:59 pm EST

President Barack Obama took a shot at Fox News in an interview with the network's Bill O’Reilly ahead of the Super Bowl XLVIII matchup between the Denver Broncos and the Seattle Seahawks.

O'Reilly brought up the Benghazi and IRS scandals that have, in many ways, plagued Obama's presidency. The Fox News host accused Obama of distracting from the scandals to protect his image and campaign.

“Your detractors believe that you did not tell the world [Benghazi] was a terror attack because your campaign didn’t want that out,” O’Reilly said. “That’s what they believe.”

“And they believe it because folks like you tell them that,” Obama said. "These kinds of things keep on surfacing in part because you and your TV station will promote them."

Prior to the interview, O’Reilly told Fox’s Megyn Kelly that he was “not nervous.”

“He is not a bad guy, I think people misread him,” he said. “However, my interview this time is going to be very precise.”

Agree. Obama only agreed because he knew Billy the 'suck up' would give him a pass. For all of his self blown bluster about how 'tough' he is, when it comes to Washington power, he is a big of a kiss-ass as McCain is.

O'Reilly blew this interview even worse than his last one with Obummer. O didn't answer any of the questions and Bill gave him a pass. I imagine the excuse will be that O'Reilly has respect for the office, and it wasn't appropriate to 'badger' him. Bill's as much a narcissist as is Barry.

Now watch. In between when Bill is not selling books or promoting his own self glorifying trinkets, which is his primary topic, he will talk on and on about this interview for a month or more. All the while he will be touting how 'tough' and 'smart' and 'intellectual' he himself is.
 
I know this guy. That is exactly what he is going to do. It is what he always does.

They were defending O'Reilly this morning on Glenn Beck, calling it impossible to get straight answers from a liar in a 10 minute interview on his turf.

IMO, the fault is entirely with O'Reilly, and it was his enormous ego, combined with his naivte about Obama that caused him to do this interview in the first place.

It was a BIG mistake, because O'Reilly allowed the Liar in Chief a platform to continue his bullying of anyone who disagrees with him.

The only hope was that a few more people have started to see through Obama, and his poll numbers will go down even further.

Otherwise this interview was a complete disaster, and it was ALL O'Reilly's fault.
Character still matters.  It always matters.

May 3, 2016 - the day the Republican party left ME.  I am now without a Party, and quite possibly without a country.  May God have mercy!

I like your take, ML.

And another thing....Bill O'Reilly may be compelled to to change his POV on the man and not always predispose good intentions coming from the Prez.

And if he feels that Obama scored points while making him look bad/weak....it could be time for a bowl of popcorn tonight at 8PM   :laugh:

Do you think O'Reilly's ego will allow him to admit he's been wrong about Obama?  It will be interesting to observe.

In the part of the interview I heard, the punk blamed Bill directly for misleading people about Ben Ghazi.

I would think the bloviator might not let that one slip by, and I totally concur that it could provide some entertaining viewing at 8 tonight!

O'Reilly was just Fox defending himself. He said he got what he set out to do, and that was to ask tough questions. He forgot to mention that he didn't try to get Obama to answer them, and let him off easily. He said just what we expected him to say. I reckon he will gain lib viewers and lose conservatives. /s

I think I heard Rush say today that O'Reilly this morning said Obama was a good guy.

If so, he's not only an egotist...............he's nuts.

He's stupid if the believes Obama and thinks he's a nice guy, so not worth watching the dummy. If he's lying, another reason not to watch O'Reilly.

While O'Reilly can annoy the heck out of me - for many of the reasons cited on this thread and others - I am not as down on him as many are here. 
For the progressive, there is very little to love about the United States. Washington, Jefferson, Madison? A bunch of rotten slaveholders, hypocrites, and cowards even when their hearts were in the right places. The Declaration of Independence? A manifesto for the propertied classes. The Constitution? An artifact of sexism and white supremacy. The sacrifices in the great wars of the 20th century? Feeding the poor and the disenfranchised into the meat-grinder of imperialism. The gifts of Carnegie, Rockefeller, Vanderbilt, Morgan, Astor? Blood money from self-aggrandizing robber barons. Nat Rev

One must and should take into account that he's the #1 show on prime time cable for over a decade.

Once you reconcile that fact, you understand the public statement is not necessarily his private feeling on the matter.

He's a friend of Dennis Miller.  That says a lot more about that his public statement on Obama.

Because there was nothing else opposite his time slot worth watching, that is changing - the Blaze network is growing and Real News is on opposite BOR and much more worth watching than listening to BOR cut everyone off in mid sentence and blow his own horn.
