O'Reilly Lands Obama Super Bowl Interview

Fox News host Bill O'Reilly will interview Pres. Obama on Super Bowl Sunday, Fox News sources confirmed.

Details about when the Feb. 6 interview will be taped and when it will air are still unclear.

Despite his administration's criticism of Fox News, the president has appeared on the network several times. In March of last year, Obama was interviewed by Bret Baier in what turned into a highly contentious exchange about health care reform.

Obama also gave a lengthy interview to O'Reilly during the campaign in September 2008. O'Reilly interviewed Obama and aired it in a four part segment during the Republican National Convention.

National Journal's own Major Garrett was the last FOX broadcaster to interview Obama during Super Bowl Sunday -- the last time the network had the rights to the game, in 2008.
