Fox to Include President Obama in Super Bowl Pregame

It’s becoming a tradition:

The pro football playoffs begin this weekend, but Fox Sports is already making sure there’ll be solid television ratings no matter what teams make it to the Super Bowl on Feb. 6.

That’s because conservative Fox News talk show host Bill O’Reilly will be interviewing President Obama during the pre-game show, the White House confirmed today.

When other networks broadcast the game in Obama’s first two years in office, NBC had host Matt Lauer (2009) conduct the sit-down, while Katie Couric handled it last year for CBS.

O’Reilly, who interviewed Obama during the 2009 presidential campaign believes he gave Obama the toughest interview of anyone during that election. Unclear whether he’ll be that tough this time around.
