President Barack Obama took a couple swipes at Fox News during his pre-Superb Owl interview with Bill O’Reilly, and they were definitely heard by the folks at 1211 Avenue of the Americas. On Monday morning, Fox anchor Bret Baier and the hosts at Fox & Friends wondered if Obama’s anti-Fox comments were pre-canned to shift focus away from topics like Benghazi and the IRS scandal.
“Also clear, to use the president’s favorite word, was that he wanted to use every opportunity on all three topics before he answered to say, ‘You’re with Fox,’ as if it’s Fox’s fault,” Brian Kilmeade said.
“I suppose the back and forth was getting a little heated and that was probably baked in to some of his answers,” Baier said. “I did find it interesting that Secretary Clinton tweeted out during the game, it’s so much more fun to watch Fox when it’s someone else being blitzed and sacked. I’m not sure she was talking about the game or the O’Reilly interview. I don’t know which one. But I do think it was baked in to some of the answers beforehand.”
