During a press conference Thursday, House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi said she’s unlikely to participate in an interview with Fox News’s Bill O’Reilly after having seen his pre-Super Bowl one with President Obama.
“One of these days, it’s open ended,” Pelosi told a Fox News producer at the conference who asked about a possible O’Reilly interview, according to Politico. “One of these days maybe I will. I was not pleased with the disrespect that he showed to the president, so that wasn’t a warmer upper.”
Pelosi acknowledged that she had told O’Reilly in a recent private conversation she’s open to an interview. “But then Greta came along and I’ve known her for a very long time, so I did Greta,” she said. “And so you know, we go from one outlet to the next.”
Fox News’s Greta Van Susteren interviewed Pelosi in late January.
O’Reilly received some criticism, mostly from liberal Democrats, for his interview with Obama, in which he pressed the president on several issues like the botched “Obamacare” rollout and the IRS’s targeting of conservative groups.
