For the first time since taking the Oval Office, President Barack Obama sat down for a much-anticipated pre-game interview Sunday evening with cable news' highest-rated personality, Fox News host Bill O'Reilly.
In a relatively mild exchange, O'Reilly pressed the president to comment on a variety of topics, including the situation unfolding in Egypt and health care reform. Later the in the interview, O'Reilly asked the president to reflect on his time so far in office, asking what the "worst" part of the job was and how the job has changed him personally.
"I hope you think I'm fair to you," O'Reilly told the president, noting that he tried to be fair and balanced in his primetime commentary. But A stone-faced Obama did not hint as to whether or not he agreed:
You may recall that O'Reilly and Obama squared off once before in a much more contentious Q&A session during the final weeks of the 2008 presidential election season. This time around seemed comparatively relaxed, although O'Reilly promised to have more of his time with the president during his Monday evening broadcast of "The O'Reilly Factor" on FNC.
