Obama: Fox News Is Unfair To Me

Noah Rothman reports at Mediaite:

On Monday, Bill O’Reilly played portions of his interview with Obama that were not broadcast on Sunday which revealed details of the president’s thinking on the Keystone XL Pipeline, the cultural issues facing African-American families, and how Fox News covers the White House. O’Reilly asked Obama about the large number of children being born to unwed black mothers. “Why isn’t there a campaign to address that problem very explicitly?” he asked. “Actually, Bill, we address it explicitly all the time,” Obama replied. “So, whether it’s getting publicity or not is a whole different question.” O’Reilly said that he does not see the federal government acting to address this issue. Obama replied that the public and private sector are focused on this problem. “There is an economic component to it as well, though,” he said. Obama added that this is a problem that is increasingly being seen in “white, working-class homes.” Turning to the issue of Fox News Channel’s coverage of the president, O’Reilly asked Obama if he thought he was unfair in his coverage of the president. “Absolutely,” Obama replied. “Of course you are, Bill. But I like you anyway.”
