President Joe Biden has not yet committed to a pre-Super Bowl interview with Fox News, a person at the channel familiar with the matter said, a move that suggests the Democrat may buck the tradition of granting the network broadcasting the big game an interview. “We don’t have a formal no, but we are operating like it’s not happening,” the person familiar with the matter explained to CNN on Thursday evening.
This year, Fox is airing the Super Bowl, which would mean that Fox News would be in line for an interview. Typically, such interviews are conducted on the Friday before the Super Bowl and are agreed to much further in advance so that logistics can be coordinated. Biden has sat down for at least two interviews this week, one with PBS NewsHour and another with Telemundo, which would make the potential snub all the more notable.

The tradition began in 2004 when George W. Bush interviewed with CBS News before the game. Trump blew off the interview in 2018 when NBC had the game.
Biden has not granted Fox News a single interview during his presidency, and it doesn’t appear he’ll be breaking that streak for the Super Bowl https://t.co/0AGIjjglxi
