However, as he promised, Prez O is stepping into the ClusterFox Den of Faux News:
President Barack Obama will sit down with Fox News’ Major Garrett for an exclusive interview next week, ending months of bickering between the White House and the network that kept the president mostly off its airwaves.
The news that Obama would join Garrett during the president’s upcoming trip to Asia arrives hours after then-Communications Director Anita Dunn — who first voiced criticism of the Fox franchise — announced she would soon depart her position.
He’ll do great, no doubt about that. But the Foxers will manage to isolate quotes and edit the interview down to whatever negative piece of propaganda that suits them. No doubt about that either.
UPDATE (h/t: smassing):
A White House official tells POLITICO that the report is “not accurate.” “We’ve not committed to doing any presidential interviews during the trip to Asia with any outlets at this point,” the official said.
But they will eventually, because they said so. So there.
