Super Bowl Sunday, 2011 “festivities” will include an interview of president Obama by Bill O’Reilly, conservative commentator, and one of the most egregious perpetrators of today’s politics as blood sport (see Tucson, AZ for long-term fallout). I guess that lowers political discourse to a sporting event. More win-lose in a field that should be about hammering out differences.
And if they’re going to broadcast a high-profile interview with the president, couldn’t Fox News come up with someone a little more thoughtful in his approach to interviews and politics? Shepard Smith?
