Bill O’Reilly Dishes on His Super Bowl Interview With President Obama

Yahoo Celebrity

Bill O'Reilly is set to interview President Obama during the Fox Super Bowl pregame show for the second time (the first was in 2011), and "The Insider" co-anchor Kevin Frazier sat down with Bill to get the scoop on what we can expect to see during the big showdown.

The Fox anchor revealed that this time around, he plans on taking a different approach to the interview. He revealed, "I will approach things differently because there's a record now, there's a whole bunch of controversies now, and my job is to clear them up and I will." He added, "I think the president and I have a pretty good understanding. I think he'll answer my questions. They are going to be very direct. My questions are going to be very simple, because, as you know, Kevin, I'm a simple man alright, and I think he'll answer them. … We're going to clear up a lot of confusion in the interview."

And when Kevin asked Bill how he thinks the president will react to his line of questioning, he simply stated, "I think he knows who I am, he knows after all this time who I am. He's a cool guy, he'll be cool."

Bill even revealed how the interview came to fruition, explaining, "I ran into him at the Kennedy Center Honors, you know, when I did that thing for Herbie Hancock, and I said, 'Hey we got to do the Super Bowl interview again,' and he said, 'Yeah, sure!' and I said, 'Great!' and we booked it."

So who will benefit more from the interview — Bill or the president? "I don't know," Bill replied. "I don't go into it like that. My job is to get information for the folks. So I'm going to get information for the folks."
