Barack Obama, Bill O'Reilly Face Off In Super Bowl Interview On FOX

Finally, the matchup we've been waiting months for. Two super powers are going head to head and there will be no survivors. That's right: it's Obama vs. O'Reilly in the fight for media supremacy.

Sports Illustrated's Richard Deitsch has confirmed that President Barack Obama will enter "The No Spin Zone" on Fox's super-mega pregame extravaganza between 1:30 PM and 2 PM.

The big question will be content. If the interview is just twelve minutes of fluff, asking Obama who he favors in the Super Bowl or who he thinks will be the MVP, then it's just a complete waste of time. What I'm looking for is O'Reilly to really delve into the interviews and, if you've ever seen O'Reilly's show, you know that it shouldn't be that big of a worry.

O'Reilly says, on his personal blog, that he has to be on top of his game to make this interview a success:

On Sunday, I can ask the president valid questions, but he doesn't have to answer them. He can say what he wants. If I interrupt him too much, I look like a dope. And with only 12 minutes to work with, I have to frame my questions with precision. The president is an eloquent man; he can easily run out the clock if he wants to. Also, the interview is live, so there's no editing. In other words, there's nowhere to hide if things don't go well.

As long as we can get these two men, who are the leaders of their own respective sides, dive into the issues that really matter, every viewer, no matter your own personal political feelings, will come out a winner in this interview.
