THURSDAY, SEPTEMBER 4:
Democratic presidential nominee Barack Obama enters the No Spin Zone for the first time ever

The meeting appears to have eased tensions between the two camps, which began when all the Democratic candidates, complaining that the network favors Republicans, refused to hold any primary-season debates on Fox. After resisting invitations for months, Obama now plans to appear on Bill O'Reilly's prime-time Fox program on Thursday, the night that John McCain delivers his acceptance speech at the Republican convention here.

O'Reilly's appearances with high-up politicians are always somewhat disappointing. He never really sticks it to them and he does the same butt-kissing as all the other interviewers.

Agreed, they do it for ratings. It should be somewhat interesting, though.

Sadly, politicians negoitate in advance that O'Reily will go easy on them, also, if O'Reily goes balls to the wall, politicians won't go on the show.....

This quote is interesting :wink:
The talk turned to "The O'Reilly Factor," and Obama said he would appear on the show before the election. Ailes says he told the senator that there would be no "embarrassing or underhanded stuff" in the interview and that if he had any overall concerns about Fox's treatment in the future, he should call Ailes directly.

Phil is right. I bet a months rent Bill had to concede to be a fluff interview to get him on. Will watch the replay at 11pm but not expecting much.
