Obama will sit down with Fox News
President hoping to gain support for health care reformPresident Barack Obama is pulling out all the stops heading into the House of Representative's crucial vote on the health care reform.
To drum up last-minute support for the measure whose unpopularity has been growing, Obama will appear on Fox News Channel.
Fox News said on Tuesday that Special Report's Bret Baier will interview the President on Wednesday. The interview will air uninterrupted at 6 p.m.
"This is a real opportunity to try to get some firm answers from President Obama on lingering questions about specifics in the health care legislation, the process Democrats are using to try to pass it, and the politics of its passage," Baier said. "And it's an opportunity to try to pin the president down on a few other hot topics. We welcome the opportunity and think it will be a benefit to our viewers."
After the interview, it will be analyzed by a panel that includes Steve Hayes, A.B. Stoddard, Juan Williams and Charles Krauthammer.
The Obama administration and FNC have been in a state of cold war, with frequent accusations flying in both directions.
Obama has only made a few appearances on the channel, including a sit-down with Bill O'Reilly just before the 2008 presidential election and an interview with Major Garrett last year.
