(Newser) – So what did Bill O’Reilly and President Obama talk about during their much-anticipated sit-down today? Egypt, health care reform, Obama’s presidential experience, and, of course, football (Obama wouldn't predict a Super Bowl winner, but said the teams are pretty evenly matched). Mediaite has the full interview, and notes that both men actually seemed to be enjoying themselves, even when they disagreed. And the conversation will continue: The president answered more questions, which O’Reilly will show tomorrow on The O’Reilly Factor. Click for more on the interview.

I was totally disappointed in the President giving o'really the interview,at the same time I admire his being a President for ALL in allowing this interview. What I expected to happen did indeed happen,o'reall has no respect for the President or the Office of the Presidency ,by his interruption of the President when he was speaking,this was totally unacceptable ,but the norm for this race baiting,race monger bill o'really

This should not be a surprise. It is easy to watch Bill O'Reilly on TV and assume he believes these things. It is easy to forget that he is playing a character in order to make money. He is playing a character just as much as Steven Colbert. He approached that interview in the way that he thought it would give the best results for him.
