Obama accuses Fox of being 'absolutely unfair to him' in second part of O'Reilly interview

President Barack Obama called Fox News  Channel host Bill O’Reilly ‘absolutely’ unfair to him during a contentious  interview aired Monday night.

The response came during the second part of  an interview that originally aired during Fox's Super Bowl pregame show after  O’Reilly asked if the president felt the controversial network was unfair to him  and his administration.

‘Absolutely, of course you are, Bill. But I  like you anyway,’ Obama said before combatively adding ‘we just went through an  interview in which you asked about health care not working, IRS, were we wholly  corrupt, Benghazi.’

 

The president rattled the items off while  extending a different finger for each one and cracking a sarcastic grin.

'But these are unanswered questions,'  O'Reilly insisted.

Obama and the bombastic host also clashed  during the prime time interview over the number of jobs  the Keystone XL oil pipeline, which would carry crude oil from Canada to  American refineries, will add to the economy.

O’Reilly claimed it would add 42,000 jobs,  the president immediately dismissed the notion.

‘It's not 42,000. That's that that's not  correct,’ Obama sharply responded. ‘It's a couple thousand to build the  pipeline.’

Only a fraction of that lower number will be  needed to operate and maintain the pipeline, should it be built.
