Disgraceful Interview: Fox News Interviews President Obama and Keep Interrupting Him..Won't Let Him Get a Word In (Video)



I am so disgusted at what I am seeing and I want you to chime in. I want as many of you to chime in as you can, because I for one am tired of seeing my President, our President Barack Obama be blatantly disrespected in a way that no other President has been before. And in spite of all that, he still rises to each occasion with the grace, dignity, and professionalism that we should all mirror in all facets of our life. [video at bottom of this post]

It's no secret that Fox News dislikes President Obama. In a somewhat contentious interview, President Obama sat down with Fox News to talk health care reform but spent much of the time being interrupted. Obama couldn't get a word in edgewise with Bret Baier's mouth going. Total disrespect and an embarassment.

"I'm trying to answer your questions and you keep on interrupting," Obama told Bret Baier.

Fox News' Bret Baier interrupted President Obama so many times during Wednesday's interview that Newsweek described the enounter as a "interrupt-a-thon."

Baier acknowledged his repeated interjections at the end of the interview, by interrupting the president once more to apologize. Baier told Obama "I apologize for interrupting you, sir. I tried to get the most for our buck here."

MSNBC's Lawrence O'Donnell said that he could not recall a reporter ever questioning or interrupting an American president in such an aggressive way. Certainly, O'Donnell argued, Fox News never took that approach with former President George W. Bush.

I stopped watching fox altogether years ago. there is an uprising of hatred few had seen in small towns. the heat of this hatred balloons it greater in the mid to metropolitan cities. for centuries there has been the complaint of change being needed, now it's specifically not the change some minority majority wanted, but the focal, we all agree, change they have never named.
Thank you to the media for bringing the building hatred change to my family room.

How disrespectful towards the President! Fox should do something about this reporter who is disgracing their network! To me, it seems the reporter is letting his personal feelings mess up the interview.

Fox news is doing more damage to themselves than to the president. When someone doesn't show respect then they will not get respect. Fox news is operating on borrowed time and it's only time that their network is out of business especially if they continue doing sleezy work. Shame on you FOX. This country is made up of all type of people and as a network you should respect everyone. The best thing right now is for someone to start a campaign to put pressure on their cable companies to eliminate FOX from their cable.

As always our president handled the situation with grace, respect and dignity. I have never seen the
disrespect and safety violations that have happened with President Obama happen with any other president.
He came into a mess that clearly did not happen overnight nor will it be solved in a short time limit.

Perhaps not even in his term. People get a grip, you can't change that, yes he is the President of these United States whether you like it or not... NO ONE has been through a class to run the country, no one has been
able to do a perfect job of running a country that has been in everybody's business and lied about countless
situation. lining the pockets of the rich and not really caring about the poor. Fox News needs do something about the way this man has disrespected the President of the United States.... Send him to a class that teaches manners that would be a great start, obviously it should have been done at home...

The blatent disrespect comes as no surprise to me. Fox news has not hidden its disregard for having a black president since the campaign and election period. However, I am surprised that President Obama decided to go on any Fox news show. It is just more dislike and prejudice against the color and not the man. That is why it has been so hard for the President to get anything accomplished. There are people out there who dont want to see him succeed and just want show him to his face their dislike for him in the position of authority. I tell all my friends, pray for our President everyday. He needs our love and support more than anything.

I dislike Fox News so much, I probably would have never seen this farce of an interview. Thanks for posting this. I will share with my network.
