Fox will interview Obama

November 18, 2009|Associated Press

President Obama will give an interview to Fox News Channel's Major Garrett, perhaps signaling a thaw in relations between the network and administration.

The White House confirmed Tuesday that Garrett would be included among a round of network interviews that the president is giving today in Beijing. Fox and the administration have been in a public fight since former White House Communications Director Anita Dunn said the network acted like the research or communications arm of the Republican Party. The president pointedly avoided Fox when he gave a round of interviews to Sunday shows about his healthcare plan.

Garrett, Fox's senior White House correspondent and a CNN reporter before moving to Fox, will have 10 minutes with the president.
