    You must not have watched the same interview, because I saw O'Reilly give him plenty of chances to respond. Politics, in their golden times, also didn't rely on the "good looks" factor of a candidate. It wasn't nearly as...well...political. I agree, anyone being interviewed should be able to give their two cents worth, but if you fail to give an answer to the question, whether on tv, or in a court-room, don't you ask the same question, and ask for a firm response, rather than a watered down, beat-around-the-bush, dodge? Not that I feel like Obama was dodging, but you make it sound like I think he was. I also said that I like to watch all the networks, because each is biased (albeit Fox news is by fair the most central from what I've witnessed) to some degree.
    Lol, FOX News is one of the most biased. Lets just get that clear. If its the station you choose to watch the most, thats fine, because all networks have bias to them. But to say FOX News is the most central is wrong. Sorry...

    And I stand by what I say with O'Reilly. I saw bits and pieces of the interview and O'Reilly actually gave Obama more respect and courtesy than he does most guest. I believe O'Reilly did a sit-down with Hilary and he was the same there so, maybe he doesn't mess with the big-fish as much...

    Personally, this alone makes me question him.

    I like the part where Obama admitted he was going to increase taxes back to Clinton era, and he was all for the tranfer of $$$ from the wealthy to the poor. In essence he admitted he was a socialist economically.

    As if it doesn't happen on both sides of the fence .
    Ummm...who said it didn't happen on both sides? The topic of this thread is Obama/O'Reilly. It isn't....well, it happens on the other side of the fence as well.

    Stick around. They'll be better opportunities to Obama bash. This isn't quite one of them.

    Just to add, All answers are not yes/no. Some answers require a thoughful response. To just answer yes or no basically leaves out the "why". Dodging an answer is much different than explaining your position.

    What you see as bullying, I see as cutting through the crap. If I ask you a yes or no question, I want a yes or no answer.

That being said, I do agree with you in that he has a very domineering manner in the interviews/conversations. THAT being said, so do pretty much ANY talk-show personality, right or left. I've watched the "liberal" shows as well as the "conservative" on Fox and other networks (just because I need to know my enemy more than I actually enjoy watching CNN/MSNBC). But overall, I feel like he offers a fair and accurate interview. If you aren't willing to be grilled by a hard hitting character then you shouldn't be in the political field anyway .
    Eh, your last sentence is one of the problems in politics today. Its not about 'gotcha', or who you 'get a win' over by bullying them or catching them off-guard, etc. Politics, in their golden times at least, were for intelligent, thoughtful people. To me, I'd MUCH rather see a politician or authority-figure be allowed the chance to respond in an intelligent, thoughtful manner as opposed to be pressed by a domineering-personality to give a simple yes or no answer. Of course, seeing said domineering-personality DEMAND a yes or no answer makes for good television. But remember, there IS a reason that, what, 60%+ of O'Reilly's viewers describe themselves as Conservative...

Some of the interviews I've seen with O'Reilly, it seems more as though I'm watching an abusive child scold their child as opposed to two rational-thinking adults trying to have a conversation. Thats one reason I think people who have different viewpoints as O'Reilly wouldn't necessarily choose his show as a medium to express their thoughts...

    I do, however, agree that it was a VERY smart move by Obama to sit down with O'Reilly. I like the Factor, and always find it funny that very few people from the left are willing to show up in person with O'Reilly. I watched some of Hillary getting the interview from him too. I did like what Obama said, and his overall sincerity in what he said (despite the fact I disagree with him). Any person that is willing to stand for their beliefs, despite the unpopularity of them (unless they are of a moral issue) is someone I can respect. Of course, I still disagree with him .

    I like hearing differing points of view. I personally enjoyed the interview because I also think he did quite well, despite being cut off a couple (well, more than a couple) of times.

    Interview to be continued on Mon. I'll post a link as soon as I can remember (unless someone beats me to it).

    I can't stand O'Reilly, I find the guy insufferable. I will give him credit though, for getting Obama to sit down and face some challenging questions.
