Obama and Hillary slam Fox News and O'Reilly interview with epic responses

While millions of Americans tuned in to watch one of the most lopsided Super Bowls in history, a pre-game interview conducted by Bill O'Reilly with President Obama sparked two notable responses.

Bill O'Reilly's interview with President Obama, which Marc Ambinder, editor-at-large of The Week.com, called ridiculous, was more of the same. Fox News talking point after talking point was thrown at President Obama. Whether it was the tired "scandals" like Benghazi or the IRS allegedly targeting conservative Tea party groups or more "Obamacare" hysteria, the interview came across as nothing more than typical Fox News drivel. At one point during the interview, the otherwise rather calm President Obama decided to cut Bill O'Reilly off during yet another question about Benghazi to point out the obvious, that the Fox News network has been feeding false and misleading information to a large portion of the conservative audience.

“And they believe it because folks like you tell them that...These kinds of things keep on surfacing in part because you and your TV station will promote them."

Less than two hours after the Obama/O'Reilly interview, former First Lady/New York Senator/Secretary of State Hillary Clinton took to her Twitter account during the Super Bowl to take a shot at the Fox network.

It's so much more fun to watch FOX when it's someone else being blitzed & sacked! #Superbowl

Though conservatives will cheer O'Reilly for digging into the president with more "scandal" questions, the rest of the country could chuckle at the response from Obama and Clinton.
