During a discussion with the Washington Post on Tuesday, Fox News Channel anchor Bret Baier stated that while FNC’s “opinion side” has had no problems getting interviews with the president, the news side has had problems getting interviews with the president.
Baier said [relevant remarks begin around 15:00] that the news side of FNC is in the same position as all the other networks in trying to get interviews with the president. He added, “The opinion side of Fox News does not have a problem getting interviews. But my request, Chris Wallace’s request for an interview with the president has not been answered. And I last interviewed candidate Trump almost 500 days ago, and have asked every week since, for an interview, sometimes twice a week, and have — you know, I’ve seen him off the record a couple of times at engagements, and he said, ‘It’s going to happen very soon.'”
