By all counts, Super Bowl Sunday is a big day for News Corp., whose Fox network is hosting the game this weekend.
In keeping with tradition, President Obama has granted a pre-game interview to the hosting network -- and this year the honor goes to Fox News' Bill O'Reilly.
Whether O'Reilly lives up to Rupert Murdoch's expectations remains to be seen -- last November Murdoch publicly slammed O'Reilly's interview skills, saying: "Bill O'Reilly gets Hillary Clinton on. He's disgraceful the way he gives her such an easy ride."
But a recent corporate press release on the day's coverage does provide some insight into how top Fox brass hopes to frame Obama's upcoming interview on "Fair and Balanced" Fox News:
