You may recall back in June when President Obama slammed Fox News for consistently attacking him. On Monday’s edition of The O’Reilly Factor, Bill O’Reilly and Major Garrett discussed this:

GARRETT: As to the strategy now, I would say it’s not a strategy now other than the one time the president mentioned it in the White House, when he was interviewed by John Harwood of CNBC, and he specifically labeled us as a network that wasn’t adequately favorable to him. That was the way he put it.

O’REILLY: No, that’s ridiculous. I mean, no network should be favorable to President Obama. It’s our job to be skeptical of the powerful.
