A White House official said Friday night that it was “inaccurate” to say the interview had been rescheduled, contradicting a Fox spokesperson.
NEW YORK — The Super Bowl interview between President Joe Biden and Fox Corporation’s streaming service appears to be off again.
A White House official said Friday evening that it was “inaccurate” to say the interview had been rescheduled, contradicting a Fox spokesperson who said it was taking place earlier in the day. .
The statement appeared to mark a definitive end to the ping-pong saga over whether Biden would sit down with Fox interviewers before Sunday’s Super Bowl. Allow the network (in this case, Fox) to interview you.
However, negotiations broke down this year.
The exchange began Friday with a tweet by White House press secretary Karine Jean-Pierre.
“The president looked forward to interviewing Fox Soul to discuss the Super Bowl, the State of the Union address, and important issues affecting black people’s daily lives.” I have been contacted.”
Fox Soul was made in 2020 and is aimed at a black audience.
Hours later, a Fox spokesperson released conflicting statements.
“There was initial confusion after the White House reached out to Fox Soul Thursday night. Fox Soul looks forward to interviewing the president on Super Bowl Sunday.”
The spokesperson added that the interviewers — actress and “Cocktails with Queens” host Vivica A. Fox and sportscaster Mike Hill — flew from Los Angeles to Washington.
But a White House statement late Friday added another twist.
“As I said earlier, we arranged an interview with the president with FOX sports presenters Mike Hill and Vivica A. Fox prior to the Super Bowl, but Fox canceled the interview.” said the statement. The statement stating that the interview has been rescheduled is inaccurate. ”
In 2021, Biden spoke with CBS News anchor Norah O’Donnell before the game, and last year with NBC News’ Lester Holt.
