Obama to appear on Fox News, with healthcare reform down to the wire
Obama will sit for an interview with Fox News anchor Bret Baier, to be broadcast Wednesday at 6 p.m., Eastern time.

“Obviously they have a pretty big audience share, and I think it’s safe to say that a lot of members that are undecided are going to be: They watch and their constituents watch this news,” White House press secretary Robert Gibbs said Tuesday. “So we’re happy to continue the argument on why healthcare reform is important to pass this year on Fox.”
