Fox News host Bill O’Reilly interviewed President Obama today to get him "on the record" about the Benghazi conspiracy that Fox News has promoted.
O’Reilly also asked President Obama if telling Americans that they could keep their insurance was the biggest mistake that he has made, reports TalkingPointsMemo.com (video below).
"This is one I regret and I've said I regretted," President Obama responded. "I think we all anticipated that there would be glitches. I don't think I anticipated or anybody anticipated the degree of the problems with the website."
O'Reilly asked the president why he did not fire Health and Human Services Director Kathleen Sebelius, to which Obama said, "I promise you that we hold everyone up and down the line accountable."
The Fox News conservative also brought up the Benghazi terrorist attack from 2012 and the IRS scandal from 2013, notes Mediaite.com.
Obama repeated the facts of each situation and noted the congressional investigations, but O'Reilly insisted "we still don’t know what happened."
“They believe [that] because folks like you are telling them that,” President Obama said. “These kinds of things keep on surfacing in part because you and your TV station will promote them."
