Obama Finally Grants Fox News Interview

In the latest sign of thawing relations between sworn enemies, Fox News White House correspondent Major Garrett has been granted an interview with President Obama to take place next week in China. The news was announced a day after interim White House Communications Director Anita Dunn, leader of the administration's attacks on the news channel, made public that she'll be stepping down, and a week since Obama adviser David Axelrod gave an interview with Garrett. The administration's war with Fox News was the focus of controversy when the White House indicated its willingness to deny the channel—known for its right-wing opinion programming—newsworthy interviews, and explicitly attacked it for having a conservative bias.
