Why Didn't Garrett Ask Obama About The Bow?

Reported by Ellen - November 19, 2009 -

President Obama sat down with Major Garrett for a few minutes in an interview that was aired on yesterday's (11/18/09) Special Report. It was straightforward, fair and respectful. But there was no mention of one of Fox News' biggest stories of late, President Obama's bow to the Emperor of Japan. If Fox News thought the bow so important that the network obsessed over it on multiple shows and gave it top billing on their Fox Nation website, shouldn't Garrett have asked about it? Or does its omission signal the "fair and balanced" network's tacit admission that it's not as important a story as they've made it out to be? Or did the "we report, you decide" network deliberately pull its punches in order to land the interview in the wake of tensions between them and the White House? Whatever the reason, it did not reflect well on Fox News. (H/T Nayef)
