The White House revealed on Friday that Fox News’ parent company, Fox Corporation, has canceled President Joe Biden’s Super Bowl Sunday interview.
In a statement, White House Press Secretary Karine Jean-Pierre said Biden had planned to do an interview to Fox Soul, a live streaming platform aimed at Black Americans owned by FOX Television Stations, instead of sitting down for an interview with one of Fox News’ anchors.
Rather than allow Biden to do an interview with Fox Soul, executives at the company canceled the interview.
“The President was looking forward to an interview with Fox Soul to discuss the Super Bowl, the State of the Union, and critical issues impacting the everyday lives of Black Americans,” Jean-Pierre tweeted on Friday. “ We’ve been informed that Fox Corp has asked for the interview to be cancelled.”
