Barack Obama ends Fox embargo

Candidate to appear on 'Fox News Sunday'

Sen. Barack Obama has ended his boycott of “Fox News Sunday” by agreeing to an exclusive, one-on-one interview that will air Sunday.

The leading contender for the Democratic presidential nomination has avoided all things Fox, tacitly suggesting the network that touts its news as “fair and balanced” instead follows a conservative agenda.

“Fox News Sunday” host Chris Wallace first invited Obama onto the show almost two years ago. Obama agreed, but every time bookers called the Obama camp, they were told the senator could not appear due to “scheduling conflicts.”

“Fox News Sunday” recently displayed an “Obama Watch” clock, tracking the time that has elapsed since Obama agreed to do the show. As of Sunday, the watch read 765 days, 13 hours, 54 minutes, 47 seconds.
