"Fox News, I can't speak for Fox News, but I'm the table setter here at 8 o'clock. Do you think I'm being unfair to you, do you think I've been giving you," O'Reilly asked.

"Absolutely, of course you are, Bill. But I like you anyway," Obama said.

"Give me how I'm unfair," O'Reilly responded.

"We just went through an interview in which you asked about health care not working, IRS, were we wholly corrupt, Benghazi," Obama said. "So, the list of issues you talk about ... they're defined by you guys in a certain way."

Obama was later asked by O'Reilly if he believes he's the most liberal president in American history.

"You know, the truth of the matter is that when you look at some of my policies in a lot of ways, Richard Nixon was more liberal than I was," Obama said. "He started the EPA. You know, a whole lot of the regulatory state that has helped make our air and water clean."
