Via The New York Observer:

On Feb. 3, a k a Super Bowl Sunday, in an original News Corp. smorgasbord, reporters from FOX News will be teaming up with reporters from FOX owned and operated stations from around the country for a three hour broadcast event, focusing on—USA! USA!—presidential politics and professional football.

As the anchors toggle back and forth between discussion of the Super Bowl and Super Tuesday, they will chew over political dispatches from FOX Broadcasting reporters from around the country.

FOX Super Sunday will also include a behind-the-scenes look as the action gets underway for the Superbowl. Meanwhile, FOX Business Network's Alexis Glick will offer a peek at the best commercials and the economics behind the biggest sporting event of the year while FOX News correspondents Carl Cameron and Major Garrett will provide live updates from the campaign trail alongside correspondent Bret Baier in Washington, D.C. Read on...

FOXNews hates the fact that Keith Olbermann's popularity has skyrocketed and that he appeared on NBC's Sunday Night Football this season, so I suppose this shouldn't come as much of a surprise. It will be interesting to see just how partisan things get, as of now it doesn't appear as though BillO or Hannity will be involved. Sports fans, what do you think about this mixture of FOXNews and the Super Bowl?
