The Huffington Post definitely got this headline right. Obama Fox News Interview: Bret Baier Interrupts Obama.

MSNBC's Lawrence O'Donnell said that he could not recall a reporter ever questioning or interrupting an American president in such an aggressive way. Certainly, O'Donnell argued, Fox News never took that approach with former President George W. Bush.

Countdown did a nice job with the mash up of the interview showing just how many times he was interrupted. The Nation's Chris Hayes weighed in and I agree with him. The problem is not someone doing an aggressive interview. The problem is with the amount of propaganda they were pushing while doing it. I'm not sure either just what the President thought he gained by going on there.
