Newsom to appear on ‘The O’Reilly Factor’ 

Mayor Gavin Newsom has been so adamant about his jobs initiatives recently that he doesn’t mind going into the lion’s den to pitch them.

Newsom will appear on FOX News’ “The O’Reilly Factor” tonight at 5 p.m. for what will surely make for an interesting – if not sensationally combative – interview.

The mayor will do his best to discuss several jobs-related subjects, including President Barack Obama’s incentives to encourage small businesses to hire new workers (the mayor has proposed a similar initiative for San Francisco) and his proposed extension of the federal JobsNow program, the Mayor’s Office said.

But Newsom’s press secretary Tony Winnicker said he’s well aware that Bill O’Reilly “will throw every other Only in SF issue at him as well.”

“He’s well prepared” for any curve balls O’Reilly will likely throw Newsom’s way, Winnicker said.

Newsom recently appeared on a few MSNBC programs to pitch jobs initiatives, but why subject himself to the Republican-leaning FOX News, particularly O’Reilly, who is known to unleash salacious verbal assaults against progressive San Francisco policies?

No matter what, Republicans and Democrats will need to team up on efforts to put Americans to work, Winnicker responded.
