Bill O’Reilly swore his pre-Super Bowl interview with President Barack Obama would go down in “journalistic history,” and now those willing to contribute to a good cause can own a piece of it.
The Fox News host announced on his program Monday that his handwritten notes from the interview, signed by both him and Obama, were up for auction. The proceeds would go to benefit the Fischer House, a charity that helps the families of severely wounded veterans.
The bidding started at $10,000. As of Tuesday afternoon, the highest bid was $11,200.
O’Reilly has been fiercely defensive of the interview with Obama. He denied that he asked typically “Republican” questions and unloaded on Washington Post columnist Dana Milbank for writing that he was “hostile” to the President.
