I want to get this out of the way right off the bat, I am a fan of both of these showmen... yes, as deplorable as it might sound (and as deplorable as his views might often be) I get a huge kick out of Bill 'Papa Bear' O'Reilly. Say what you will, but the man is an entertainer and so was his, ever more frequent, quest on last night's The O'Reilly Factor on Fox News. The guest, The Daily Show's Jon Stewart...
They spend the majority of the ten minutes together discussing the recent hot-bed issue of President Obama extending an invite to Common to come to the White House. There is little doubt for me who won this debate, argument or 'pettifogging' but make sure to watch both parts and make up your own mind.
Unfortunately, the catch-22 of promoting these excellent clips is that all the video views are being immediately converted into cold hard cash for the fine people at Fox News... an organization I wouldn't otherwise support. C'mon Jon, you have to get Bill back to Comedy Central so the views can fund important things like puppets making prank phone calls.
Part 1: Jon Stewart Goes Head-to-Head With Bill O'Reilly
Part 2: Jon Stewart Goes Head-to-Head With Bill O'Reilly
Regardless of who you think won the debate (cough, Stewart, cough), there is no doubting that this makes for some interesting and engaging television and elevates the level of discourse at Fox News. As always, you can catch The O'Reilly Factor on Fox News every night at 8 and 11 p.m. ET and The Daily Show on Comedy Central Monday-Thursday at 10 p.m. ET.
