Jon Stewart, Bill O’Reilly debate live online Oct. 6

Jon Stewart Bill OReilly debate

At last! A political debate that’s sure to entertain even folks who don’t love themselves a good political debate!

In what promises to be an unparalleled evening of political discourse — and razor-wit humor — The Daily Show‘s Jon Stewart and Fox News Channel stalwart Bill O’Reilly will square off in a live debate that will be streamed live online on Saturday, October 6 at 8pm ET from Lisner Auditorium at The George Washington University. Billed as “The Rumble in the Air-Conditioned Auditorium” ( and also “Why Al Gore Invented the Internet”) and priced at a surprisingly low $4.95, the event will raise money for as-yet unspecified charities chosen by Stewart and O’Reilly.

In announcing the debate on Monday night’s The O’Reilly Factor, O’Reilly had this to say: “The nation wins because there will be plenty of no-spin analysis about serious issues. Stewart wins because he finally makes the big time. And I win because I can make fun of Stewart.”

“It’s going to be, like, the worst Thanksgiving anyone ever went to,” counters Stewart in a special pre-debate promo recorded by each of the candidates:
